Seton Hall fell in a hard-luck loss to the vaunted Colonials on Tuesday night.

The Seton Hall Pirates move to 4-2 on the season after falling on the road to the George Washington Colonials, 72-64.

Despite 21 points from sophomore guard Khadeen Carrington, the Pirates couldn't get it done at the Charles E. Smith Center in Washington D.C. Tuesday night as GWU moved to 7-1 with an unblemished 5-0 record at home that includes a win over the Virginia Cavaliers and, now, the Seton Hall Pirates.

Junior forward Tyler Cavanaugh and senior guard Joe McDonald each had 16 points, helping the Colonials to shoot 48.1 percent from the field. The Pirates were skittish, shooting 41.8 percent from the field and were dismal from the perimeter. The Colonials held the Pirates to a 3-point field goal percentage of just 11.1 percent, going a lackluster 2-for-18 from the 3-point arc.

The 3-point line was really where the game was won as the Pirates outrebounded George Washington 38-32 and 19-9 on the offensive side of the glass. Turnovers were equal at 14 apiece but Seton Hall was called for 20 personal fouls on Tuesday night to just 16 by GWU.

Seton Hall continues their road trip on Saturday with their annual matchup with in-state adversary Rutgers in Piscataway at the vaunted RAC.
