NEWARK, NJ - With another win, Seton Hall marches its way towards, well, March Madness. It would be the Pirates first NCAA tournament appearance since 2006.

This time the Pirates downed Providence at the Prudential Center in Newark 70 to 52. For Seton Hall, this was its 7th win in the last 8 Big East games and the 20th win overall for the season, making it a milestone for a team that hasn't hit the 20 win mark in the regular season since 2003-04.

What was supposed to be a prime time match-up between two of the most elite guards in the country  turned into a one sided affair. Seton Hall's Isaiah Whitehead vs. Providence's Kris Dunn never materialized, as Dunn was lacking his normal energy due to not feeling well.

Whitehead ended up having one of the best all-around games of his college career finishing with 25 points and 9 assists.

"He makes everyone better," said Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard. "But he makes it very simple for them. He's matured and he's starting to understand what he means to this team both offensively and defensively."

Seton Hall is back home for their next game this Sunday, February 28, against nationally ranked Xavier.
