The assumption is there that the Pirates are going to just get run out of the gym by the superior Orange in this game. We know that Seton Hall looked downright dreadful yesterday against the South Florida Bulls, winning in overtime 46-42. The Pirates were killed on the glass all game long, and by just looking at the box score, it’s anyone’s guess how they actually pulled out the victory. Brian Oliver, Fuquan Edwin, and Aaron Cosby all played at least 40 minutes. Still, the oddsmakers almost always overblow situations like this, especially in the big time conference tournaments where they games show up on national television. The Orange really aren’t in great shape right now either. Remember that they dropped four of their last five coming into this tournament. Head Coach Jim Boeheim would love to come up with a good result in this tourney to get some moment rolling towards March Madness, but he knows that it isn’t the end of the world if this one isn’t a work of art. In spite of the fact that it really makes no sense whatsoever, we still think that the Pirates are the right play to make, if for nothing else, to fade the court of public opinion on Wednesday afternoon.
