The Wildcats take on Shaka Smart's VCU Rams in the "championship rounds" of the Legends Classic on ESPN2 a week prior to traveling to Madison Square Garden to face Illinois in the Jimmy V Classic on ESPN. Jay Wright's team is poised to have a big year and will now play VCU, Illinois, Michigan/Oregon, La Salle, Saint Joseph's, Temple, and Syracuse in their non-conference schedule. Wow.
Nice job by the college basketball guys on the network with compiling this list of schools who have produced NBA talent since 1987. Seton Hall is tied at 63rd with Oregon State and Brigham Young. Rutgers is tied with Morehead State.
The title says it all (the story is a couple weeks old). This is good for hoops in New Jersey.
At the bottom of the above article, Kevin McNamara reports that the Big East is looking to have another New Year's Eve marathon where all ten teams play in five games back-to-back. Seton Hall played at Providence last New Year's Eve.
Seton Hall's Big East brothers won their first game on their summer trip to Brazil.
This doesn't seem to bode well for basketball-only schools like Seton Hall. The NCAA's board of directors will vote today on rules regarding how schools vote for college legislation.
Seton Hall recruiting targets of note: 2015 Steve Enoch (St. Thomas More, Conn.), 2016s Rawle Alkins (Christ the King, N.Y.), Temple Gibbs Jr. (Seton Hall Prep, N.J.), Omar Spellman (MacDuffie School, Mass.), 2017 Tremont Waters (South Kent, Conn.) -- all on Team NYC/Tri-State.
