That is the story of our season. But here are some details on a stretch of games that I would like to forget.
Hazell made a sudden and brilliant return on January 12th vs. Depaul. He scored 23 points and it looked like he never lost a step. Seton Hall won 78 to 67. Our next game was a rather embarrasing performance vs. Pittsburgh. We lost by a score of 74-53. Hazell was bottled up scoring just 9 points. JROB had a decent 3pt shooting day at 2-5. Our next two games were perhaps the most heart-breaking of the season. At a game I attended, Seton Hall took on Georgetown in front of a packed house at The Rock. We made a great run in the 2nd half to take a lead but when Pope fouled out with 2 minutes left we struggled and lost by 5 points. Hazell had 15pts but he was just 1-7 from 3. My theory is that he took a shooting lesson from JROB before the game. Nonetheless, our next game was vs. Rutgers at home. We came out flat and were embarrased. We lost by only 6 points but it was pathetic. Hazell was again bottled up scoring just 15 points on 2-11 from 3pt shooting. JROB was 2-7. I still don't understand why Hazell decided to take shooting lessons from JROB for two games? Our next two games were awesome. We went to the Carrier Dome and destroyed Syracuse beating them 90-68. Hazell scored 28 points to lead 5 Pirates in double figures. WE then went on to beat Providence at home. We were now 4-6 in the conference and on a 2 game winning streak. But another offensive joke put an end to those highs. Our ensuing game vs. WVU we scored just 46 points and lost. Our next game home vs. Uconn, we blew a 14 point second half lead and lost by 2. This was the most pathetic 11 minutes I have ever seen. We made ZERO field goals in 11 minutes. We were a joke. Embarrasing. I am just going to stop here because I am getting upset. The last 7 games will be tomorrow
