Getting embarrassed by No. 1 Syracuse last week angered Seton Hall seniors Jordan Theodore and Herb Pope so much they vowed to make the Pirates’ upcoming opponents pay.

Frank Haith didn’t see this coming. Not in the first month of the first season at a new school.
It will be interesting the see how the Red Storm respond against Kentucky without Steve Lavin on the bench.
