Before Seton Hall improved to 3-0 during their 10-day exhibition tour throughout Spain this afternoon, word broke that Seton Hall commit, 2013 PG Aquille Carr (Patterson HS, NJ) was arrested on an assault charge in his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland.
NBC Sports was first to report that Carr was arrested on Friday morning and the Baltimore Sun learned that the incoming high school senior is being held on $50,000 bond after being charged with second degree assault and reckless endangerment. For some time, we've publicly doubted that we'd ever see Carr suit up in South Orange for various reasons, but this latest development likely puts any hope that fans held out into a deep sleep. At SOJ we refuse to speculate, but it should be noted that Carr spent Thursday publicly promoting an after party at the, "Bedroom VIP Lounge" in Baltimore. Aquille Carr turns 19 in September.
Further details have emerged in the alleged assault, including the police report against Carr, filed by his daughter's mother, Treshonda Williams. Of course, he's innocent until proven guilty, but the reports which include Carr throwing, kicking and punching Williams are simply, disgusting. To be fair, it must be noted that Williams did not have any visible injuries and refused medical attention.
Carr, a Top-100 recruit in the class of 2013 and You Tube legend, surprisingly announced his commitment to Seton Hall in January, 2012. Luckily for the Pirates, they already have their 2013 PG in tow and his name is Sterling Gibbs (and possibly, Aaron Cosby, along with Tommy Maayan, as well).
Following this morning's developments and after a day of relaxation in the Canary Islands, the Pirates defeated Gran Canaria u20, 70-61, in a game that saw sophomore Aaron Cosby start his 2nd exhibition at point guard. Fuquan Edwin added 13 points and sophomore Brandon Mobley, who received his second start at PF, recorded 11 points.
