Seton Hall received 57 AP Top 25 votes in this week's poll, up from just five last week, putting the Pirates at 30th in the country. The Hall has also pulled in 28 votes in the USA Today Coaches Poll, good for 34th.

St. John's slid into the Top 25 at No. 24 while Villanova sits at No. 7 and Butler is up to No. 15. Georgetown is just ahead of Seton Hall with 62 votes and Creighton picked up seven after losing to Tulsa and then beating Nebraska yesterday. The Hall's opponent tomorrow night, Wichita State, dropped from No. 8 to No. 11.

Seton Hall and St. John's also collected some individual accolades when Isaiah Whitehead was named Big East Rookie of the Week and D`Angelo Harrison was tapped as Player of the Week earlier today. Whitehead's 37 points and 7 assists this week did not go without recognition and Harrison's 40 points over two games deserved rewarding.
