Myles Powell scored 34 points, Romaro Gill tied a career-high with eight blocks and No. 12 Seton Hall raced out to a big lead and beat Georgetown 78-71 Wednesday night.

The Pirates (17-5, 9-1) jumped out to a 16-0 lead, going 4 for 4 on 3-pointers. Powell, the second leading scorer in the Big East, hit his scoring average of 21 points by halftime.

Seton Hall’s Quincy McKnight was in the starting line-up and finished with eight points and a game-high 10 assists in 22 minutes. He was listed as day to day after leaving Saturday’s loss to Xavier early with a left knee injury.
