Three things to watch
1. Delgado is dominating
Angel Delgado has picked up right where he left off from last season. The sophomore's run of late has been one of the best from a Seton Hall big man in some time. Delgado has had a double-double in six consecutive games, including 11 points and 11 rebounds in the victory over Marquette. The last Pirate to do that was Eddie Griffin during the 2000-01 season. Griffin recorded a double-double in 10 straight games as a freshman.
Delgado is also tied for 12th in the nation with seven double-doubles this season and tied for 23rd in the nation with 10.2 rebounds. Those 10.2 boards lead the Big East conference. The star forward has started in 28 straight games for the Pirates and finished all but one of them with at least seven rebounds. He has been as consistent as it gets in college basketball.
2. Defense has been key to SHU’s winning streak
On the defensive side of the ball, Ismael Sanogo and Derrick Gordon have really stood out for Seton Hall this season. Sanogo is the only Big East player that ranks in the top-15 in the conference in rebounds, blocks and steals. His overall improvement and presence in the paint have made it difficult on opposing guards. Gordon's perimeter defense opposing guards has also been impressive.
The Pirate defense ranks second in the Big East averaging 7.7 steals per game and has forced at least 10 turnovers in every game this season. Seton Hall forced 18 Marquette turnovers in their conference opening win.
3. DePaul has won three straight against Seton Hall
Yes, DePaul has lost four of their last five contests this season, but it has not stopped them before against the Pirates. The Blue Demons have won three straight games against The Hall including a 64-60 win that spoiled a career-high 19 point and 19 rebound performance from Delgado last season at The Rock. Also, that one win during this 1-5 stretch for DePaul was a blowout win over then-20th ranked George Washington.
Lately, the Blue Demons have had the Pirates' number and will look to spoil The Hall's Big East home opener. If Seton Hall wins, they will start the conference season 2-0 for the second straight season. The program has not done that since the 1998-99 and 1999-00 seasons.
