Myles Powell leads No. 13 Seton Hall past Florida A&M 87-51
Sat Nov 23, 2019 4:47 PM

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Myles Powell yelled “smile a little bit” to Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard as the star player was on his way out of the media room.

No chance.

Powell scored 23 points and Jared Rhoden had 10 points and 12 rebounds, leading No. 13 Seton Hall to an 87-51 victory over winless Florida A&M on Saturday.

The Pirates pulled away from the Rattlers after a sleepy week of practice and a shaky start, and Willard wasn’t pleased with his team's performance in front of a crowd of 9,656 at the Prudential Center.

“We had a great crowd coming for a 12 o’clock game,” he said. “We kind of slept walked through 20 minutes of a game. Our kids play hard, they’re fun to watch, but you can’t come out and sleepwalk when people come out and watch it. It’s unacceptable.”

Quincy McKnight had 14 points and five assists for Seton Hall (4-1), which led by 18 before carrying a 36-24 advantage into the break.

Willard is “just saying that as the team that we want to be that we got to practice to get better, not just to get through it,” Powell said, “and he said all week that's all we were doing, was just trying to get through practice and just get it over with. He said it shows today.

“The score - I don’t feel as though we were playing our best basketball.”

Rod Melton Jr. led Florida A&M with 12 points. M.J. Randolph had 11 points and nine rebounds.

Florida A&M (0-5) pulled within single digits several times in the second half. Melton’s basket on a break made it 43-35 with 16:08 left.

After Nasir Core scored to trim Seton Hall’s lead to 47-38 with 13:57 left, the Pirates responded with a 15-1 run. Powell made a layup to make it 62-39 with 9:25 remaining.

BIG PICTURE

Seton Hall: The Pirates continue to look the part of a Top 25 team despite their lulls against a lowly opponent. The next stretch will be a good litmus test for March - they head to the Bahamas for the Battle 4 Atlantis to play No. 11 Oregon and potentially No. 8 Gonzaga. No. 5 North Carolina, Alabama, Iowa State and Michigan are the other Power Five teams in the event.

Florida A&M: Coming off a 12-19 season, the Rattlers are still looking for their first win of the season, and the upcoming schedule doesn’t look very good. They visit Kansas State on Dec. 2 and No. 20 Tennessee on Dec. 4.

POLL IMPLICATIONS

With this being the only game of the week for Seton Hall, the Pirates should stay about where they are in the Top 25.

SANDRO SITS

Willard benched Sandro Mamukelashvili for the second half. Willard said he wasn’t playing well.

ON THE ROAD AGAIN

The Pirates won’t play at home again for nearly a month, when they host No. 6 Maryland on Dec. 19.

UP NEXT

Seton Hall: Takes on No. 11 Oregon in the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas on Wednesday.

Florida A&M: At Kansas State on Dec. 2.
