The Seton Hall Pirates look to extend a three-game winning streak Tuesday night at home against the NJIT Highlanders

Seton Hall (6-1) has not lost since falling to Northwestern in the final game of the Charleston Classic. The Pirates handled Yale and St. Peters, then steamrolled Auburn, 81-59, in the Big East/SEC Challenge on Friday. Herb Pope notched his sixth double-double of the season with 23 points and 12 rebounds, and Jordan Theodore added 10 assists.

NJIT (3-4) enters the game reeling from an 84-44 loss to Georgetown. Ryan Woods (16 points) and Isaiah Wilkerson (15) combined for 31 of NJIT's 44 points. Woods leads the Highlanders, who return four starts from last season's 15-15 team and are predicted to finish third in the six-team Great West Conference, with 15.6 points and 5.0 rebounds per game.
