Jordan Theodore scored a career-high 29 points to lead Seton Hall to the signature win it needed for its NCAA tournament resume, a 73-55 victory over No. 9 Georgetown on Tuesday night.
The Pirates (19-9, 8-8 Big East) put on quite a shooting performance against one of the conference's best defensive teams. They shot 61.0 percent (25 for 41), the best against the Hoyas this season and only the third time any team shot 50 percent or better. Georgetown (20-6, 10-5) came in allowing 38.4 percent shooting this season.
Theodore made all five of his 3-point attempts to lead Seton Hall, which finished 8 of 13 (61.5 percent), and that came against a team that was allowing 27.6 percent from beyond the arc this season.
