Dunn was an integral reason as to why the Friars were able to take down both the Butler Bulldogs and Georgetown Hoyas last week as PC enjoyed a 2-0 stretch. The 6-foot-3 guard recorded an average of 20.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 7.5 assists in the two meetings, including a 25 point, eight rebound and six assist outing versus the Bulldogs at Hinkle Fieldhouse last Tuesday.

Delgado, meanwhile, enjoyed a high level of success last week as well. In Seton Hall's win over the Creighton Bluejays, which was helped by the theatrics of Sterling Gibbs, the 6-foot-9 freshman scored seven points and added nine rebounds, two steals and a block to his line. Earlier in the week, Delgado dropped 12 points, six rebounds and two assists with no turnovers in a loss to the Xavier Musketeers.
