Seton Hall’s All-Time vs. the Blue Demons:  DePaul leads, 22-5
Last Year’s Meetings: 
#18 DePaul 83, Seton Hall 80 – March 8, 2020 (BIG EAST Tournament semifinal)
#14 DePaul 86, Seton Hall 76 – February 9, 2020 (Walsh Gym)

Seton Hall and DePaul met three times last year with the Blue Demons coming out on top in all three contests.  As the year went on the games got increasingly closer, culminating with the Pirates’ three-point loss to DePaul in the BIG EAST Championship semifinals, 83-80.
Desiree Elmore poured in a career-high 26 points, but the Pirates fell to 18th-ranked DePaul  in a physical, back-and-forth offensive affair.  Undeterred by their nationally-recognized opponent, Seton Hall out-shot, made more field goals and out-rebounded DePaul, but came up one possession short.
Elmore was brilliant, scoring her career-best 26 points on an efficient 12-for-16 from the floor.  She also had a game-high 13 rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks in an effort for the ages.
DePaul is coming off a fantastic season that included a 28-5 overall record and 15-3 mark in BIG EAST play, and culminated in their third consecutive conference title.  The Blue Demons earned the automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, their 18th consecutive appearance, but COVID-19 prevented the postseason from continuing.
This season, DePaul remains one of the top teams in the country, and is picked to finish second in the 11-team BIG EAST.  Among those returning are Preseason All-BIG EAST selections Lexi Held and Sonya Morris, who averaged 15.4 and 15.6 points per game respectively last season.
DePaul enters the contest ranked No. 22 in the country with an 11-4 overall record and an 8-2 mark in conference play.  Their only two losses in BIG EAST games came at the hands of UConn.  Most recently, the Blue Demons defeated St. John’s on the road, 81-73, on Feb. 10.  Their last loss to anyone except UConn came over two months ago, Dec. 4 to Louisville.


Seton Hall will return to action on Wednesday, February 17 when it returns to Walsh Gym to host BIG EAST rival Georgetown.  Tip-time is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET.  The contest will be streamed live by the BIG EAST Digital Network and shown on FloHoops.com.  The game will also be available on the radio at 89.5 FM WSOU or wsou.net.
