Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.

Nothing like a porous Seton Hall defense to restore confidence in your shooting ability. Slump? What slump? How does 56% shooting sound?
Of course, Pitt’s rugged defenders could throw the Orange right back off their rhythm, where they have been for the better part of a month. But maybe — just maybe!! — this game will [...]

Big East Scoreboard Items Of Note

DePaul 84, Pitt 81
USF 74, Villanova 57 (at the Pavilion no less!)
Both Pitt and Nova are now 0-3 in conference play. In case you forgot, Pitt won the conference last year and was a 1 seed in the NCAAs. I know they lost some key guys from last year but Ashton Gibbs and four rocking [...]

Oh, what fun it is to ride…

How much fun was THAT!!!

I’ll stop just short of saying that was a “statement game” for SU, since it was Seton Hall and not, say, Louisville. But damn, what a thorough whuppin’ that was. Any time you take a conference opponent behind the woodshed like that, you know things are going right for you. I [...]


Who else feels like this:

I must admit I didn’t even see the game. I had it on DVR but heard the final score on the radio driving home around 9:15. (It was an accident: I live in Washington DC, and didn’t expect the local news station to report the score.) The first thing I did [...]

All I wish to say about the Seton Hall game

Sometimes your offense craps out on you and you have to figure out how to win anyway. Lessons can be learned against William and Mary etc.
Road wins are road wins.
Conference road wins are conference road wins. No matter how fugly.
[I refer you to this game at Miami in January 2003. SU shot 4-24 [...]

Big East Conference review, part 1

I did this a couple times in the past and people found it useful, so I’m going to get back on the horse and do it again. Here’s the concept:
Once it’s go time for conference play around the nation, I like to take a quick look at how the 16 teams in the Big East [...]

The view from Jersey City

A large chunk of the Cuse Country crew, most of whom are NYC-based, gathered at the Prudential Center to witness tonight’s victory over the Seton Hall Butt Pirates. I almost didn’t make it. Leaving Syracuse this afternoon, I got stuck in a miserable traffic situation. I-81 South was a mess, with hastily erected “Emergency Scene” [...]

It’s clobberin’ time!

So I pop over to My Yahoo to check my fantasy football team and behold the content that has arrived:

Halleluia and Hail Boeheim! The basketball schedule is complete! To quote a wise philosopher, “Let’s get it started in here.”
The full schedule can be found here. The highlights:
Coaches vs. Cancer in MSG on Nov 19/20. We [...]

Bring It

Thanks for the warmup game, Seton Hall. It’s very much appreciated. Anything you can do to get our outside shooters in a groove like last night (I believe we were 5-6 on threes for that key stretch of the 2nd half) will be helpful as we prepare to face tonight’s shot-blocking, elbow-wielding monstrosity. (Though that [...]

softest team in the Big East?

Giving up 100 points or more in a regulation college basketball game is a humiliating event. Or it should be at any rate. It’s an event so incredibly disheartening and improbable that it should be one of the rarest occasions in the sport. Any modicum of effort on defense by any reasonable collection of half-way [...]
