Final Score: DePaul 65, Seton Hall 60

USA TODAY Sports

DePaul bests the struggling Seton Hall Pirates, snapping their 10-game losing streak in the process.

The DePaul Blue Demons defeated the Seton Hall Pirates at home by a score of 65-60, a win which ended the Blue Demons' 10-game losing streak.

Seton Hall kept inching back in the second half, but DePaul was able to hold on to their lead in the contest. An important call that was overturned would have given The Hall the opportunity to tie the game with a three-pointer. But, the ruling allowed DePaul to hold the ball and run the clock out to the bitter end, putting the Pirates in a precarious position when it comes to their postseason chances.

The victory gave DePaul their 10th win in BIG EAST play since the year 2009. No, that is not a typo, either.

The Blue Demons played a solid game against the Pirates, out rebounding them 24 to 16 and sporting a 60.0% field goal percentage in the game.  This mark bested The Hall's 51.1 percent from the field, as the shots were just not falling for almost any Pirate on the evening.

Just how did the Blue Demons pick up this victory? For starters, they had a balanced offense. And along with shooting a lot better than normal with four players (Sandi Marcius, Brandon Young, Durrell McDonald and Billy Garrett Jr.) on their team scoring in the double digits, it provided the perfect recipe for success.

Senior swingman Fuquan Edwin had the most points in the game with 21, while DePaul’s Brandon Young led all DePaul scorers with 19 points of his own.

Not to take anything away from the Blue Demons victory, but Seton Hall played a very poor game. Especially when you consider that they nearly knocked off Creighton on the road in Omaha on Sunday.  The Pirates scoring only 60 points against a team that gives up 75 points per game and notching less rebounds and assists than usual.

Looking forward, Seton Hall will go home to The Rock to face Providence on Friday. DePaul meanwhile will travel to Madison Square Garden on Sunday to play St. John’s, who will be coming off of a tough loss to Xavier that they suffered Tuesday evening as well.
