Seton Hall 34, St. John's 30 Halftime Score: Jeremy Hazell's 12 Points Helps Pirates Take Lead

Senior forward Jeremy Hazell has scored a game-best 12 points to help the Seton Hall Pirates earn a 34-30 halftime lead against the No. 15 St. John's Red Storm in a Big East Conference contest at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Hazell nailed three 3-pointers for the Pirates (11-17, 5-11), while teammate junior guard Jordan Theodore has chipped in with 10 points.

Senior guard Dwight Hardy has a team-best 10 points for the Red Storm (19-9, 11-5 Big East), who are trying to hold onto to their fourth-place spot in the Big East standings. If St. John's can win its next two games -- the Johnnies host the South Florida Bulls in their regular-season finale -- then it will earn a double-bye in the upcoming Big East Tournament, March 8-12.

Statically, St. John's is 11-of-26 (42.3 percent) from the floor and 2-of-6 (33.3) from behind the 3-point line. Seton Hall is 12 for 20 (60.0) on field goals and 7 for 11 on 3-pointers. The Pirates outrebounded the Red Storm, 13-12. However, SHU has 12 turnovers to St. John's seven.
