Joe D'Amico's Big East Game of the Month
Rutgers vs. Seton Hall,
02/25/2012 17:00 EDT,
Score: 77 - 72
Point Spread: -7½/-110 Seton Hall
Today's winner is Seton Hall over Rutgers. This is my Big East Game of the Month.
Seton Hall needs one win in their L2 games to hit 20 victories in a season for the first time in over a decade. They have won 4 of the L5 SU, going 5-0 ATS, including a 59-54 defeat of Rutgers. In the first meeting, the Scarlet Knights couldn't handle the Pirates "D", shooting a mere 31.5% from the floor. Rutgers has dropped 6 in a row SU, going 1-5 ATS. In 5 of their L6 outings, they lost by DDs. Jordan Theodore is red-hot, leading Seton Hall with 15.9 PPG. His supporting cast of Pope, Edwin, and Crosby (36.3 PPG combined) make this team a very dangerous unit for any foe. Throw in Pope and Edwin's ownership of the glass with 17 RPG combined and say goodnight to a Rutgers team that hasn't been able to top 70 points in any Big East matchup this season. Take Seton Hall. Thank you.
