Big East Basketball: Seton Hall and St. John's Continue Tournament Action

The 2-0 Seton Hall Pirates will continue their run in the Charleston Classic tonight as they face off against the St. Joseph's Hawks. Both teams will be playing in the second of a back-to-back as the Hawks are coming off a 66-53 win over Georgia Tech and the Pirates are coming off a 69-54 victory against the Virginia Commonwealth Rams, led by sophomore Fuquan Edwin.   

Playing 35 minutes, hitting 6-of-8 from the floor and 4-of-5 from downtown, Edwin was the best player on the court tonight finishing with 19pts/9reb/3stl/blk.

The 3-1 St. John's Red Storm will also play a tournament game for the second consecutive night against the Texas A&M Aggies in the 2K Sports Classic at New York. Both the Red Storm and Aggies lost last night, to Arizona and Mississippi State, respectively. The Red Storm played tough, but ultimately could not handle the perimeter shooting of Arizona. 

St. John's attacked the Arizona Wildcats with a lot of toughness, rebounding around 75% of their misses. But it wasn't quite enough. Arizona was hot from the outside early and late, hitting 50% of their 28 perimeter attempts (they were 11 for 30 inside the arc - 37%).
