Wagner comes into the game at 2-0 and returns to the court after a COVID-induced hiatus. The Seahawks have not played since November 13th after multiple Tier 1 personnel received positive covid tests. After postponing three games Wagner may face some rust but are the preseason favorite to win the Northeast Conference. Coach Bashir Mason’s squad is led by Alex Morales and Elijah Ford.
Seton Hall is off to their best start since the 2017-2018 season when they began the season 9-1. They will continue to try and find their defensive groove without their best perimeter defender Myles Cale. The Pirates will look to improve their three-point shooting which they have struggled with during the early going.
Additional Notes: Seton Hall 26-6 all-time versus Wagner and 20-1 at home. The Pirates bench has been strong outscoring opponents reserves 187-86 through their first five contests.
