South Orange, NJ – The Seton Hall women improved to 11-­1 with a solid 74­-62 triumph over NJIT. The Friday evening contest at Walsh Gym saw the visiting Highlanders drop to 6­-7. The numbers of note.......

Possessions:
NJIT 66
Seton Hall 65

(on the moderate side tempo wise)

NJIT 94

Four Factors:

FT Rate: Seton Hall 27, NJIT 27
OREB Pct: NJIT 38, Seton Hall 35
TO Rate: NJIT 20, Seton Hall 11

What Seton Hall did well: Care for the ball. NJIT did not show pressure. Still, they mixed up half court defenses, and an 11% turnover rate, no matter the pressure or absence of it, is outstanding.

What NJIT did well: Compete and rebound. The Highlanders trailed by 16 at the half. They stayed with it, had a few second half runs, yet never severely threatened the Hall. They also had a slight edge in offensive rebounding percentage.

The leading scorers and efficiency:
NJIT: Alyssa Albanese 16 points, 16 efficiency
Seton Hall: Daisha Simmons 22 points, 19 efficiency

Game efficiency leader was Bra’Shey Ali with 21. The 6’0 junior forward scored 13 points while adding a game high 14 rebounds. One turnover against an assist capped off a very efficient performance.
