Powell scored 25 of his team-high 28 points in the second half and overtime, including a step-back, double-clutch 3-pointer at the end of regulation that appeared to win the game. After managing just 3 points on 1-of-4 shooting in the first half, Powell exploded in the second. His three-pointer tied the game at 67 with 1:17 remaining. On an inbounds play for Seton Hall, Cale passed to Quincy McKnight who found Powell in the corner. Powell dribbled in and then stepped back and drained one over Immanuel Quickley as the Seton Hall fans went wild.

In the overtime, Powell hit another 3-pointer to put the Pirates up 81-77, but Cale’s three was the difference in an epic win for the Pirates. McKnight blocked Johnson’s last shot for Kentucky. “A lot of effort, but we were ready,” Powell said. “We stayed together as a team and we got the job done.”
