Opening Line (Georgetown -2)

Despite failing to compete against Cincinnati for the better part of action Saturday, Seton Hall still controls their own NCAA Tournament destiny. In fact, many believe the Pirates can still punch a ticket regardless of what plays out during the Big East Tournament. The catch? They must win out and that begins tonight, at The Rock against the 9th ranked team in the nation, the Georgetown Hoyas.

The Pirates have been a tough out at home this year, only falling twice (ND, LOU) in consecutive losses during their six-game slide. Slow starts have been the Pirates achilles heel in the majority of their losses this season and it goes without saying, that's absolutely not an option tonight. Oh, and Herb Pope got tatted up for the game.

As always, Let's Go Hall!
