Gibbs, Teague Lift Hall Past Rutgers

Gibbs, Teague Lift Hall Past Rutgers
BY JASON GUERETTE

When Seton Hall meets Rutgers on the basketball court, the end result is usually a close game, with a little bit of spice added in. The names change through the years, but the rivalry between the two New Jersey schools stays the same.

It was no different on Sunday night, as Sterling Gibbs scored a career-high 27 points and Eugene Teague added a big double-double of 16 points and 16 rebounds, with the Pirates holding off a late charge and coming away with a 77-71 win at the Louis Brown Athletic Center in Piscataway.

The win was the first on the road this season for Seton Hall. It was also their first victory over their in-state rivals since 2012, a span of three straight games.

It wasn’t easy, however. Up 72-61 after a Teague dunk, Rutgers went on a 10-0 run to cut the Pirate lead down to one. But the Hall made their free throws down the stretch, and made the plays they needed to make to improve to 6-3 on the season.

“I was really happy with the way we battled,” head coach Kevin Willard said after the win. “We got off to a good start, which really helped us. We hadn’t won a road game in a while. We have a tendency every once in a while when things go bad to let them go real bad, especially on the road. That was what I was most impressed with- when the lead slipped away, (we) kind of found a way to fight back.”
