Record: 21-11

Quick Notes: Seton Hall enters the NCAA Tournament 21-11 overall and finished 10-8 in the Big East conference.  The Pirates lost 75-74 to Butler in the 2018 Big East Tournament.

A balanced team, the Pirates have four players currently averaging double figures in scoring.  6-foot-6 forward Desi Rodriquez leads the team in scoring (17.4 ppg) and is shooting 50% from the field and 38% from three-point range. 

The banger in the post is senior Angel Delgado. At 6-foot-10 and 245 pounds, Delgado is averaging 13.3 points and a team-high 11.6 rebounds.  Despite his size, Delgado isn't much of a shot blocker with just 22 blocks in 32 games. 

The team's backcourt is strong.  

Khadeem Carrington runs the show, as he's averaging 14.9 points and a team-high 4.5 assists per game.  Sophomore guard Myles Powell is the team's best shooter, as he's knocked down 89 three-pointers and is averaging 14.9 points per game.

Reserve To Watch

G/F Myles Cale: The 6-foot-5 wing has started the last three games, averaging 9.0 points and 48% shooting while playing 33.7 minutes a night.  The freshman will play a big role for the Pirates.
