Pirates take Hoyas on long Second Half Walk, Notch 67-57 Win in Washington DC

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Noon tips are never easy... unless you beat a marquee opponent in their own house. Then, they're easy.

The story of this game came in the second half, as Seton Hall exploded for 41 points (to Georgetown's 22). When this Pirate team is healthy, they are dangerous. Buzz Williams learned that and now JTIII has been made aware; the rest of the league has been put on notice.

Sterling Gibbs came up short at the stripe (6-for-15, 4 misses in final 3 mins) which, while odd, isn't a cause for concern. In fact, moments after the game, he tweeted:

This is precisely the type of response you want to see from your players. The fact that he is not satisfied with a good league win on the road speaks volumes about him as a person and hopefully this ethos spills over to the rest of the team. The good news is that he is relentless in his pursuit of getting to the line. He took 15 free throws this afternoon.

Fuquan Edwin now is the owner of Seton Hall's steals record with 262, and counting, career steals. Fu also poured in 24 points to go along with 5 rebounds. The captain hit 3 consecutive 3-pointers in a 4-minute stretch late in the 2nd half that essentially iced this one for the Pirates. Congrats to the hard working senior who in my estimation has NBA written all over him.

Freshman Jaren Sina continues to impress, as he scored 8 points going 2-3 from deep coming off the bench. He always seems to be in the right place at the right time (this is no coincidence), as he also grabbed 5 very important rebounds (with just 1 TO).

Next up for Seton Hall, a reeling St. John's team. Steve Lavin would share his best hair gel to get a win (yeah, it's that important) so look for a dog fight in Jamaica, Queens this Thursday. Enjoy the afternoon and weekend, y'all. Great win.
