Opening Line Rutgers (-1.5)
The Pirates will attempt to snap their six-game losing streak by winning for the fifth consecutive time at the friendly confines of the RAC on Wednesday evening. The opponent is an up-and-down Scarlet Knights team, that has shown more down-than-up, but hold a number of impressive wins under their belt. Though the two teams' records may suggest mediocrity, I'd expect to see each team's very best effort -- although, that probably includes a slow start for Seton Hall at this point.
Many of the players in tonight's battle of New Jersey are friendly off the court, but tonight, as Jordan Theodore told you, it's for all the bragging rights (and, girls). If the Pirates win, we can continue playing what-if in regards to their tournament chances, while doing the same for Rutgers (NIT). If the Pirates lose, their next game of some significance will likely come on the Tuesday that the Big East Tournament begins. It's come to this.
As always, Let's Go Hall!
