Seton Hall Pirates Basketball Schedule in 2014-15
The Seton Hall Pirates are ready to take what is theirs on the
basketball court this season as they face off with some of the toughest opponents in the NCAA basketball world. The Pirates
have some serious talent on the roster this season, and the team is looking to make some major waves in their conference and
on a national level. The Pirates play in the Big East, one of the top conferences in college basketball, and it is home to
some of the top teams in the nation on a regular basis. The Pirates were able to post a.500 record in 2013-14, but they struggled
in Big East play, winning just six of their 18 matchups with conference foes. The Pirates know that they're going to have
to play a lot better against their Big East opponents this season, especially at home. The home crowd will look to give the
Pirates a big boost this season when they take on some of their toughest opponents at the Prudential Center.
will certainly look to elevate their level of play when the Villanova Wildcats come to town this season. The Wildcats are
coming off a 2013-14 campaign in which they were able to win 29 games and only lost two Big East matchups. The Pirates would
love to show that they're a much-improved squad this season by taking down this conference powerhouse in front of their home
fans, and you can be there to see them try to make it happen.
The Pirates will have another tough game on their hands
this season when the Georgetown Hoyas take to the court at the Prudential Center. The Hoyas are coming off a bit of a down
year in 2013-14, but they're often one of the best teams in the conference and will be looking to rebound this year. The Hoyas
have a storied hoops program that has seen some of the best college players ever come through the ranks, and the Pirates would
like nothing more than to send them home with a loss. Check out the rest of the schedule to see other matchups facing the
Pirates this season.
Seton Hall Pirates Basketball History
The Seton Hall Pirates have been playing college
hoops sine 1903, giving them a long history, but the team did not experience any major success until the 1980s. The 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. Overall, 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 as they
hope to shoot their way to another title bout. Great players like Bob Davies, Richie Regan, Walter Dukes and Frank Saul represents
just a sliver of the unbelievable players who have dominated for the Seton Hall. 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 conference standings.
Sure, we know that you

Center to see the Seton Hall Pirates and get right into the thick of the rim-rocking excitement. There's nothing like being
in the stands when the game is on the line, so ditch the couch, step away from the smart phone and get ready to see the Pirates
from a completely different level. The Pirates are definitely not going to go quietly into the night in the Big East, no matter
who stands in their way, giving you plenty of reasons to keep an eye on the schedule to make sure that you don't miss a shot
of the action.
