College Basketball Rankings, Week 10 Projections: Will Seton Hall Basketball Crack The Top 25?

The Seton Hall Pirates men's basketball team has rallied off three straight Big East Conference victories, and Monday Pirates fans wait the release of the college basketball rankings that should feature Seton Hall in it for the first time since January, 2011.

The headline is misleading. There really is not a question of whether or not the Seton Hall Pirates men's basketball program will be ranked in the college basketball rankings, which are released Monday afternoon; the question actually is more about where they will be ranked.


SB Nation New York Update: Seton Hall Ranked No. 24 In AP Poll


After last week earning an upset victory Tuesday over current No. 8 Connecticut Huskies, 75-63, and Saturday at the Providence Friars, 66-57, Seton Hall (14-2, 3-1 Big East Conference) is currently tied for second place in the league standings with current No. 9 Georgetown Hoyas and West Virginia Mountaineers. The only school standing in the Pirates way of first place is No. 1 Syracuse Orange, who manhandled them, 75-49, almost two weeks ago at the Carrier Dome.

But, forget about that game because for Pirates fans that game feels like a year ago, as Seton hall has rallied off three straight victories in possibly the nation's toughest conference -- just three days after losing to SU, the Pirates defeated WVU, 67-48.

Now, Pirates fans sit, wait and click refresh on the ESPN.com's, CBS.com's and AP.com's websites because for the first time since January of 2011 their team will be ranked in the AP Top 25 -- I am guessing somewhere between No. 15-20.

Congrats Pirates fans. You've earned it and waited a long time for it.
