Newark, N.J. — Sound the alarm bells. With the state of New Jersey under a state of emergency despite minimal snow projected over night, it was Seton Hall who achieved emergency status after an alarming 97-93 loss to DePaul at Prudential Center, their third straight.
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.
Newark, N.J. — This was easily a game that Seton Hall could have lost. But they found the slightest of extra gears to take care of Butler 76-75 not far from midnight and just days after falling at DePaul while on the cusp of a national ranking.

Newark, N.J. — Seton Hall was the second-best team for the majority of their 76-74 rallying win over St. John’s in their Big East opener, but they took punches and dug deep when it counted. This is not an anomaly, but a growing trend for a young team experiencing a growth spurt.
