Jamel Jackson, Men's Basketball
Sophomore guard Jamel Jackson scored 40 points off the bench as the Seton Hall men's basketball team shattered a number of single-game records in a 134-107 triumph over VMI on Saturday. Jackson broke the Seton Hall single-game record by hitting 12 three-pointers, previously held by Shaheen Holloway, and scored his points on 14-of-17 shooting. Jackson is also the first player to score 40 points in a game since Terry Dehere notched 41 against St. John's on February 17, 1993. Jackson was three treys shy of tying the NCAA's single-game mark.
