After suffering their first loss of the season at nationally-ranked Wichita State, Seton Hall came home needing a bounce-back effort in more ways than one. Their opponents were as familiar as can be in the Saint Peter’s University Peacocks, a team they would meet for the 66th consecutive season.
The Pirates wanted to get back on the winning track, but also to avenge an overtime loss to their longtime foes from Jersey City last season, one in which Peacocks guard Desi Washington torched them for 33 points, including the game-winning three-pointer in the extra session.
Consider both things taken care of for the Pirates (8-1) as senior forward Brandon Mobley poured in 21 points along with seven rebounds and three blocked shots to lead Seton Hall to a 67-52 win on Sunday afternoon at the Prudential Center.
