A career-best scoring performance from junior forward Kandice Green helped the Pirates to pull away with a 73-67 overtime win against William and Mary this afternoon in Williamsburg, Va.
Green scored 31 points in the contest that were matched with 23 rebounds, shooting 9-of-21 from the field and 13-of-18 from the charity stripe.
Freshman guard Ka-Deidre Simmons also finished the game in double-digits with 13 points.
The Pirates trailed by seven at halftime, but with a little over five minutes remaining in regulation, they found themselves down only a point, 55-54.
A three from Simmons evened the score at 61 with 2:58 to go before both teams would get another basket each to end the second half at 63-63.
Junior forward Whitney Wood, freshman guard Jazzmine Johnson and Green all scored in the overtime period to prevent the Tribe from coming within four.
Seton Hall returns to action this Wednesday when they begin Big East play in Queens, N.Y. to face No. 24 St. John’s.
