Seton Hall vs. Georgetown: Halftime Notes

Even without their top scorer, the Hoyas are up 32-24 over Seton Hall after a back-and-forth first half.

Seton Hall

  • Brandon Mobley has decided to assert himself as a go-to scoring option again. He has 10 points on 5-7 shooting, after scoring 13 points against Providence last time out. He had less than 10 points in five of six games before that.
  • Will Angel Delgado record another double-double? Stupid question. Of course he will. The Big East rebounding leader already has nine rebounds and six points.
  • Isaiah Whitehead has been held scoreless in the first 20 minutes, but he has four assists. As a team, the Pirates have assisted on nine of their 11 field goals.
  • Turnovers and abysmal free throw shooting have held the Hall down. The Pirates have coughed it up 11 times, constantly letting the ball slip through their finger tips. Adding to the troubles, they have gotten just one of eight foul shots to go through the net.

Georgetown

  • The Hoyas are short a major contributor in this one, as leading scorer D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera was ruled out before tip-off. Reports are that DSR is suffering from a lower body injury.
  • On the brighter side, Tyler Adams, who played as a freshman, but had his playing career cut short due to a heart ailment, was in the starting lineup for the Hoyas. On the first possession of the game, Adams got the ball on the low block and was left alone by the Seton Hall defense, leading to a one-handed dunk and a standing ovation from the crowd at the Verizon Center. Try to find a better moment on Senior Day. You can't.
  • Freshman Tre Campbell has made a major impact, playing more minutes with Smith-Rivera on the sideline.  He has a team-high nine points on 4-of-5 shooting.
  • Jabril Trawick has been extremely aggressive on both ends. He is consistently putting his head down and attacking the paint and has seven points to go with a pair of steals.
  • Just like the Pirates, the Hoyas have looked shaky at the foul line, going 6-13 on freebies. Josh Smith, who has five points and six rebounds (four on the offensive end), has been the main culprit, making only 3-7 at the line.
  • Neither side is having much luck from 3-point range. Georgetown is 2-10 from distance, while Seton Hall has gone 1-6. When they met on Feb. 10, they combined for 16 triples.
