Post-Game Notes: NJIT 53 Seton Hall Pirates 93

-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.

...more to come in tomorrow's morning after post.
