With the Big East title on the line, Seton Hall is at Creighton and Eckel is looking for big game from Myles Powell

Seton Hall at Creighton (-3.5), 2:30 p.m.

Seton Hall has led the Big East most of the season and now it comes down to the final game of the season with the regular-season title on the line.

The Pirates (21-8, 13-4) can win the title outright with a win on the road today. A loss would force a tie with Creighton (23-7, 12-5) and possible a three-way tie with Villanova.

Coming off a tough loss at The Rock to Villanova, The Hall will look to rebound and also get revenge for an 87-82 loss earlier this season to the Blue Jays.

For whatever reason Seton Hall has actually been as good on the road, maybe even better, than it is at home with wins at Butler, Villanova, Xavier and Marquette. The Pirates are also 43-18 in their last 51 games as underdog and 50-24 in their last 74 as a road underdog.

The Pick: Yes, I’m a bit of a homer for The Hall. But I still think they can win this game outright. Look for Myles Powell, who was held to 14 in the loss to ‘Nova and to 12 in the earlier loss to Creighton, to go off with a huge game. Take the Pirates and the points.
