SETON HALL PIRATES NEWS
Seton Hall didn't have to sweat Selection Sunday, not after a leaked bracket ended all the suspense.But you have to give the Pirates credit for playing along when CBS announced them as the No. 6 seed in the Midwest, facing Gonzaga.Does this look like a team that knew exactly what its seed was for close to two hours?You also have to give head coach Kevin Willard for making maximum...
Seton Hall has officially punched their ticket to NCAA Tournament, where they will face Gonzaga in the first round in Denver, Colorado.
The ramifications of CBS’ drawn-out and extended two-hour NCAA Tourament Selection Show led to A) a leaked bracket on Twitter, B) lower ratings, and C) teams knowing who and where they were playing in advance of the official announcement. One of those teams was Seton Hall. After winning the Big East Tournament on Saturday, it knew it was going to be in thanks to the automatic...
Coming out of the closet and being an openly gay athlete is becoming less and less of a story.

DENVER (AP) Maybe the most telling part of Derrick Gordon's story is that it hasn't really been a story this season. When sixth-seeded Seton Hall (25-8) takes the court Thursday against Gonzaga (26-7), Gordon will become the first openly gay player to play in the NCAA Tournament. That news is nothing more than a tidbit for most of the Pirates, who got over whatever initial awkwardness...

We all love to dissect our bracket when we get it on Selection Sunday, and then as results pour in on Thursday in the round of 64. We saw Wichita State pulverize Arizona Thursday night in Providence with a typically ruthless and focused defensive effort, the kind of masterpiece we’re accustomed to seeing from a Gregg Marshall team in March. (Call him Gregg March-all, amirite?)...
