Seton Hall Basketball: Pirates Exit From Big East Tournament; Unsure Of NCAA Fate

There's nothing worse than leaving your NCAA Tournament fate in the hands of others, and that's just what the Seton Hall Pirates men's basketball program did Wednesday when they lost to the Louisville Cardinals, 61-55, in the second round of the Big East Conference Tournament at Madison Square Garden.

The loss was the Pirates (20-12, 8-10 Big East) fourth in six games, and made them 5-10 since starting the season 15-2. The question now, in regards to Seton Hall's NCAA Tournament fate, is whether or not its previous body of work before the late-season skid was enough to merit a March Madness berth.

"I think we did enough to get in [the Tournament], but it's up to the selection committee on Sunday," said senior point guard Jordan Theodore after the loss to Louisville.

As of 10:48 p.m. ET on Wednesday night, ESPN.com's Joe Lunardi said Seton Hall was not in the field of 68 teams, however, that could change with a losses from other bubble teams -- USF, Northwestern, Xavier, Texas, Tennessee -- that still need to play in their conference tournament's.

So, if you're a Pirates fan, basically, all you can do now is sit, wait, watch and hope that another bubble squad losses, and badly.
