Isaiah Whitehead came to Seton Hall with a repute as a supernatural descent talent.

Through 5 games, a McDonald’s All-American from Coney Island has shown of flashes of his measureless playmaking and scoring ability, though his best impulse as a Pirate came on a defensive finish Saturday afternoon.

With Seton Hall sticking to a two-point lead and George Washington’s Kethan Savage pushing for a game-tying basket, Whitehead fast changed into position and drew a game-sealing assign with reduction than a second remaining.

“The play that Isaiah done was overtly a biggest play of a game,” youth ensure Sterling Gibbs pronounced after Seton Hall’s hard-earned 58-54 feat over George Washington during Prudential Center. “That only shows how many of a leader he is.”

Saturday’s dirty feat was by distant Seton Hall’s many considerable after defeating 4 mid-major opponents. Considering a competition — George Washington (3-2) reached a NCAA Tournament final year and was picked to finish second in a imperishable Atlantic 10 — and their ability to shake off an disproportionate descent display (38 percent from a margin and only 2-of-14 from 3-point range), it was also a many satisfying.

“A lot of people were observant we weren’t that good, only given who we played,” pronounced Whitehead, who had 15 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and dual blocks as Seton Hall softened to 5-0, a best start given going 8-0 to start a 2009-10 season. “It wasn’t a fault. We showed currently we can contend with any team, basically, that comes to us. It only shows how mature we are.”

It was a large day for a heavily-hyped Seton Hall beginner class, that showed toughness and maturity, out-executing George Washington in a slow-paced competition that fit a Colonials’ plodding style.

The final 13 Pirates points came from a youngsters — a initial 5 from Whitehead to snap a 43-all tie with 6:53 left and a final 8 from reduction heralded freshmen forwards Angel Delgado and Desi Rodriguez. That done adult for a detriment of comparison brazen Brandon Mobley, who fouled out with 14 points and 2:06 to go. Rodriguez, Whitehead’s high propagandize teammate during Lincoln, gave Seton Hall a lead for good, tipping in a skip with 1:50 left.

“You demeanour during a programs these guys came from, they’re all come from winning programs,” Willard said. “They make winning plays. It’s easier to learn winning players.”

Delgado, who notched his initial career double-double of 10 points and 10 rebounds, missed dual giveaway throws with 5 seconds remaining, giving George Washington a possibility to force overtime. Savage went coast-to-coast, pushing all a approach into a lane. Whitehead, remembering that Savage had left all a approach to a edge a whole afternoon, stood his belligerent instead of going out to plea him.

“It was only instinct,” Whitehead said. “He was going down a lane, out of control. we only took it.”
