NEWARK, NJ - With Marquette, a ranked opponent and arguably the better of the two, it was crcuial for Seton Hall to get out and establish a good first four minutes. They did just that. At the 16 minute mark each team had 6 possessions. Seton Hall held a 5-3 lead, which limited Marquette to a 50 offensive efficiency. That number would improve but it was evident, the Hall got the start they needed. Courtside keys: 1. Seton Hall should not be tentative. Play to win not 'keep from losing'. 2. Hit the glass. Do not allow Marquette to extend possessions by rebounding on the offensive end. 3. Continue to 'hang around'. As the game wears on the the score remains close, Seton Hall's confidence can only grow.
