Seton Hall Pirats
Myles Powell scored 31 points and Seton Hall snapped a four-game losing streak with a 65–63 victory over Providence this week. It was just Seton Hall’s second win in its last seven games.
The other win was a one-point victory over Butler, in New Jersey. Powell had 31 in that game, too, making 13 of his 15 free throw attempts.
The junior guard from Trenton is nearly all left over from last season’s team that featured three key seniors and advanced in the NCAA Tournament before falling to Kansas on the first weekend. Powell is currently second among Big East scorers at 21.7 points per game.
Powell is also a left-hander, like Butler’s best player and leading scorer Kamar Baldwin, who is averaging 17.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game this season.
But Baldwin’s big season hasn’t been enough for Butler, which is in danger of missing the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2014, when Brandon Miller took over for Brad Stevens in his only year as the Head Coach.
Paul Jorgensen and Sean McDermott were supposed to round out a trio with Baldwin that featured experience and a diverse offensive repertoire. Instead, those two have been underwhelming, despite both averaging double-figures (barely).
It’s getting late for Butler to pad its resume for an at-large bid, which means it may have to win the Big East Tournament to get a Tournament bid. It isn’t impossible but I can’t help but fell the Bulldogs have underachieved this season.

Free Seton Hall Pirates vs. Butler Bulldogs NCAAB Prediction: Butler earns the split at home.
Butler is certainly the better team and is always great at home. Seton Hall has shown the grit that Butler hasn’t, though. I would be wary of laying more than four or five with Butler and you’ll certainly have to if you want to back the home side.
