Seton Hall Pulls Off Upset Against No. 8 UConn
Jordan Theodore scored all 19 of his points in the second half and Seton Hall ended almost 11 years of frustration by stunning No. 8 Connecticut 75-63 on Tuesday night in coach Kevin Willard’s biggest win since taking over the program last season.
Herb Pope added 15 points, and Fuquan Edwin and Aaron Cosby had 12 apiece as the Pirates (13-2, 2-1 Big East) beat Connecticut (12-2, 2-1) for the first time since March 3, 2001 — a span of 11 games. The win also snapped the Huskies’ current seven-game overall winning streak.
Jeremy Lamb had 19 points for Connecticut, which was playing its final game without coach Jim Calhoun, who is serving a three-game NCAA suspension. Niels Giffey was the only other Huskie in double figures with 11.
