Seton Hall Preview

Former Irish great Pat Garrity will be in attendance tomorrow. Garrity retired in September after a solid ten year NBA career. He averaged 7.3 points a game in the pros with a three point average near 40%. At Notre Dame, Garrity scored 23.2 points a contest in his senior season and was the 1997 Big East Player of the Year. Congratulations to Pat for a great career and I certainly look forward to his being honored at halftime.

Luke Harangody made the Big East Honor Roll last week with his 27 point and 15 rebound average last week.

Seton Hall is 9-6 and 0-3 in the Big East. They have only one win in their last six contests. Should be easy, right? Not quite. Villanova found out that the Pirates still have some game, pulling out a close one in overtime. The Irish play well at home and following last week's loss to St. John's, I would expect us to be well prepared.

Stat Sheet Preview

Ken Pomeroy gives us an 89% chance at winning. This is our last good chance at a blowout until mid-February, so let's put this one away.

"Well prepared," eh? It's halftime and our defensive "strategy" consists of hoping Seton Hall goes cold. At least we have the second half to fix things.

Well, we needed most of that second half to fix things, but we got it done. Very good effort on the offensive glass to keep balls alive and get rebounds. The key, perhaps, was the T after Seton Hall made the two steals-and-layups. Took away their momentum.
