NEWARK, N.J. -- Fuquan Edwin scored 22 of his game-high 30 points in the first half to power Seton Hall to its first Big East home victory of the season, 86-69, over DePaul Saturday at the Prudential Center.
Edwin's performance didn't come as a surprise to DePaul (10-11, 2-6 Big East) because he's done this before against the Blue Demons. Two years ago, the senior scored a then career-best 28 points in a 94-73 Seton Hall victory. Last season, he drove for the winning points with 9.6 seconds left to defeat DePaul, 73-72.
Seton Hall (12-8, 3-4) has now won seven of the last eight meetings. Edwin's career-high is the 35 points he scored against Mercer in November. Both of his Big East career-best scoring efforts -- 28 and 30 points -- have come against DePaul.
Mike Krzyzewski says he has good reason to be excited for next season thanks to a combination of Duke's incoming freshmen and a core of experienced upperclassmen.
Georgia guard Juwan Parker has been awarded a medical redshirt, leaving him with two years of eligibility, after missing the 2015-16 season with a partially torn Achilles tendon.
Forward Trevon Bluiett has withdrawn from consideration from the NBA draft and will return to Xavier for his junior season.
