- The Pirates flourished against the Red Storm defense with six 3-pointers and a 51.9 percent mark from the field.
- Desi Rodriguez was near unstoppable with 19 points on only eight shots. He leads Seton Hall in scoring.
- Their elite defense was evident early with four steals and nine St. John's turnovers. If this continues, a road win could be in store today.
- The Johnnies have struggled from deep so far with zero makes. That accounts to, you guessed it, a total of zero percent. They also hold a 42.9 percent mark from the field, displaying their offensive struggles throughout the first half of this game.
- Their nine turnovers compared to zero assists must be worrisome for for Chris Mullin and his staff. Their lack of ball movement has accounted for their 22 points in the first half.
- Somehow St. John's has found a way to only muster 10 rebounds in the first half. Facing Angel Delgado and a formidable rebounding Seton Hall team, this must improve if the Red Storm will come back from the now 14 point deficit.
