Creighton falls to No. 23 Seton Hall in BIG EAST opener

Creighton basketball led for most of the game, but couldn't hold on down the stretch as the Jays fell 90-84 to No. 23 Seton Hall in their BIG EAST Conference opener.

Seton Hall's Angel Delgado and Desi Rodriguez played a big hand in the Pirates' win, as Delgado finished with 18 points and 14 rebounds and Rodriguez with 23 points and 4 rebounds. 

The Jays had a turnover issue down the stretch and Seton Hall continuously capitalized, finishing with 22 points off turnovers to Creighton's 9. 

Four players finished in double-digits for Creighton with Martin Krampelj (23 pts.), Marcus Foster (14 pts.), Khyri Thomas (13 pts.) and Davion Mintz (10 pts.). 

Up next for the Jays is a New Year's Eve showdown at the Centurylink Center with Providence at 1:30 p.m.
