Seton Hall Vs. DePaul: Pirates Look To Boost Tourney Resume In Regular Season Finale

Looking to pad an NCAA tournament resume which likely lands them squarely on the bubble, the Seton Hall Pirates conclude the regular season on Saturday evening against the DePaul Blue Demons. (6 p.m., MSG)

As a No. 10 seed in SB Nation's latest issue of Bracketology, Seton Hall could use a win to improve its standing with the NCAA tournament committee, especially after falling at Rutgers on Saturday.

The overtime letdown at Rutgers followed a crucial victory against Georgetown. The Pirates open a 10-point first half lead against Rutgers and put five players in double figures, led by Jordan Theodore's 17 points and nine assists, but missed a desperation heave at the end of regulation before getting outscored 12-7 in the extra session.

DePaul has dropped nine straight decisions. The Blue Demons are paced by Cleveland Melvin's 17.5 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.
