Here are my predictions for the upcoming season.
ST. FRANCIS (N.Y.) Newark, N.J. W This is an easy win
VCU at Charleston, S.C. W This is going to be a very close game, but VCU has lost most of their team last year that made the Final Four, so I think Seton Hall has a good chance of winning.
Georgia Tech or Saint Joseph's at Charleston, S.C. L I am predicting that they will be playing Georgia Tech, which would be a very tough game to win.
TBD at Charleston, S.C.W With the loss in the second round, they would go into the losers bracket, which would mean a much earier opponent for the third round.
YALE Newark, N.J. W This is another easy win
SAINT PETER'S Newark, N.J. W. Again, an easy win.
AUBURN Newark, N.J. W Auburn is not a good team in the SEC, so this is a good matchup for Seton Hall to be able to win. Plus the game being home helps the Pirates.
NJIT Newark, N.J. W Another easy win
WAKE FOREST Newark, N.J. W Another game like Auburn, Wake Forest is a team rebuilding that will be in the bottom part of the ACC and this is definitely a winnable game for the Hall
MERCER W. Another easy win
Dayton at Dayton, Ohio L Considering they lost to Dayton at home last year, I do not seeing the Pirates winning at Dayton.
Longwood at Farmville, Va. W Another easy win
Syracuse * at Syracuse, N.Y. L The Big East schedule starts off very tough for the Pirates, having to go away to face a very tough Syracuse team who will be looking for revenge from last year's loss.
WEST VIRGINIA * Newark, N.J. L The first home Big East game is against another tough team
CONNECTICUT * Newark, N.J. L Facing the defending National Champions will be very hard.
Providence * at Providence, R.I. W Providence should be an easy win
DE PAUL * Newark, N.J. W Another easy win
USF * at Tampa, Fla. W USF should be decent this year, but Seton Hall should be able to win
Villanova * at Villanova, Pa. L against Villanova at Villanova will be very hard
NOTRE DAME * Newark, N.J. W This is the biggest win for the Pirates this year, Notre Dame will be a good team, but at home I think the Pirates can beat them.
LOUISVILLE * Newark, N.J. L Facing another tough team
Marquette * at Milwaukee, Wis. L Another very tough game
Connecticut * at Hartford, Conn. L Same as home game
Rutgers * at Piscataway, N.J. W Rutgers will be better this year, but will the intensity of the rivalry I think the Pirates can win this game
PITTSBURGH * Newark, N.J. L Another very tough game
ST. JOHN'S * Newark, N.J. W This will be an interesting game. St John's will not be as good as originally thought but will still be a good team and will be gunning for the Pirates after what happened last year. Despite all this I still think the Pirates can win
Cincinnati * at Cincinnati, Ohio L Another tough game for the Pirates
GEORGETOWN * Newark, N.J. L
RUTGERS * Newark, N.J. W Again, the rivalry will propel the Pirates to victory
DePaul * W Another easy DePaul win
