For the first time since January of 2001 the Seton Hall Pirates men's basketball program earned a top-25 spot in the college basketball rankings, as they checked in at No. 24 in the AP Poll, released Monday afternoon. The Pirates (14-2, 3-1 Big East Conference) are currently on a three-game winning streak, which includes last Tuesday's upset victory over No.17 (then No. 8) Connecticut Huskies, 75-63
The Pirates are also off to their best start to a season since 1992-93 when they earned a Big East title. On their way to a national ranking, the Pirates knocked off VCU, Saint Joseph's, Dayton and UConn. Their only bad loss came at the hands of the No. 1 team in the nation, the Syracuse Orange.
Also, unfortunately Seton Hall failed to crack the top 25 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll. So, we want to know Seton Hall fans: How do you feel about the Pirates No. 24 ranking?
