No. 10 Seton Hall entered the season ranked No. 12 in the nation, but they wouldn't stay there for long.
After losses to then-No. 3 Michigan State and then-No. 11 Oregon put the Pirates at a 6-2 record through the first five weeks of play, Seton Hall fell all the way out of the rankings with back-to-back losses to Iowa State and Rutgers.
But Seton Hall has fought back, winning eight straight games -- including wins over then-No. 7 Maryland and then-No. 5 Butler -- to claw their way back up the rankings and into the Top-10.
"I think it's really exciting for the kids," head coach Kevin Willard said. "It gives them an opportunity to realize the hard work and time that they've put in. It gets recognized. I think the schedule we've played and the teams we've played has helped us prepare to get to this point."
