The Pirates have played well offensively, averaging 82 points per game. The team is shooting 47 percent from the field and 39 percent from three-point range. They scored 84 points against the Cyclones in their last game and will need another solid effort on Sunday.

Seton Hall has also played well defensively, holding opponents to 65.5 points per game. The team gave up 76 points in their last game and will need to do a much better job on defense if they want to leave Iowa with the win.
Cyclones Going For Third Win In Five GamesThe Cyclones managed to bounce back from their loss to Seton Hall with a win over Kansas City in their last game. They will be trying to pick up their second win in a row and third win in their last five games when they play their rematch with the Pirates.
