While we crying ourselves to sleep and watching movies such as The Notebook to keep Sportscenter off of the television screen so we wouldn’t be reminded of the basketball team, the baseball team wasn’t doing too great either. They dropped two out of three games to Seton Hall over the weekend. The only game they won should have counted for two wins as they defeated Seton Hall in a 17-inning triumph, 8-6. The other two games were lost 5-3 and 6-0 as the team now sits at 17-8 overall and a pretty lousy 3-3 in Big East play. Despite the losses, the 17-8 record matches the best 25 game start for coach Dan McDonnell, the last time we started out 17-8, we went to the College World Series.
