NEWARK – A fiery halftime speech from Kevin Willard motivated Seton Hall (5-1) to lock down on defense in the second half which would prove to be the difference in a must-have 69-62 win over Georgia (3-2) on Saturday night at Prudential Center.
Seton Hall notched an important 69-62 revenge win over Georgia after a clutch 22 points from Isaiah Whitehead and a key 20 points from Khadeen Carrington that tied his career high. Yante Maten led Georgia with 21 points and 8 boards.
Seton Hall didn’t ultimately take the route they would have desired at the Charleston Classic, but a strong showing against Ole Miss in their finale will look to be built upon when the Pirates take on Georgia on Saturday night in Newark.
Just because we’re getting into the thick of college basketball season doesn’t mean Seton Hall isn’t still hitting the recruiting trails. The coaching staff is hounding two Class of 2016 targets that are available to join the team next summer.
An 18-6 second half run from Seton Hall broke the game open as nine Pirates scored in an important 75-63 win over Ole Miss at the Charleston Classic.
Seton Hall led from start to finish but were never able to build a comfortable lead in a 67-59 win over Bradley in the losers bracket of the Charleston Classic.
After trailing by 16 points with 10:38 to play, Seton Hall cut their deficit to just a point with 10 seconds remaining, but a Long Beach State offensive rebound off a missed front-end free throw sealed the deal for the 49ers in an 80-77 first round win at the Charleston Classic.
Beginning with Long Beach State in the opening round of the Charleston Classic, the next five games could strongly influence the overall outcome of Seton Hall’s season.
