What is in a number? Excuse coach John Thompson III if ’23’ leaves him in a cold sweat. Rysheed Jordan of St. John’s wore that number, came out and buried a few perimeter shots to spark the Red Storm and adoring fans, and the rout was on. At the Rock, Fuquan Edwin, another 23, hit a few early, getting the Hall off and rolling.
As we wind down and the schedule gets busier, Seton Hall had some opportunity to get a few days off. What a wonder a rest can do especially at this time. A break to refresh the mind, body and game. A three-day off stretch was followed by an very good practice on Monday before Georgetown. A day later, the Pirates had a three hour workout and “our best practice this season,” per coach Kevin Willard.
The results were out there for all to see in an excellent forty-minute showing on Thursday evening.
