    Seton Hall Pirates
    Righting The Ship

    How we got here...

    The high point of the Big East era for Seton Hall came when P. J. Carlesimo was hired in 1982 and the team began playing in the Meadowlands Arena. By 1988, Carlesimo led the Pirates to the school's first NCAA tournament appearance, and in 1989, he led the Hall to an unexpected tournament run to the NCAA Championship game, where they were defeated by Michigan in overtime.

    Success under Carlesimo continued with a Big East Tournament Championship and an Elite Eight appearance in 1991, a regular season Big East Championship and Sweet Sixteen appearance in 1992, and Big East Regular Season and Big East Tournament Championships in 1993.

    Carlesimo left to coach in the NBA following the 1993–94 season, but Seton Hall returned to the Sweet Sixteen in 2000 guided by coach Tommy Amaker, and appeared in the NCAA tournament in 2004 and 2006 coached by Louis Orr.

    In 2006–07, Bobby Gonzalez was hired to lead the Pirates, which moved its home games into the Prudential Center in 2007.

    College Hoops Daily

    '07-08 Season Preview: College hoops upon us once again
    After losing many of their top players, can Florida three-peat as National champs?

    Well folks, basketball bliss in all it's glory is finally here, as the college season opens it's doors and welcomes us back for another season of non-stop, heart wrenching but oh-so satisfying drama of college hoops!

    The 2007-08 season will be getting underway with one question on people's minds... can the Florida Gators win their third consecutive championship? After losing the likes of Joakim Noah, Al Horford, and Corey Brewer to the NBA, they still have sophomore Marreese Speights and two highly touted freshmen in Chandler Parsons and Nick Calathes..

    Another top headline to watch for is the bevy of ultra-talented incoming freshmen and what kind of impact they will have on the college ranks.

    Some of these recruits include: Michael Beasley (Kansas St), Derrick Rose (Memphis), OJ Mayo (USC), James Harden (Arizona St), Kevin Love (UCLA), DeAndre Jordan (Texas A&M), Blake Griffin (Oklahoma), and Eric Gordon (Indiana), among many, many more.

    Taking a look at the team rankings, Roy Williams' North Carolina leads the pack, followed by UCLA, Memphis, and Kansas. Nowhere on this list, however, is the two-time champion Florida Gators, which will only add fuel to the fire in their attempts to make another run at the title. Here's a look at the top 25 and how they rank..

    Preseason Top 25
    1 North Carolina
    2 UCLA
    3 Memphis
    4 Kansas
    5 Georgetown
    6 Louisville
    7 Tennessee
    8 Michigan State
    9 Indiana
    10 Washington State
    11 Marquette
    12 Oregon
    13 Duke
    14 Gonzaga
    15 Texas
    16 Texas A&M
    17 Arizona
    18 USC
    19 Arkansas
    20 Kentucky
    21 North Carolina State
    22 Pittsburgh
    23 Stanford
    24 Southern Illinois
    25 Kansas State

    The team that can win it all.. would most likely be the Tar Heels of North Carolina. No surprise given their top rank, but they have all the pieces to get the job done and a hall-of-fame coach. Led by juniors Tyler Hansbrough, Danny Green, and sophomore point guard Ty Lawson, this team possesses an overall poise and demeanor that the basketball experts love.

    The sleeper (outside of top 10) to watch for.. is Stanford. They have a dominant inside game, led by twin 7-footers Brook and Robin Lopez, that can give teams all sorts of fits.

    The player of the year.. will be DJ Augustin of Texas. The sophomore point guard does everything and more for the Longhorns and is a true floor general. He's an excellent pass-first guard with the ability to score buckets in a hurry. Look for Texas to be a contender in March.

    Preseason All-American Team
    G DJ Augustin, So. (Texas)
    G Darren Collison, Jr. (UCLA)
    G/F Chris Douglas-Roberts, Jr. (Memphis)
    F Tyler Hansbrough, Jr. (UNC)
    C Roy Hibbert, Sr. (Georgetown)

    Thanks bro. First game vs Duke and they had guys like lance thomas, Gerald Henderson, and Kyle Singler. Should have that update up soon. Low scoring so maybe gotta boost the halfback lengths
