Syracuse - Seton Hall Preview

Syracuse students agree: The Hall still isn't great.
Syracuse is currently the #4 team in the nation and boasts the best rebounder in the league. They are also shooting significantly better than the first half of the season. Kris Joseph is a big reason why. He is shooting 59.5% and scoring an average of 23.3 points over his last three games. Not only that but Rick Jackson is a rebounding and blocking machine. Rick Jackson is also still leading the league in rebounds with 11.7rpg. Syracuse is also 15-0 (2-0) on the season currently, coming off a win against #15 Notre Dame last Saturday. Conversely, Seton Hall has lost four of their last five games and have a record of 7-8 (1-2) on the year. The Hall's problem last season was not scoring, but no defense and poor rebounding. This year, their scoring has dipped, and the defense hasn't gotten much better. Sadly their leading scorer Jaremy Hazell has not only faced health problems with a broken wrist, but he was shot just before Christmas. While he will be fine, he remains unable to play. In his absence senior Jeff Robinson is leading the charge with 12.2ppg. Herb Pope is also back and healthy, averaging 8.2rpg. But that will still probably not be enough against Syracuse's great offense, and even better defense. Seton Hall has lost the last four to the Orange and ten out of 12. The Hall has also only won one game out of their last 14 against ranked opponents. Syracuse has also had a week to prepare for this game, so I don't think any surprises will occur in this one. The upset alert/trap game factor is very low in this one. Look for Syracuse to beat The Hall in Newark by 22.
BONUS: Hate buttons!
