Outside of Kansas State’s extremely impressive win at No. 3 Missouri Tuesday night, Seton Hall and Colorado State came up with the next two biggest “W”s of the night.
Seton Hall came out and shot the lights out in a 73-55 win at home over No. 9 (AP) Georgetown. It was definitely the biggest win thus far this season for the Pirates, whose win over then-No. 8 Connecticut was probably their biggest win prior to this one.
A few hours later, Colorado State came up with a huge effort in knocking off No. 18 (AP) New Mexico, 71-63, in Fort Collins. The Rams slowed down a Lobo team who had been a serious tear over the past four weeks, capped off by double-digit wins at San Diego State and at home against UNLV last week.
Both Seton Hall and Colorado State moved closer to a spot in the NCAA Tournament after picking up an extremely significant win.
Which team is in better shape after Tuesday’s action? Here’s a look, including the summary numbers on each team below.
Seton Hall: 19-10, 8-9 Big East; RPI 44, SOS 35
Colorado State: 16-10, 6-6 MWC; RPI 26, SOS 5
