Seton Hall just strengthened its case in its bid for an NCAA Tournament berth.
Myles Powell scored 34 points to lead the Pirates (17-12, 8-9 Big East) to a 73-64 upset win over No. 16 Marquette Wednesday night at Prudential Center in Newark.
Seton Hall, which likely will need a couple more wins to make the Big Dance, faces Villanova on Saturday to close out the regular season. Sam Hauser scored 25 points for the Golden Eagles (23-7, 12-5).
