Marquette vs Seton Hall Match Preview

Seton Hall would like to forget about the way it closed the regular season, but then again, so would Marquette. The 15th-ranked Pirates lost their final two regular-season games and ended up as the No. 3 seed in the Big East tournament, which they begin Thursday with a matchup against the sixth-seeded Golden Eagles at Madison Square Garden.

While Seton Hall scuffled to the finish line, Marquette closed in worse fashion, dropping six of its final seven affairs (including a nine-point setback against the Pirates). Myles Powell, the second-leading scorer in the Big East, averaged 25.5 points in the two matchups with Marquette and finished the season with averages of 21.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.2 steals. The dynamic senior will certainly be a focus defensively for the Golden Eagles, who must find a way to slow the Wooden Award finalist if they hope to pick up a key late-season victory to impress the NCAA Tournament selection committee. “He’s been such a key part of our program for so long,” Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard said. “To see him get unanimous decision was tremendous, and I appreciate the coaches recognizing all that he does for our program.”

The Marquette Golden Eagles and the Seton Hall Pirates will both be gunning for a victory on Thursday when they meet at Madison Square Garden.

Oddsmakers opened the Pirates as -2.5-point favorites versus the Golden Eagles, while the game's total opened at 151.5.

Seton Hall was a 77-60 loser in their most recent outing on the road against Bluejays. They failed to cover the +3-point spread as underdogs.

Marquette was a 88-86 loser in its last match on the road against Red Storm. They failed to cover the -3-point spread as favorites.

Seton Hall (#16) vs Marquette

ABOUT MARQUETTE (18-12, 8-10 Big East): If there's a more dynamic player in the Big East than Powell, it's Marquette senior Markus Howard, who became the all-time leading scorer in Big East history last month and boasts a scoring average of 27.8 points on 41.2 percent 3-point shooting. “It means a lot to win in March,” Howard said. “As a team, it’s something we haven’t accomplished. It’s something personally I haven’t accomplished. We’re definitely working toward making that goal a realization.” Sacar Anim (13.1) is the other double-digit scorer for the Golden Eagles and is coming off a 24-point performance against St. John's in the regular-season finale.

ABOUT SETON HALL (21-9, 13-5): Powell is complemented by Sandro Mamukelashvili (11.9 points), who shoots over 43 percent from 3-point range, and Quincy McKnight (11.9), who averages a team-high 5.4 assists. The Big East's Most Improved Player and Defensive Player of the Year was Romaro Gill, who averages 7.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.2 blocks while shooting 62.8 percent from the floor. “Extremely proud of Romaro. He’s had such a great attitude and unbelievable work ethic,” Willard said. “He anchors our defense for us down low.”
