Seton Hall earns No. 19 ranking in latest AP Top 25

New, 20 comments

First ranking in two years has many wondering if the Hall is back.

Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

The only time Seton Hall has been ranked since the 2000-01 season was a brief one-week stretch in January of 2012 that included a loss at South Florida in the first game since entering the top-25.

That is no longer.

The Hall picked up enough votes in today's poll for a No. 19 spot, their highest ranking since January of 2001. The Big East has three teams ranked in the AP's poll after Georgetown drops out following a loss to Xavier. Butler is at No. 28 in the poll.
