SETON HALL PIRATES RUMORS & GOSSIP
(Tom Maayan, pictured on the right, serving in the Israeli military – mycentraljersey.com)
Tom Maayan, a freshman point guard last season for the men’s basketball team, left Seton Hall in early April to fulfill his military duty in Israel as all Israeli citizens must do.
I wrote an article about this back in May and at that point it was unclear if Maayan would be granted furlough...

Probably the most puzzling and funny news story (to me at least) to come about was the future of Seton Hall men’s basketball backup center Kevin Johnson.
It did not come as a surprise to me, probably to others as well, that Kevin Johnson decided to transfer. I saw the news Monday night from Adam Zagoria’s Twitter handle (@AdamZagoria), confirming other sources...
Seton Hall has blocked the transfer of center Kevin Johnson to Cal State-Northridge, according to a report today by Zagsblog writer Adam Zagoria.

Just as things were starting to look up for the Seton Hall University men’s basketball team these past couple of months following some key player additions, a decision today by the team’s up-and-coming sophomore center has put the team in a tough spot.
Per reports from Piratecrew.com, sophomore center Kevin Johnson has decided to transfer from...
Seton Hall freshman point guard Tom Maayan had a lot on his shoulders coming into the 2012-2013 season. He had a lot of playing time throughout the season because of an injury filled Pirate team and without him, the team would have probably been in a worse position than what they were already. Rumors spread during the season saying that Maayan would be heading back home to Israel...

Former Seton Hall guard Aaron Cosby has announced his decision on where he will transfer to after leaving the Pirates after this season. He will take his talents to Illinois after sitting out a year.
Cosby tweeted out "I-L-L....." to announce his decision around midnight Friday night on...
At last night’s Pitt vs Seton Hall college basketball tilt we witnessed one of the better illegal moves in college basketball. Seton Hall center Gene Teague goes up for a dunk, misses it, the ball pops out and he continues to hold onto the rim while grabbing the rebound and trying to put it back. Teague gets an A+ for creativity, A+ for effort, and F for legality. That type of...
Fuquan Edwin, limited by foul trouble in the first half, scored 18 of his game-high 25 points in the second half to power Seton Hall past Saint Peter's 76-61 Sunday.
Eugene Teague, a 6-foot-9 junior center, complemented Edwin's effort with 20 points, 10 rebounds and four assists for Seton Hall (5-1), which also received 13 points from Aaron Cosby.
Edwin, who sat for 12...

At the Prudential Center in Newark Tuesday night, Seton Hall upset Georgetown 73-55 in a Big East college basketball matchup. After the clock ran out, Seton Hall students tried to storm the court, but were prevented from doing so due to some apparently really strong security personnel.
It would seem from the video that the students outnumbered the security personnel by a...
Jordan Theodore scored a career-high 29 points to lead Seton Hall to the signature win it needed for its NCAA tournament resume, a 73-55 victory over No. 9 Georgetown on Tuesday night.
The Pirates (19-9, 8-8 Big East) put on quite a shooting performance against one of the conference's best defensive teams. They shot 61.0 percent (25 for 41), the best against the Hoyas this season...

Told at an early age by Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes that “white men can’t jump” it seems that “white men can shoot.” At least according to Seton Hall Pirates basketball coach Kevin Willard. If only I would have known that I should have been more like Larry Bird than Michael Jordan when I was
