Five Questions: Seton Hall

The next team in my Five Questions series is Seton Hall University, and features fellow "Biggest Fan of the Big East" contestant and blogger Colleen Murphy!

What team are you most looking forward to playing in Big East play?

It’s a toss between UConn and Rutgers. I am looking forward to the rematch with UConn. This will show our win was not a fluke and that we can beat them with the evil Jim Calhoun on the bench. Rutgers is our backyard rival and always a good game.

What is the biggest improvement Seton Hall has made this year from last year?

I'm trying my hardest to block out the last two losses. But, our biggest improvement has been in the discipline department. In years past, supremely talented players like Herb Pope would take ill-advised three pointers. Now the team, except the 36 attempted threes vs. Nova, has stuck to the game plan.

Who is your favorite player on the team?

Jordan Theodore. He is a leader, plays with heart and intensity. He knows the game and the basic fundamentals to win a game with a team.

What quiet player will become a standout player before the year is over?

Brandon Mobley

What is the best part about playing in the Big East?

It improves the strength of schedule and gives the Pirates the best chance to be dancing. The season is always unpredictable, I usually find myself on the edge of my seat.

[Bonus] What is your prediction for the score of the Notre Dame - Seton Hall game?

SHU 71-ND 70

  1. Some great answers by Colleen. I agree that discipline is a key element in winning games. Also, the coach's demeanor with his players is very important. I sat just off to the side of the Syracuse bench during their loss to ND. Coach Boeheim didn't smile and was NOT giving any encouragement to his players. So Colleen, keep this in mind when the game gets under way this Wednesday. As always, GO IRISH!!
