A look at the statistics from Seton Hall's win over Providence on Wednesday.

SOUTH ORANGE, NJ - The Seton Hall women scored an impressive 72-56 victory over Providence, Wednesday at Walsh Gym. The Pirates improved to 4-9 in conference and are 9-17 on the season. First order, the tempo free numbers:

The numbers show how impressive the Hall performance was. Above average figures on both offense and defense. On the season, in Big East play, Seton Hall is a 78 efficiency and 94 on defense. The margin (offense minus defense) is in the 'red' at -16. Tonight they were an impressive +26.

On their end the Friars are -23 efficiency margin with a 77 offensively and 100 on defense. The numbers are little surprise for the 2-10 (conference) Friars.

Shooting atones for sins. We have said it many times before and it can be true: Outstanding marksmanship can offset a deficiency in another area. Seton Hall turned the ball over 23 times and had an extremely high 35% turnover rate. From the field the Pirates shot a 67% eFG mark, hitting 9 of 21 from three point range. The Pirates also enjoyed a 48-31% advantage in offensive rebounding percentage.

General observations. Seton Hall got out to a 33-21 lead at the half and was basically in control. The Pirates did a very good job of getting in the lane and, if challenged, reversing the ball to the perimeter. The guards led the way with Brittany Morris hitting a game high 27 points, including six treys. Ka-Deidre Simmons shot 8 of 9 en route to a 21 point night.

"Our one on one defense was not very good," said Providence coach Susan Robinson Fruchtl. "When they got penetration our help defense out on the perimetrer was not very effective either."

Alexandra Masenko was quiet scoring wise up front (2 points) but effective for the Hall with a game high 10 rebounds and three blocks.

Seton Hall changed up defenses and did a good job keeping Providence off balance. The first half saw Providence hit nine field goals with all but three outside the lane. While the Friars did have four double digit scorers, none of them shot at least 50% from the field nor did they have a consistent game. Rather, all four showed some moments but later disappeared. Leading scorer Brianna Edwards hit for a dozen points. Senior guard Symone Roberts scored 11 points and had probably the best overall game for the visitors. Roberts added a game high seven assists against just two turnovers. Again, her performance came despite defenders keying on her due to the absence of a post up game by the Friars.

Providence is now 2-10 in conference and 7-18 overall. Friars shot 19 of 52 (37%) from two point range further showing their lack of a consistent inside presence.
