Seton Hall Vs. Georgetown Final Score: Pirates Strengthen Resume With Big Win Over Hoyas

The Seton Hall Pirates took a major step toward solidifying an NCAA Tournament bid on Tuesday, beating the Georgetown Hoyas 73-55 at the Prudential Center. The Pirates led by seven points halftime and kept pouring in the points while holding the Hoyas to just 27 points in the second half.

Jordan Theodore was the star, leading all scorers for 29 points. He was perfect from beyond the 3-point arc (5-for-5) and the free throw line (8-for-8), adding five assists and four rebounds. For the game, the Pirates shot 61 percent from the field and 61.5 percent behind the arc.

The Hoyas simply couldn't keep pace. Hollis Thompson had just eight points on the night, going 2-for-4 on his 3-point attempts, but 1-for-5 on everything else. The rest of Georgetown's starting five wasn't any better. Markel Starks was 1-for-9 from the field in just 26 minutes of play, while Jason Clark was largely a non-factor in scoring seven points.

The Pirates were a projected 11-seed in this week's tournament seedings by SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean. Nothing is assured at this point, but the team should be feeling pretty confident about its chances of heading to the Big Dance.
