It has been bugging me since minutes after Seton Hall’s post-Arkansas press conference: How well did the 2016-17 Pirates do compared to expectations?
Greenville, S.C. — As the depressing dust settles on Seton Hall’s 21-win season, its time to digest on a more rational level what exactly happened.
Seton Hall used a 17-2 second half run to take down Marquette, 82-76, in a season rubber match that sets the Hall up with Villanova Friday night in the Big East semifinals.
It won’t be official, but Seton Hall (19-10, 9-8) can essentially lock up their second consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament with a win at No. 13 Butler (23-6, 12-5) on Saturday.
NEWARK — For the second game in a row and for the nth time this season, Seton Hall notched a win in a crucial grind-it-out 62-59 slug fest with Georgetown that vastly increases the Hall’s NCAA odds.
