In College Basketball,
the Big East Conference houses some of the most powerful and most successful programs in the sports history. One of the most
storied programs of them all is Seton Hall University, a prominent program that has been bringing the stars of today and tomorrow
to campus for a long time at this point. You never know who is going to burst onto the scene next with a banner day, providing
plenty of incentive to head out to the stands and see if the Seton Hall Pirates have what it takes to make a big move up the
What Seton Hall legend was a member of the 1989 national Runner Up,
an NBA team and played in the Olympics?
Seton Hall legend Ramón Ramos was an integral part of the 1989 Pirate team,
which goes down as one of the greatest teams in school history. After leaving Seton Hall, Ramos played for Puerto Rico in
the Summer Games in Seoul, South Korea. Though he was undrafted, he was signed by the Portland Trail Blazers in 1989, though
his NBA career was cut short tragically when he was critically injured in a car accident following a Blazers game. Ramos is
still one of the most beloved Seton Hall basketball players to ever don a Pirates jersey.
Seton Hall Pirates are no strangers to postseason play, and have one of the most storied postseason traditions of any major
program. Before P.J. Carlesimo took over the Seton Hall Men's Basketball program in 1982, the Pirates had only had a few NIT
Tournament appearances in the school's history. Though he inherited a struggling team, Coach Carlesimo, began to turn around
the culture of Seton Hall into one of the finest runs in recent memory. By 1988, the Pirates made the NCAA Tournament, and
the following year, the Pirates played in one of the most memorable championship games of all time.
At the Kingdome,
in Seattle, two incredibly entertaining and talented teams matched up for the title – P.J. Carlesimo's Seton Hall Pirates
and Steve Fishers's Michigan Wolverines. The Wolverines would end up winning by one point in overtime, but the Seton Hall
Pirates had erased years of disappointment and obscurity to become one of the hottest programs in the country. The Pirates
have made the tournament seven times since this historic game, though the 1989 Tournament run is still the moment that this
team is trying to replicate.
The Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey is a great place
to watch a basketball game, and enthusiastic Seton Hall Pirates students will be making their way into the stands in large
numbers this year. When the Pirates are in the middle of an epic battle that has all the makings of a classic, you'll understand
loud and clear what has local fans so excited, as this is a program that is always in the middle of one intense game or another
as they look to shoot their way to another unbelievable season.
