  • Pirates Drop Nail-Biter to Louisville, 70-65

    Posted 2018-12-03 22:26:53 by: Exec Exec

      (Cale, Seton Hall) NEWARK, N.J. – Junior (Trenton, N.J.) had a game-high 23 points, but the Seton Hall men's basketball team, up by as many as 12 points in the first half, fell to Louisville, 70-65, at the Prudential Center on Saturday.   Powell's 23 points came on the strength of 9-for-11 shooting from the free-throw line. Both (Makurdi, Nigeria) and (Tbilisi, Georgia) also scored in double-figures for The Hall. Nzei had 12 points on 6-for-8 shooting, while Mamukelashvili finished with 10 points.  Both forwards had a team-best six rebounds.   Turning Point: After leading by as many as 12 in the first half and as many as nine in the second half (52-43, 13:52), the Pirates found themselves down four points, 63-59, with 2:02 remaining when Powell drained a three-pointer to cut the Pirates deficit to just one. With the score the same and under a minute to play, Louisville's Ryan McMahon hit a three-pointer to put the Cardinals back up four with just 36 seconds left.  After a free-throw by Mamukelashvili, a steal of Louisville's inbounds pass and a put back by (New York, N.Y.) cut the Pirate deficit back to one, 66-65. The Pirates twice fouled Jordan Nwora in the final seconds, but Nwora was able to make all four of his free-throws to seal the victory for Louisville.   Louisville scored the first bucket of the second half to go ahead, 38-34, but the Pirates responded with an 11-1 run, capped by a pretty lay-in by Powell to take a 45-39 lead with 17:08 left in regulation.  The Pirate advantage grew to as many as nine points, 52-43, on another fast-break bucket by Powell, but the Cardinals stormed back with a pair of three-pointers by Ryan McMahon to cut the lead to 52-49 with 10:34 to go.  Nzei's layup put The Hall up 54-49, but then Seton Hall's offense went cold.  The Pirates made just one of their next 12 shots from the floor, and a scoring drought of 4:19 allowed Louisville to jump in front, 63-59. ...

  • No. 21 Pirates Rally to Stun Butler at Hinkle

    Posted 2018-01-08 01:49:33 by: Exec Exec

      (Cale, Seton Hall) No. 21 Pirates Rally to Stun Butler at Hinkle INDIANAPOLIS - Down 11 points with 9:57 to play in the second half against Butler at Hinkle Fieldhouse.  Where have we heard this before? For the second straight year, the Seton Hall men's basketball team overcame a double-digit, second-half deficit to stun Butler, this time on the strength of 29 points from senior (Brooklyn, N.Y.) and a career-high 28 points from senior (Bajos De Haina, Dominican Republic) as the No. 21 Pirates toppled Butler, 90-87, Saturday afternoon. Last year, Seton Hall (14-2, 3-0 BIG EAST) overcame a 10-point deficit with 7:03 to play in the game. Delgado, who had 18 of his 28 points in the first half alone, also grabbed 15 rebounds and issued six assists. Carrington matched Delgado in assists and made a career-high seven three-pointers, including six in the second half. In the superior BIG EAST Conference in which anyone can beat anyone, Seton Hall currently stands as the only remaining unbeaten team. Turning Point It was a close game throughout, but a Butler 19-8 run early in the second half put the Bulldogs on top 65-54 with 9:57 to play. All of a sudden, Seton Hall's three-point and free throw shooting came alive. Delgado knocked down four consecutive free throws with a Butler miss in the middle to close within seven.  Then after one Kamar Baldwin free throw, senior (Bronx, N.Y.) found Carrington open for a three. On the in-bound play, Baldwin was whistled for a deadball foul, giving possession back to the Pirates. Delgado then fed Carrington for a bomb triple, to cut the deficit to just two, 66-64, with 8:09 to play. That sequence got The Hall back into the game, and the two teams then traded blows for the next six minutes. Kelan Martin would score for Butler; Carrington and Rodriguez both hit threes; Delgado had a huge steal that led to a fast break dunk by freshman (Middletown, Del.). It came down to Martin tying the game with free ...

    Posted 2017-12-05 14:24:58 by: Exec Exec

      (Myles Cale, Seton Hall)   Rodriguez Scores 29, Hits Game-Winning Shot to Lift Seton Hall Over No. 17 Louisville in True Road Victory Louisville, Ky. - With the game tied at 77-77, the final seconds ticking away and ice in his veins, senior Desi Rodriguez (Bronx, N.Y.) scored the game-winning layup in a lane full of traffic to lift the Seton Hall men’s basketball team past No. 17 Louisville, 79-77, Sunday afternoon at KFC Yum! Center. Rodriguez finished the game with 29 points, one shy of his career high.   The win is Seton Hall’s second over an Associated Press ranked team in the last four days; the Pirates also toppled No. 22 Texas Tech this past Thursday. And this is the second consecutive true road game that the Pirates have won over a ranked opponent; last March the Pirates won at No. 13 Butler. This was also Seton Hall’s first win in Louisville since Feb. 25, 1952.    Rodriguez was 12-for-18 from the field and also grabbed eight rebounds. Senior Khadeen Carrington (Brooklyn, N.Y.) finished the game with 18 points and four assists. Senior Angel Delgado (Bajos De Haina, Dominican Republic) produced his fifth double-double of the year and NCAA leading 55th of his career with 10 points and 13 rebounds.   Turning Point   The Pirates found themselves trailing by seven points, 59-52, with 11:33 left in the second half, but after a 30-second timeout, The Hall punched back as Carrington hit a floater in the lane, Rodriguez swished a jumper ofhis own after a Louisville missed three, and freshman Myles Cale (Appoquinimink) stole the ball and made a layup in transition to get the Pirates to within one, 59-58.   The Pirates took the lead on Carrington’s and-one finish at the rim, making the free throw at 7:26 to put the Pirates up 62-61. Senior Ismael Sanogo (Newark, N.J.) then read the Louisville passing lane perfectly for a steal and fast break dunk to make it a three-point ...
