The win enabled the Golden Eagles (19-6, 10-3 Big East) to hold onto first place in the conference with their fourth win in the last five outings. The Pirates (13-14, 2-12) dropped below the .500 mark for the first time this season — their worst league mark in 29 years.

Marquette went on a 17-0 run over a 5:38 span of the second half, right after Seton Hall grabbed a 33-32 lead. The Golden Eagles used theirs size advantage to take control, with Devante Gardner (18 points) scoring eight during that span.

Blue is averaging nearly 16 points per game since scoring his career best 30 points in a win against South Florida Jan. 28.

Marquette outrebounded Seton Hall by a 43-24 margin.

Fuquan Edwin had 14 points and Aaron Cosby 11 for Seton Hall.
