SOUTH ORANGE – The Seton Hall men’s basketball team is nationally ranked by the Associated Press Poll for the first time in nearly 11 years.
Monday’s release of the poll revealed the Pirates as being ranked #24 with 205 points. It’s the first time since Jan. 30, 2001 that Seton Hall has been ranked. That day, the Pirates were ranked #22.
At 14-2 overall and 3-1 in the Big East, Seton Hall is off to its best start since the 1992-93 season.

Seton Hall returns to action on Tuesday, Jan. 10 when they return to the Prudential Center to host DePaul. The Pirates are a perfect 9-0 at “The Rock” this season. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
