SOUTH ORANGE -

The Seton Hall basketball team's recent success has generated a lot of buzz in the past couple of seasons.

Attendance is up by about 1,000 people a game as the Pirates have made it to two straight NCAA tournaments for the first time in 20 years.

"It goes to show we're on the right path and, knock on wood, if the team stays healthy, next year could be a good year as well," said Seton Hall Athletic Director Pat Lyons.

The South Orange team now has the nation's leading rebounder in Angel Delgado and alumni like Isaiah Whitehead heading to the NBA.

Experts say Seton Hall could ranked as one of the top 25 college basketball teams before the season starts.
