NEWARK, N.J. — Based on the crowd, the intensity, and the way Seton Hall took care of Marquette 69-55, one would be right to think we’re in March.
Faced with a 13-point deficit in the closing seconds of the first half, a late Myles Powell three sparked a second half comeback that fell short in the final minute as Seton Hall dropped their second Big East road game, 70-66, to Marquette.
Marquette sank 12 threes en route to an 88-85 regular season sweep of Seton Hall as the Pirates dropped an important home game that puts more pressure on them down the stretch.
The last time we saw Marquette, the Golden Eagles were in peak form after scoring 90 in a loss at Villanova and dismantling Seton Hall by 20 in Milwaukee.
No. 13 Seton Hall cut a 13-point first half deficit to one early in the second half, but a crippling 18-2 run from Marquette and 31 points from Andrew Rowsey powered the Golden Eagles to a 84-64 win.
