Seton Hall next up for the Hoyas

Glide Hoyas glide...

HOYANATION, are you ready? It's sink the Priate ship time! The Hoyas travel to New Jersey to play the Seton Hall Pirates. Seton Hall's last game resulted in a 62-57 loss to Cincinnati. Right now the Pirates projected to be in the NCAA Tournament field as of this writing according to ESPN’s Joe Lunardi, but it’s the Pirates who are really skating on thin ice. The Hall is one of the “last four in” and has a huge opportunity this week against Georgetown. I'm pretty sure the Hoyas are not going to let this happen Tuesday night.

On the other hand,the Hoyas have been playing solid basketball are ready to battle with Seton Hall. The Hoyas are coming a another "tough and solid" road win against Providence 63-53. Senior Jason Clark,Henry Sims and junior Hollis Thompson combined for 36 points.

Before the half ended the big talk from Coach John Thompson III was for his team to make their free throws. "We've got to make more," Thompson III said. "If we make our foul shots throughout the course of the game, not just at the end, then you're not as antsy coming down the stretch."

The Hoyas "defense" was tremendous and uplifting for Jabril Trawick coming off of the pine to shine with 12 points that was well needed in this low scoring affair with the Friars. "That is the best defensive team I've seen in a long, long time," Providence coach Ed Cooley said.

The Hoyas will keep this ship sailing to search and destroy the Pirate ship. I'm sure they'll be keying in on senior point guard and playmaker Jordan Theodore (15 pts. 6 assts.) and senior forward Herb Pope (15 pts.10 rbs.) These two play really good together know where each other is at all times on offense. Communication will be "key" for the Hoyas to break up this chemistry between these two Pirate players. "It will be done!" Hoya Saxa!
