Seton Hall beats St John due to....SH is next

Postby Xavier2005 » Mon Dec 31, 2018 1:17 pm

Although Seton Hall beat the undefeated St Johns, it appears to have happened due to a bad call by a ref in the last seconds of the game ...when St Johns was ahead. Regardless, X now plays Seton Hall which has very poor overall team stats, so far. Should be another toss up game for X. I think home court could be the deciding factor. If X scores at least 80 points , i think X wins.

Seton Hall has the 2nd worst 3 pt % in the BE - DePaul is the worst.
But they have shot pretty well from 3 in the games they have won - averaging 36% vs. only 18% in the their 3 losses.
They have played a tougher OOC schedule - UK, Maryland, the team in Hookerville and Nebraska.
I don't think X has any gimmes this year at home.

Seton Hall and then Marquette.....a chance to prove X is better than their record....an 0-2 performance will mean the season is basically over?

After watching St Johns put a beat down on MU I can’t imagine us being able to run and keep up with St Johns. They are really good even if they have Mullins as a coach.

if they shoot it from deep the way they did last night, they can beat anyone.

I can't believe that we are favored tonight by 3.5 points. I guess Vegas hasn't watched this team this year.

Tease SH and hope X wins by 7 or less
