That sinking feeling is the adrenalin still draining after perfection against Marquette, a game in which almost everything went right right. Fans could be forgiven if they reveled in this one for at least a couple of days. Just like the good old days.
Forget that. Fans wouldn’t allow players to do it nor should fans do it. Road trip ahead.
Seton Hall University awaits. Players have to get on an airplane, head for Newark, NJ, hoping for none of the typical delays at airports en route to the Prudential Center.
Seton Hall is fresh off its first Big East success in four starts, a 74-64 win over South Florida at home Thursday. The Pirates lost at Marquette by only five points just over a week ago and at Pittsburgh by 14. They’re happy to be home, hoping to burst the bubble of a team they hope is still celebrating its best win of the season.
A test of maturity. Seton Hall will be pumped.
