With only two games remaining, Seton Hall is still in search of their first Big East win, losing 62-39 to No. 18 Rutgers Uni­versity on Tuesday night.

The Pirates were led by senior guard Jasmine Crew with 20 points, three assists, and one steal.

Sophomore guard Brittany Morris add­ed 14 points and two steals on the game.

Head coach Anne Donovan expressed her concern after the Pirates' last game when she noted that the team puts itself "in a hole" in the first half.

With a 19-point offensive effort in the first half and a nine-point deficit at half­time, the Pirates put themselves in a deep hole from the start. The second half proved to be just as bad, as Rutgers came out of halftime and immediately launched a 21-4 scoring run run to take a 49-23 lead with just over 12 minutes to play in regulation.

The Pirates shot 90 percent from the free throw line on the night, compared to 68.8 percent on the season.

The Scarlet Knights were led by se­nior forward April Sykes who recorded 17 points and five rebounds.

Senior Khadijah Rushdan also added 15 points and 4 assists while junior Erica Wheeler finished with 11 points.

Rutgers forced 18 turnovers, and converted those turnovers into 31 points. The Scarlet Knights shot just 36.7 percent, while Seton Hall shot 35 percent in the loss.

Seton Hall will return to play against the University of Pittsburgh on Saturday, Feb. 25 at 2 p.m. at the Peterson Events Center.
