Seton Hall Basketball: Halftime Notes - Seton Hall 24, Temple 34

-Halftime adjustments, Kevin Willard? Yup, they'll be needed.  Possibly relaxing on the substitution patterns might be your first step.  It's a revolving door on the Pirates sideline.  Was there not a rotation plan coming into the game? Experimenting in the season opener? That's what the exhibition was for.

-Seton Hall finished the final ten minutes of the first half terribly as Temple rolled to a 17-4 run.  The defense continually broke down, Juan Fernandez started heating up and the offense looked clueless with the ball in their hands. 

-The Pirates are shooting 24% including 0-for-9 from long distance. 

-Temple is dominating the glass to a tune of 22-13 rebounds. 

-Hazell leads the Pirates with 8PTs, despite just shooting 4-of-13 from the floor.

-As always with Seton Hall big men, Ferrakohn Hall made sure to launch a 3PT attempt from the top of the key.  I don't care if he, JRob, or Pope made 3PT attempts in a scrimmage, exhibition, or even in a game last year.  The big men need to stop chucking 3's.

-Speaking of Hall, his game hasn't been pretty tonight.  He's attempting wild, off-balanced shots around the rim, even falling over twice; once while shooting and once while trying to pass the ball back out.  He's 1-of-4 from the floor. 

-The defense has been weak inside, the Owls are setting up camp in the paint and Pope and Hall have been providing little resistance. 

-Is it me or are Keon and Polynice dribbling wildly out there? Everytime they lead the break, it looks like the ball is going to come flying of out their possession. 

-Two positives from this half, only two.  The Pirates were 6-of-7 from the charity stripe and have only turned the ball over 5 times.  That's it.  Two positives. 

-Get to work on those adjustments, Kevin.
