Hoya Prospectus: Recap: Seton Hall 73, Georgetown 55
The Hoyas came into the game leading the conference in effective field goal defense, having allowed a season-high 55% eFG against Pitt. So what Seton Hall did tonight [71% eFG] should be recognized as extraordinary. Only two other teams have managed to hit the 70% level against JT3's Georgetown Hoyas: the Ohio Bobcats and the Baylor Bears.

"They played very well and there are a lot of things that we need to do better. I don't think that there is anything that happened today that we can't get better at."
