Seton Hall Pirates
Seton Hall is up to #20 at KenPom. The Pirates are starting to come out from under the radar and onto the national scene. And a win at Hinkle Fieldhouse will bring them to the forefront of the Big East Championship discussion.
A week after the No. 1 team in the country visited Butler University, Seton Hall is trying to win in a place where Villanova could not.
At 2–0 in the conference, Seton Hall has lost its two non-conference games this season by a combined seven points. In the conference, the Pirates beat Creighton at home and then edged St. John’s, also at home, despite the flu going around the team.
The Pirates are feeling better for this game in Butler, their first road test of the conference season. One problem they have had this season is turnovers. Seton Hall averages 14 per game. In a way, it’s no problem because this team is constantly attacking and putting pressure on the defense. But on the road, that can hurt a team. Seton Hall will win this game if it can limit those turnovers without holding anything back on offense.
Butler comes in at #37 at KenPom, about three points worse than Seton Hall, though Hinkle Fieldhouse will take care of that.
The Bulldogs lost by seven at Xavier earlier this week and now have this home game to avoid an 0–2 week, while Seton Hall is just playing its only game on Saturday.
Kelan Martin and Desi Rodriguez will be the big matchup in this game. Both seniors lead their team in scoring and have similar sorts of moves and ways of scoring. Martin is a better outside shooter but Rodriguez has a more varied game. Whomever gets the best of that matchup will set the tone for his team.
