Around the Hall: SHU Preview of LIU Contest, Giving Thanks, SHU-SPC Rematch On the Islands?

The Seton Hall preview of Saturday's contest against LIU can be read in it's entirety here. A few noteworthy items to consider:
-Seton Hall's game vs. LIU marks the first of nine straight home games for the Pirates
-The Pirates are 3-0 for a third straight year, but have not won their first two road games since the 2001-02 season.
-LIU improved to 2-2 on the early season with a 77-71 victory over Saint Peter's in Brooklyn on Tuesday. Senior Jaytornah Wisseh scored a game-high 28 points on 9-for-12 shooting in the victory.
-This is will be only the 30th meeting all-time between Seton Hall and LIU, but the first since 1994.
-The Pirates have won the last three meetings and have scored over 100 points in the last two including a 110-72 victory on Dec. 2, 1994.
Setonia gives thanks to Seton Hall with an interesting take on comparing the Pirates roster to Thanksgiving dinner, very thoughtful guys, check it out:
Hazell: Definitely turkey. At the center of it all, goes with everything, best served piping hot (12 of 25), less good when served cold (0 of 10)

Stix: Mashed potatoes. Classic blue collar, roll up your sleeves, middle America. Oh you just finished gathering rebounds in a coal mine? Here, have some mashed potatoes. Love that guy.
Andy Katz's Daily Word takes a look at the field for next year's Paradise Jam:
The Paradise Jam field is set for the Virgin Islands with Alabama, Clemson, Iowa, Long Beach State, Old Dominion, Seton Hall, Saint Peter's and Xavier. Might not be the chance of an elite title game like this season's Tennessee-Purdue final, but that's still a decent field. 
Who knows, maybe we'll see the sequel of the "50 second thriller" with Seton Hall and St. Peter's in next year's final.  Let's just hope these two squads don't put in a repeat performance of this year's first 39+ minutes.
