Editor's Note: Insider has teamed with Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook, long known as the Bible of college basketball, to provide a comprehensive look at all 326 Division I teams.


Expectations are high in South Orange after three years of steady growth under coach Louis Orr. Seton Hall peaked last year with a 21-10 record (10-6 Big East) and a trip to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Orr has quickly established himself as one of the top coaches in the Big East and appears to boast enough returning talent to keep Seton Hall near the top of the conference again this season. Orr knows expectations will be higher for the 2004-05 campaign, but doesn't expect his team to be overcome by pressure.
