Notes at court side.......
Seton Hall constantly gets it to a two possession deficit in the second half. Each time he visiting Wildcats answer and get the margin up to 8 to 10 points. In this case, eight almost feels like eighteen.
Impressed with he work of Stephane Manga, 9 points, 4 of 4 from the floor and one block the first half....
Can't or ounce his name correctly but I pressed a always with he play of Nova sophomore guar Ryan Arcidiacono...
Two dunks in transition then a three pointer, Nova leads64-50 with eight nd a half to go. Would take a superb effort to get back in this one.
Injuries have taken their tol on the Hall's dept.Still, give Jay wright's club it's due. Their defens ha Ben active, especially othe perimeter. As the game hits the stretch, the Rock crowd is out of it.
Chalk this one up for the Wildcats.
