Anatomy of an Upset: Seton Hall Over UConn - The Triangle Blog
Now, the Pirates aren't strangers to zone defense. Going into the UConn game, they had played zone about a third of the time this season. (Seton Hall had been averaging 22 possessions of zone out of 66 total possessions per game, according to their Pomroy page). Against UConn, the Pirates doubled up on their zone defense, playing it on 45 out of UConn's 69 possessions, according to Synergy Sports.

On Seton Hall’s 24 man-to-man possessions, the Pirates gave up 29 points for a PPP 1.208.
