Marquette shot 55.6 percent and sank four of eight 3-point attempts in the first half while holding Seton Hall to 9-for-30 shooting, including a 1-of-8 mark from beyond the arc but after the Golden Eagles used a 15-0 run to take a 22-8 lead, the Pirates went on a 15-0 run of their own to go up, 23-22, on a Rodriguez layup with 4:47 left.
