The Pirates are in!

Despite the NCAA declaring that Seton Hall was their fifth team out, they received a # 1 seed in the National Invitational Tournament and will take on the Stony Brook Seawolves (22-9, 14-2) on Tuesday night (7:15) at Walsh Gymnasium. The Seawolves won the regular season America East championship, before falling to Vermont in the tournament championship. If Seton Hall advances, they will face the winner of Mississippi State and UMass in the second round. St. Joe's (2), along with future Big East member, UCF (6), Drexel (3) and Northern Iowa (7) make up the bottom half of Seton Hall's region. The Pirates could potentially host three home games, before the Final Four is held at Madison Square Garden.

After drawing an attendance of just 1,829 in their last NIT appearance against Texas Tech, Seton Hall has decided that it will host the game at historic, Walsh Gymnasium. About 2600 can be packed into Seton Hall's on-campus arena, which will hold it's first non-exhibition mens game in over a decade. The game falls during Seton Hall's spring break, however, if the students decide to show up, the Pirates could potentially have a raucous home court advantage on their hands.

As always, Let's Go Hall.
