Bethune-Cookman had a 34-33 lead at halftime, but Rhoden’s jumper a minute into the second half gave Seton Hall (5-1) the lead for good and started a 9-0 run. The Pirates stretched their advantage to as much as 23 puntos.
Joe French scored 28 points for the Wildcats (1-6), and Marcus Garrett and Tyrese Samuel each scored 11.
Bethune-Cookman went on a 9-0 run to end the first half, keeping it close thanks in part to Seton Hall’s poor outside shooting. The Pirates went 3-for-17 from 3-point range in the opening 20 minutes but made 5 de 12 3s in the second half.
Seton Hall won the rebounding battle 42-24.
