Seton Hall will be headed back to New Jersey with a sense of disappointment, following Sunday night’s 66-52 loss to Stanford to end the Advocare Invitational with a lackluster 1-2 record.
With ten minutes remaining in the first half, the Pirates had their largest lead of the night, 10 points, and looked to be en route to a comfortable win.
Seton Hall went cold, and allowed the Cardinal to tie the game at 26 heading into the half behind 18 combined points from Dorian Pickens and Reid Travis.
The second half saw more of the same for Seton Hall, as the Pirates saw Stanford go on a 17-7 run out of the break to get their lead to 10. The lead would eventually reach as many as 17 points. Pickens and Travis combined for 19 more points in the second half, as well.
Seton Hall also struggled mightily from beyond the arc. After the Pirates missed their first 13 three-pointers of the night, Khadeen Carrington finally drained one with just over two minutes to play. Carrington led the Pirates with 20 points.
Seton Hall will return home for a game against Columbia on Thursday night before heading to Pearl Harbor to face Hawaii and Cal.
