JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — It wasn’t long ago that Seton Hall was a turnover happy team. The backbone to the Pirates’ post-season push? Quincy McKnight, and less turnovers.
Myles Powell, Quincy McKnight, Mike Nzei and Kevin Willard took the podium prior to Seton Hall’s open practice at Jacksonville round of 64 media day on Wednesday evening.
Of course it took double overtime. It had to. Myles Powell scored 35 but Seton Hall ultimately fell to Georgetown 77-71 in a drama-filled double overtime thriller.
A full week of rest awaits Seton Hall after getting wringed out by St. John’s on Saturday at the Garden. Kevin Willard must re-enter the lab and start conjuring a solution before the N.C.A.A.’s slip out of reach.
New York — Seton Hall looked second-best all night and were never truly able to recover from an early 28-5 deficit in a 78-70 loss that further damages their NCAA hopes.
