Seton Hall could have made themselves more solid – but instead delivered a desultory shooting performance which prevented them from getting off the fence.  So, we’ll see where this takes us as more teams have yet to play.  In auto-bid land, welcome Montana, Lehigh and Long Island to the pool, but nobody there is strong enough to threaten bubble spots.
