Se­ton Hall over RUT­GERS by 13

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2017-18 Ncaa & Nba Basketball -

Led by four re­turn­ing starters from last year’s 21-win squad, the Pi­rates (8-1, 0-0) – who were ousted in the first round of last year’s NCAA tour­ney – fig­ure to be a ma­jor player come this March. In fact, the poll­sters agree as Kevin Wil­lard’s group is ranked in the AP Top 15 for the first time since 2001. And the Hall should con­tinue to have a ball in non-con­fer­ence play as they take on a Rut­gers (8-3, 0-2) bunch who they have beaten like a drum ( last four, last eight away) and was tabbed by most pun­dits to fin­ish last in the Big Ten this sea­son. Don’t let the Knights’ record fool you as six of their eight wins have come against foes from non­lined con­fer­ences. Thus, be­hind the top front­court in the Big East (sorry, Vil­lanova), we’ll look for the Se­ton Swash­buck­lers to, once again, roll at the RAC. An easy lay.
