Nick Dent led all scorers nailing 25-points for GSC.
A typically very tough Seton Hill couldn't find the basket early on.
The score doesn't adequately tell the tale of how close the Pioneers came to blowing what was a blow-out early on.
The Pioneers led by 18 twice in the first half, ending that stanza 40-27.
The Griffins out-shot and outscored GSC in the second period as the Pioneer lead was slowly chipped away.
Glenville was held to scoring only two points during a three minute stretch near the end.
Seton Hill closed the initial deficit to within five points in the home stretch. Had the clock not run out on them it looked like they were going to make a successful come-back victory.
Marcus Catney (2) shoots for a pair in
traffic. He had 15 points on the night.
Gabe Gibbs (5) held his own against Seton Hill's
big man. He made several big plays including a dunk
that brought Pioneer fans to their feet in appreciation.
Marcus Catney, Gabe Gibbs and Nick Dent kept the Pioneers
alive offensively and defensively.
