When Seton Hall hired Kevin Willard to be their new Men’s Basketball Coach in the Spring of 2010, he was given two jobs, restore the Seton Hall name and make the team successful.  Well job well done so far Mr. Willard.  After a rocky start to his tenure at The Hall, Willard has wins this season over VCU, St. Joes, Dayton, Auburn, West Virginia and most recently #8 UConn,  Seton Hall is back in the AP Top 25 at #24  and is 27th in the Coaches Poll and with their RPI being #2 the only thing that keeps them from Dancing in March is a collapse of Red Sox proportions. Tonight, The Ultimate Rock Show takes on the DePaul Blue Demons on the corner of Edison and Mulberry. DePaul since joining the Big East in 2005 has been perennial cellar dwellers and Oliver Purnell has a tough road ahead of him.
