NEED TO KNOW: Buoyed by their victory against West Virginia last Sunday, the Bulls continue their homestand looking to string two victories together for the first time this season.
Seton Hall had a tough go of it last weekend, falling to Villanova before earning a draw with Georgetown. The Pirates are still looking for their first win in the Big East, losing both of its conference road games so far. Nikki Gross leads the Pirates with four goals, but they have been susceptible defensively, with starting goalkeeper Jennifer Pettigrew having given up almost two goals per game in eight starts this season.
That will be something Bulls forwards Noelle Pineiro and Chelsea Klotz will be looking to take advantage of. Pineiro scored her sixth goal of the season against West Virginia, and has the most goals by a Bulls player since Lindsey Brauer scored nine goals in 2006. Klotz has added three, but has been a force going forward, leading the Bulls with 28 shots, 17 of which have been on goal, this season.
