-Herb Pope finished with his most impressive game as a Pirate. He recorded his fourth consecutive double-double and could have potentially had the second triple-double in Seton Hall History, had he not been removed from the game halfway through the second half. Pope finished with 22PTS/11REB/5BLK/1STL/1BLK on 10-of-14 shooting. The only flaw in Pope's game was 2-of-7 from the charity stripe, an aspect that he will need to improve as the season progresses.
-After failing to make a bucket in the first half, Eugene Harvey filled up a balanced stat line, albeit, mostly in garbage time, with 10PTS/2AST/3REB/4STL.
-Another nice game for Jeremy "Bigg Game" Hazell, who showed discipline in his shot selection throughout the game. If Hazell can consistently limit the chucking, he'll take his game to a higher level while involving his teammates to build a well balanced attack. Hazell dropped 21 on 6-12 FG/3-7 3PT and a perfect, 6-6 FT shooting.
-Robert Mitchell defines consistency. Another well-balacned effort: 9PTS/7REB/2AST/2STL/3BLK.
-Jamel Jackson scored all of his points off the bench from the perimeter, hitting 5-of-12.
-The Pirates finished shooting 50% from the field and 40% from the perimeter, while the Highlanders countered with 30% and 25% respectively.
