Seton Hall 82, Georgetown 67: Ray Floriani's Photo Essay

NEWARK, NJ --­ For Georgetown, it was the ’lost week.’ Besides cruel weather, the New York metropolitan area was not too kind for the visitors. After being dismantled by St. John’s on Sunday, the Hoyas were handled 82-­65 by Seton Hall at the Prudential Center on Thursday.

What is in a number? Excuse coach John Thompson III if ’23’ leaves him in a cold sweat. Rysheed Jordan of St. John’s wore that number, came out and buried a few perimeter shots to spark the Red Storm and adoring fans, and the rout was on. At the Rock, Fuquan Edwin, another 23, hit a few early, getting the Hall off and rolling.

As we wind down and the schedule gets busier, Seton Hall had some opportunity to get a few days off. What a wonder a rest can do especially at this time. A break to refresh the mind, body and game. A three-day off stretch was followed by an very good practice on Monday before Georgetown. A day later, the Pirates had a three hour workout and “our best practice this season,” per coach Kevin Willard.

The results were out there for all to see in an excellent forty-minute showing on Thursday evening.
