Isaiah Whitehead wants this win. Has grabbed the last two available rebounds, blocked a Mo Watson layup, hit four straight free throws to ice it. Twenty-four points, 12 rebounds, six assists.

Khadeen Carrington has made big play after big play tonight for Seton Hall. Finish in the lane to give the Pirates the lead, then deflected Creighton's baseline inbounds pass the following possession. Twenty-five points.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Cole Huff is putting on a show for Creighton right now. Twenty-four points with 16 minutes still remaining. Hit five 3-pointers in the first half, but is now scoring on pull-ups and at the rim.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Really strong first half for Seton Hall -- Pirates are up 39-30 on Creighton. Mo Watson really struggled, going 2-for-9 from the field. Cole Huff keeping Creighton in the game: five 3-pointers. Eight guys have already scored for Seton Hall, and they're getting good minutes from their bench.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Final game of the night: Seton Hall vs. Creighton. Pirates playing mostly for seeding at this point. They were a 7-seed in Joe Lunardi's most recent bracket, but a run the next couple days could obviously push them higher.
