The first thing Eugene Teague did when he walked off the floor, was grab a bottle of Gatorade.
Seton Hall’s senior big man pounded two bottles of the drink before he even left the locker room to walk to the interview room. Opened one, downed it in about three gulps and then reached for another and did the same. This was how Teague celebrated the Pirates’ buzzer-beating victory over No. 3 and top-seeded Villanova Thursday in the Big East Tournament quarterfinal. And to everyone around him, there was no more fitting scene.

"There were times when they got real physical with JayVaughn (Pinkston) in there, rather than worrying about Teague getting in foul trouble. He finished with four. There was a play there at the end — he might have had his fifth — but they called it on somebody else. It was just smart on their part on how Teague played."
