Men’s Basketball: Seton Hall Routs St. John’s
Jordan Theodore scored 16 points and dished out 10 assists to lead Seton Hall in a 94-64 rout of St. John’s on Tuesday night.
The Pirates (18-8, 7-7 Big East) made 15 of 24 from 3-point range, including their first nine attempts of the second half. The long-distance shooting helped Seton Hall turn a 40-28 halftime advantage into a laugher. Seton Hall finished shooting 62 percent from the floor (33 of 53).
The 30-point margin of victory tied the largest this season for the Pirates, who also defeated NJIT 78-48 on Dec. 6.
The Pirates got big production from three freshmen, as Aaron Cosby and Brandon Mobley scored 14 points each and Haralds Karlis added 13. Herb Pope added 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Pirates and Patrik Auda chipped in 12 points.
Moe Harkless led the Red Storm (10-16, 4-10) with 15 points and 11 rebounds.
