Pirates beat Hoyas at own game by pushing pace and drawing shooting fouls, scoring 48 first-half points...

NCAA Basketball: Georgetown at Seton Hall Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

The Georgetown Hoyas lost to the Seton Hall Pirates on Wednesday night at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. With the win, Seton Hall (6-6) jumps ahead of the Hoyas (5-7) in the BIG EAST standings. Myles Powell scored 30 for SHU, shooting only 8-20, but had 9 of his 10 free throws in the first half as the Hall led the Hoyas 48-35 at halftime and barely had to look back.

Powell not only stood his ground---he drew the charge. That’s the kind of night it was for the Pirates, who did everything right in drubbing the Hoyas 90-75 before a crowd of 7,000 at the Prudential Center.

Nzei had 18 points and nine rebounds, Cale scored 17 points, and Mamukelashvili stuffed the stat sheet with 11 points, eight rebounds and four assists. Seton Hall (15-9, 6-6 Big East) won its second straight, while the Hoyas (15-10, 5-7 Big East) lost their second in a row.

Seton Hall used a 12-0 run to take an 18-7 lead and it never looked back.

That big run features a vari ety of three-point plays. Mamukelashvili started it with 3-pointer. Nzei converted a 3-point play. Cale hit a 3-pointer and Powell caped it with three free throws after he was fouled on a shot from beyond the arc.

Seton Hall played with an edge from the start, beating Georgetown to 50-50 balls and answering every mini-run with a major spurt. On multiple occasions, Nzei out-hustled a few Hoyas for a loose ball, resulting in baskets.

Despite a late lull, Seton Hall’s first half was their best since the Maryland game, all things considered. The Hoyas aren’t nearly as good as their local DMV-area foes, but the Hall also put on an offensive clinic tonight and led by as many as 20 points. It was refreshing to see the team put multiple stretches of strong play together instead of allowing the Hoyas balance themselves early in the game like the Hall did to Creighton. Looking at the game as a whole, Seton Hall led by double digits for the final 34 minutes, which is the definition of commanding as two early threes in the second half calmed their nerves.

Ewing Q&A:

NB: According to episode 2 of his Sirius radio show, Ewing picks the jerseys each game and likes the teal because it reminds him of his freshman year...

... and this was too good to dismiss in anger:
