~ The Pirates are getting great contributions out of sophomore Desi Rodriguez through the first 20 minutes. Rodriguez has scored 13 points in the first half, leading the way for all scorers in the game on both sides. The Brooklyn native has gotten off to a hot start this year as he has scored in double figures in each of the Pirates' games in the 2015-16 season thus far.
~ Neither team shot particularly well in the first half though. Rodriguez might be 5-for-7, but the rest of the team is currently shooting 8-for-23 from the field and 3-for-9 from the 3-point line. Bradley currently posts a 8-for-24 mark in the first half and a 2-for-12 mark from the 3-point arc.
~ SHU leads in points in the paint (14-10), rebounds (18-16), points off turnovers (8-2), bench points (6-4) and has led or been tied for the entirety of the first half.
