Seton Hall at UConn Game Preview

Why Seton Hall Will Win

The Pirates continue to play the best defense in the Big East.

They’re not just good at coming up with stops a home, bug they’re been great on the road allowing 72 points or fewer in each of the last five road trips. They force a ton of turnovers, allow just 41% from the field, and they’re good at converting on the mistakes for fast break points.

That all happened in the first meeting with UConn – a 67-66 win – and this should be kept low scoring again.

Seton Hall is 2-11 when allowing teams to hit 42% from the field, UConn is 14-1 when making 42% of its shots, and …

What’s Going To Happen

UConn will have to win without hitting 42%.

It’s great at home, and it’ll get the defense going to come up with enough stops to keep the close, but the offense will have problems from the outside and Seton Hall will be strong from the line.

The Huskies will come up big late, they’ll win on the boards, and unlike the first meeting, they’ll be okay from three.
