GAME RECAP

Seton Hall came out hot in the first half shooting 61% from the field and 54% from deep. Because of their hot shooting, the Pirates built a 10 point lead by halftime. NC State shot a poor 3-8 from the free throw line which helped the Seton Hall generate their lead.

The first ten minute of the second half was all NC State. The Wolfpack brought the Pirate lead to just four point. This was largely in part to the play of junior guard Torin Dorn. Dorn scored 13 of his 18 during this run.

Another player who performed well for the Wolfpack was senior guard Allerick Freeman. Truthfully, he was probably the best player on the court in the game. Freeman shot lights out scoring 36 points on 12 of 19 shooting.

One of NC State’s best players, Omar Yurtseven, was in foul trouble for nearly the entire game. In fact, he fouled out with about five minutes left in the game. He had only two points and two rebounds in the game. His absence played a huge role in the loss to the Pirates.

But, this run didn’t last long, the Pirates rebuilt the lead they had lost by bringing the lead back to nine with about 3 minutes left in the game.

Senior guard Khadeen Carrington scored 26 points and brought down 4 rebounds with 3 assists.

Bench play and free throws were the keys to this ballgame. In fact, Seton Hall’s bench outscored NC State’s 30-15. This was especially crucial because of the loss of Yurtseven throughout the game.

Free throws told the story as well. The Wolfpack shot only 59% from the line shooting 16-27 free throws. Meanwhile, the Pirates shot 80%, making 31-39.

Seton Hall pulled away late and defeated the NC State Wolfpack 94-83.

Hi my name is Daniel Plocher and I am a junior at Wisconsin Lutheran College. I am the Editor-in-Chief of our student newspaper and love writing for Armchair. I was raised in California, however I love all Detroit sports. My family is really weird because one side of the family is all Detroit and Michigan fans, and the other side is huge into Wisconsin sports and Michigan St fans. We are literally a family divided by sports. Because of this, I cheer for the Brewers and the Bucks to ease a bit of tension. I mainly write for Armchair Tigers, but I also write some pieces for my other fandoms as well.
