When making your March Madness office pool picks, consider the teams carefully.  The Seton Hall Pirates, for example, should make it into the first weekend, but will they?  Remember to print out your March Madness bracket here


Why They Go Deep

Seton Hall was chosen early to finish 8th in the conference and ended up in the final losing to Villanova, and nearly pulling off the upset with a final score of 72-74.  They are expected to face a Washington Huskies team that lost to Oregon in their conference final and has only covered in three of their last ten games.  Seton Hall has beaten Kentucky, Maryland, Marquette and Villanova and has only a few losses that make you raise your eyebrows.  This is a team that should be able to make it into the first weekend based on their upward trajectory performance which is evident in their record Against The Spread their last ten games (7-3 and, perhaps more importantly, 5-0 in their last five). 

Why Be Concerned

It's one thing to face Washington in their first meeting.  The competition gets tougher the first weekend against a higher seed.

Who They Will Play

The Huskies look like their first opponent and the edge really goes to Seton Hall based on current play if this is the case.
