NEWARK, N.J. — Just when you thought Seton Hall’s season was taking a turn for the worst, a shorthanded Pirates team dug deep for a remarkable 52-48 defensive victory over No. 7 Maryland.

College Park, Md. — This was supposed to be a two-year rebuild for Seton Hall after losing last year’s senior class. Well, someone needs to commend the construction company because this team is coming together a lot quicker than we thought.
Largely intact ahead of their non-conference finale at Maryland on Saturday, Seton Hall has an opportunity to put a definitive stamp of approval on a fairly tough schedule.
