Seton Hall Men’s Basketball Looking Strong prior to Garden State Hardwood Classic

The Seton Hall Men’s Basketball team (5-4) have had some very impressive outings thus far in a very young 2022-23 College Basketball Season. After a tough 91-65 loss to Number Nine Kansas on December 1 the Pirates returned to their winning ways with a 82-55 victory over Lincoln University on December 7.

Playing inside of the historic Walsh Gymnasium, Seton Hall saw five scoring in double figures, as the team had a strong second half performance to help propel them to the victory. Helping to lead the way for the Pirates was graduate student KC Ndefo who had 6-of-7 shotting from the floor. Ndefo also added seven reboudns and blocked six shots.

Senior Al-Amir Dawes and Tyrese Samuel both had 16 points in what were impressive outings for the team. Samuel also had a career-high 14 rebounds for his second double-double of the season.

Lincoln had two players in double figures as Korey Williams had 15 points and Ethan Garita followed with 10 points.
