Chris Christie: I'm half Seton Hall, half Rutgers

christieru021110_optBY MIKE VORKUNOV

I had a chance to talk with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie after Seton Hall's razor-thin win over Notre Dame. It was the first time Christie caught a game at the Prudential Center since taking over. A graduate of Seton Hall Law School, and former season ticket holder, he agreed to a quick one-and-one:

What's it like coming back to watch your alma mater as governor for the first time?

It's great. Seton Hall has been a big part of my life. My wife and I are both Seton Hall grads, she for her masters and me for my law degree.

We were season ticket holders for years before we had kids so it's great to come back and the school has always been great to me so I'm looking forward to speaking at law school commencement this spring.

What are you going to do when Seton Hall plays Rutgers? Rutgers fans vote too.

Yeah, listen I think I will have to do a half for Seton Hall and a half for Rutgers in that game. Because Rutgers is now my State University and Seton Hall is my alma mater. So half and half, I think.


Hazell-led Seton Hall beats Notre Dame, 90-87, to keep faint NCAA hopes alive

BOXSCORE: Seton Hall 90, Notre Dame 87

For some, Big East Conference is a ‘Life on the Bubble' of NCAA Tournament
