After a slow offensive start which saw Seton Hall score just 17 points in the first 14 minutes of play, the Pirates rallied to down Division 2 Caldwell College 67-49 at Walsh Gymnasium in South Orange, N.J. Seton Hall was without senior captain Fuquan Edwin, who did not play due to a violation of team rules. Haralds Karlis played with the same protective face mask that he has previously used. A broken nose is the rumored cause.

Caldwell, who were playing their second exhibition in as many nights (they lost to Rutgers 90-60 on Friday), had a surprising 18-17 advantage over Seton Hall with 5:53 remaining in the first half. In response, the Pirates stymied Caldwell for the remainder of the half while Sterling Gibbs scored Seton Hall's last 7 points en route to a 31-21 halftime lead.

After shooting just 4-for-18 (22%) from deep in the first half, Seton Hall's offensive woes continued in the second period of play. Caldwell never threatened Seton Hall's 10-point halftime cushion despite a final stat-line of 28-68 (41%) FG, 3-11 (27%) FT, 8-31 (25%) 3PT and 15 turnovers for the home team.

Sterling Gibbs made a solid Seton Hall debut by scoring 15 points and dishing 4 assists. He was joined by Gene Teague (13 pts, 7 reb, 21 mins), who was a presence inside, and Brian Oliver (12 pts, 4-11 3PT), who roamed outside the arc. Senior center Aaron Geramipoor fouled out after 11 minutes of action in which he grabbed 4 boards and had 1 assist. Freshman forward Rashed Anthony failed to see action.

Caldwell was led by Dawan Lighty and Wyatt Polk, who both scored 11 points.
