Seton Hall must dig deep to avoid another embarrassment when they visit top-ranked Villanova at the Pavilion on Monday night.
It seems like Seton Hall is doing a lot of “for the first time in X years…” things this season and they’ve just added another to the list. For the first time since 2007-08 when a tough, versatile Brian Laing averaged 18.6 ppg and 6.9 rpg, a Pirate player has earned conference first-team honors.
If you agreed with my take last week that similarities existed between Seton Hall’s trip to Providence this season and their game at the Dunk last year, then we’re probably on the same page regarding some of the context of the Hall’s pending clash with No. 4 Villanova on Wednesday night.
In the midst of a seven-game winning streak and now sniffing around the Associated Press Top 25 poll, Seton Hall (12-2, 2-0) travels to the hallowed on-campus halls of the Pavilion on Wednesday night for a grueling litmus test against No. 11 Villanova (12-2, 2-0).
