Game 9 recap & four thoughts

Notes: Rutgers athletic director Pat Hobbs hired both head coaches in this game, as he served as interim AD at Seton Hall previously and tabbed Kevin Willard for the job. He hired Steve Pikiell at Rutgers just a few months after becoming AD on the banks in late 2015. Seton Hall’s Michael Nzei and Rutgers’ Mamadou Doucoure played high school basketball together at Our New Savior American in Long Island.
