The Seton Hall Pirates are going back to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth consecutive season. They earned the 10 seed in the Midwest region, and will play the Wofford Terriers on Thursday. That contest will be played in Jacksonville, Florida.

Kevin Willard’s club has made a strong push late in the season. At one point it looked like the Pirates were not going to make the field. However, after beating Marquette twice, Villanova, and blowing out Georgetown, they played themselves right into the tournament picture. Although they dropped the Big East Tournament Final, Seton Hall has momentum going forward in March.

Wofford is coming off a 29-4 season in which they won the Southern Conference regular season crown, as well as the tournament title. The winner of the Pirates and Terriers matchup will most likely (barring an upset) the 2nd seeded Kentucky Wildcats.
