No. 18 Seton Hall stuns No. 5 Butler in Hinkle Fieldhouse behind Myles Powell’s 29pts!
Seton Hall is the best team in the best conference in the country. Getting a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament is definitely in play.
WEDNESDAY'S GAMES TO WATCH:
Seton Hall at Butler
Kentucky at South Carolina
Indiana at Rutgers
Iowa State at Baylor
Auburn at Alabama
No. 18 Seton Hall rallies from a 10-point halftime deficit to win at No. 5 Butler, 78-70.
Butler loses for just the 2nd time over the last 10 seasons when it led by 10 points or more at halftime at home (now 60-2).
Seton Hall just went from down double digits on the road at halftime to one of the best defensive teams in college basketball to winning by eight.
This team never quits. What the Pirates just pulled off is nothing short of incredible.
Seton Hall has won its last 7 games, is 5-0 in the Big East and just won at fifth-ranked Butler. Dont care what the rankings say, that is one of the 10 best teams in the country. And in this wild year in college basketball, can ABSOLUTELY win the national championship
#5 Butler loses to #18 Seton Hall
#10 Kentucky loses to 7-loss unranked South Carolina
#25 Creighton loses to 6-loss unranked Georgetown
#16 Wichita State loses to 6-loss unranked Temple
#4 Auburn loses to 7-loss unranked Alabama
And that’s just TONIGHT! 🤯🤯🤯
The night isn’t over yet in college hoops but Rutgers is now 29th in the KenPom rankings with the 8th best defensive efficiency in the country. Not too shabby. 4-1 against top 40 foes. Seton Hall victory was massive as they’ve won 7 straight and beat top 5 Butler on road tonight.
This week so far ...
No. 3 Duke lost to 9-7 Clemson
No. 4 Auburn lost to 9-7 Alabama
No. 10 Kentucky lost to 9-7 South Carolina
(And No. 5 Butler lost, but to a good Seton Hall team.)
It’s only Wednesday.
"I keep telling everybody: He’s the best player in America. It’s scary"
"We didn’t have eyes looking up [at the U4], it was just lets get our breath and do what we have to do to win this game"
Seton Hall's road upset of No. 5 Butler was historic:
No. 4 Auburn trails Alabama 36-27 at half
No. 5 Butler falls to No. 18 Seton Hall
No. 10 Kentucky falls to South Carolina
With a #WVU win Saturday, expect another decent jump in the polls.
Just fully catching up on Seton Hall now. I watched the first 12 minutes and the last 5 minutes live -- really multitasking tonight. I heard Kevin's postgame and I'll have a breakdown up first thing tomorrow.
No sleep on this beat, not this season.
Nothing was going Kevin Willard's way. The seat was hot, and the calls for his dismissal ever louder.
Seton Hall stuck by its coach. Now look at the Pirates.
on how Willard got better, and the Hall with him.
Last time Seton Hall and Rutgers both made NCAA Tournament? 1991. Also last time Rutgers went dancing. Seems very possible it happens this March. #shbb #rhoops
Rutgers beat a ranked Seton Hall and Penn State, beat Wisconsin who dominated Indiana and has beat two ranked teams back to back..
Oh and the just dominated Indiana @Zane_Clodfelter

The Big East’s two undefeated teams square off tonight, as Butler welcomes Seton Hall to Hinkle Fieldhouse. https://t.co/0FFw9ibkFU
#Butler fell to Seton Hall 78-70 for their first Big East loss of the season. Some foul trouble and a balanced Seton Hall attack ultimately resulted in a Butler loss. We go beyond the box score.
What the hell is happening in college hoops tonight? South Carolina beats UK, Seton Hall over Butler on the road, Rutgers continues to Rutgers, Temple over Wichita State, Marquette throttles X, Lafayette over Colgate, Bama over Auburn.
Trust nothing this season...
Seton Hall is playing better offensively than every other team that Butler has faced this year.
Seton Hall beat No. 5 Butler tonight. Myles Powell dropped 29. This could for real be a thing that happens. https://t.co/P34zgPsOUV
