NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Khadeen Carrington tossed in 25 points and Angel Delgado notched his 21st double-double of the season with 21 points and 10 rebounds to propel Seton Hall to a 77-70 victory over Butler on Saturday in a Big East Conference regular-season finale.

The victory pulled Seton Hall (21-10, 10-8) into a three-way tie for third place with Creighton and Providence. The loss dropped Butler (19-12, 9-9) into a sixth-place tie with Marquette.

Myles Powell chipped in with 13 points and five assists for the Pirates, who made half of their 52 shots from the floor and sank 20 of 23 attempts at the free-throw line.

Kelan Martin was a one-man show for the Bulldogs, scoring 35 to account for half of Butler’s points. The senior, who topped the 30-point mark for a fourth time this season, sank 11 of 24 from the field, including 6 of 12 from 3-point range. Tyler Wideman was the only other Bulldog to score in double figures with 10. He made just one basket, but connected on all eight of his free throws.
