Good Gonzo! Hall Tops Johnnies 59-50


Last night was a night of uncertainties. Question marks if you will. With the Hall's senior captain and (walk-on?) point guard Eugene Harvey (see left) out with a bruised wrist, how would JT handle the pressures of being the primary ball handler? Would Stix's sticks be up for the increase in minutes? Would Ben's lineup that he's been clamoring for finally get time together on the court? Would we respond well to playing at the dreaded Carnesecca Arena...Gonzo's supposed "House of Horrors?"

Well, last night, I think Ben and I found our answer. Doing his best Allen Iverson impression, Jeff "Robblehead" Robinson continued to prove how invaluable he is to our beloved Pirates. When Jeremy Hazell went down with a gash in his shooting hand, we were left to wonder: "who are we going to follow?" We then watched as the mopboys (or men?) "followed (the blood of) Hazell" all over the hardwood, moping up drops Hansel and Gretyl style.

Fortunately, Jeff, like the beast he is, showed he was up to the challenge of leading the Pirates to victory. And, following in his man-child footsteps, was none other than crowd favorite Stixie Mitchell. Like two peas in a pod, Jeff and Stix combined for 31 of Seton Hall's 59 points and 14 of the 35 rebounds. Sounds like we got the right answer after all, Professor G!

Luckily, we were able to come up with some answers last night. Claiming our first BIG EAST road victory was certainly no easy task, especially against Metro rival St. Johns. Now that we passed our first test, how will we fare Saturday against West Virginia? That's the question...hopefully Gonzo can come up with the answer.

Harvey looks much shorter in that picture. Did he do something to his hair?

Its funny, The Bobby Bobblehead looks more like JRob than Gonzo. Except I don't think JRob would be caught dead wearing THAT suit!
