Long Island University Blackbirds (2-2) @ Seton Hall Pirates (3-0) 8PM Pre-Game Notes

LIU @ Seton Hall, 8PM
Prudential Center, Newark, NJ
Television: Hall Pass
Radio: 770 WABC

Projected starting five:
G-Eugene Harvey
G-Jeremy Hazell
SF-Robert Mitchell
PF-Herb Pope
C-John Garcia

Despite Theodore flourishing off the bench last Friday against Cornell, it'll be interesting to see if he'll be moved into the starting lineup.  It's my belief that Gonzo will continue to start Harvey at PG, especially against the weaker teams coming up in the schedule: LIU, NJIT and Hartford.  It's obvious that team will need significant contributions from both Harvey and Theodore throughout the season and starting the senior against weaker competition could do volumes for his confidence.

If Gonzalez makes the switch at PG this early in the season, whether it's the right move or not, it's possible that Harvey could lose his focus.  Time will tell how the point guard situation will work itself out, however, two talented point guards on the roster isn't necessarily a bad problem for a coach to have.
