Ah, Newark. The city so nice they named it...Newark. The Syracuse Orange head to this shining beacon of New Jersey metropolitan lifestyle one last time to take on the Seton Hall Pirates. Let's get in, get out and go home.
Date: Saturday, February 16th
Time: 8:00 p.m. EST
Location: Prudential Center, Newark, NJ
TV: SNY, Big East Network, Time Warner Cable Sports
Announcers: Mike Corey, Jim Spanarkel
Radio: Syracuse IMG Network/WAER 88.3/WTKW 99.5 FM/ESPN 97.7 FM/Sirius 112/XM 197
Records: Syracuse 20-4 (8-3), Seton Hall 13-12 (2-10)
Rankings: Syracuse (No. 6/7), Seton Hall (UNR)
Seton Hall's Last Game: The Pirates' losing streak moved to six thanks to a 57-55 loss to Rutgers. So that didn't go well.
Series: 62 games, Syracuse leads 46-16.
Current Streak: 1, Syracuse.
Boeheim's Record Vs: 45-14
Last Game: Fab Melo dropped 12 points and pulled down seven rebounds to go with 10 blocks in Syracuse's 75-49 decimation of the Pirates.
SHU Last Year: Finishing the season 21-13 (8-10), the Pirates made it to the 2nd round of the BET and then hosted two games in the NIT before losing to UMass.
SHU Coach - Kevin Willard (3rd): Willard is the latest in a long line of Great Coach Hopes for the Pirates. So far, so good. Last year he didn't mince words and said Syracuse "kicked our ass." Our goal is to make Kevin Willard curse again.
"Fear Me, I've Killed Hundreds Of Timelords": Fuquan Edwin is the team's leading scorer at 17 PPG, but he's been struggling in recent games (along with everyone else). He and Aaron Cosby are the three-point specialists.
Fun Fact: The Prudential Center is opening up their top deck for the first time to accommodate all of the Syracuse fans who want to witness this rivalry (probably) come to an end.
Unexciting Reason To Watch: Seton Hall is probably the worst team we've played in a while.
Exciting Reason To Watch: Oh, I'm sorry, were you too busy counting Syracuse's recent wins? Cause I'm pretty sure you shouldn't be doing that.
