No. 10 Seton Hall will attempt to build on a pair of significant milestones when it opens a three-game homestand against Big East Conference rival Providence on Wednesday.
Player of the year candidate Myles Powell became the fifth player in Seton Hall history to reach 2,000 points when he scored 29 in an 82-79 victory over St. John's on Saturday. It helped the Pirates (14-4) extend their winning streak to eight games and improve to 6-0 in the Big East for the first time in school history.
Third-place Providence (11-8, 4-2) will attempt to get back on track after losing two of three, the most recent a 78-74 loss at Creighton on Saturday despite guard David Duke's career-high 36 points.
