The Pirates return to action after the long and painful, 9-month layoff. Tonight, marks the 3rd season that South Orange Juice (formerly, GonzoBall) has covered your Seton Hall Pirates and we thank you, the readers, for making it all possible.
More importantly, tonight marks the the first game that Jordan Theodore and Herb Pope will play as seniors at Seton Hall University. Quite simply, this team will go as far as Theodore and Pope take them. As a team, the players felt they deserved better than a pre-season ranking of 13 from both coaches and writers. That belief means little and nothing is deserved. We've heard stories throughout the offseason of improved attitudes, adding bulk and muscle, trimming fat, stories of outstanding performances in summer leagues and World University Games, but tonight, that all goes out the window.
Tonight, the games count. From here on out, every performance will be judged by an addition to the team's left column, or their right column. Welcome back Pirate fans, we're glad to have you with us. As always, Let's go Hall!
