Hello, Newark: Seton Hall Opening Upper Deck For Syracuse Game

Chris Chambers

When the Orange travel to play the Seton Hall Pirates at the Prudential Center for the final time in conference play, they'll be opening up the upper level for the first time ever to accommodate all the Syracuse fans extra interest.

The Syracuse Orange are a hot ticket these days. With so many longtime Big East rivals about to hose us for the final time, everyone's pulling out the stops. Providence did a "black-out" which worked perfectly. Georgetown is doing all kinds of crazy s**t to keep us from buying up their tickets. And when the Orange travel to play the Seton Hall Pirates at the Prudential Center for the final time in conference play, they'll be opening up the upper level for the first time ever to accommodate all the Syracuse fans extra interest.

Due to an early sellout and a continuing demand for ticket purchasing opportunities, Seton Hall will open a section of the upper level at the Prudential Center for the Pirates game vs. Syracuse on Saturday, Feb. 16.

It is the first time since moving to the Prudential Center at the start of the 2007-08 season that Seton Hall has made the upper level available for seating. It's also the earliest Seton Hall has ever sold out a game since the Pirates' inaugural year in the building.

In other words, expect a crapton of Syracuse fans on hand.

In a way, it's a stark reminder of what Syracuse is giving up to join the ACC. Whether it's Providence, Philly, New York City or Newark, there always seems to be a road game coming up where local SU fans can pack the joint. Not sure we'll be able to say that as often when we're playing Wake Forest, Florida State and Georgia Tech. But...such is life.

Keep an eye on South Orange Juice for more game updates.
