Regardless of whether he picks us or not, to be in the mix with that group of schools after being so bad for so long is huge. There were a lot of people on twitter that were very surprised.

They're pretty decent. They play in the new Big East (UConn, Nova, Marquette, Creighton, etc....mostly east-of-the-Misssissippi private Catholic basketball schools...plus UConn). Located in Newark, NJ, they made the NCAA championship game in 1989 (lost to Michigan by 1pt in OT). They've made the "big dance" the last 4 years in a row and probably would have made it again in 2020 if there had been a tournament (they were 21-9 and tied for 1st in the Big East going into their conference tournament): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seton_Hal ... basketball

I am aware of Seton Hall's BB pedigree to the extent that they were associated with formidable opponents and were often seen on the printed out brackets of the NCAA tourney. I had no idea what their nickname or mascot was.

Maybe we can get a home and home..... :lol:
