Happy Hump Day, Juicers. Yesterday brought another twist to the Kevin Johnson saga as Kevin Willard intended on blocking his transfer to Cal State-Northridge. The University then released a statement last night that Johnson will be released from the program. Will Seton Hall be able to make it through the rest of the week without more negative news?
Looks like Kevin Johnson's transfer has provoked the link between Pompey and Northridge to become a little bit more than just a rumor.
Even though Seton Hall isn't earning annual NCAA bids, Kevin Willard is producing results in the classroom. Jerry Carino lays out the latest APR scores from 2011-12. Seton Hall has a multi-year score of 963 and a single-year score (2011-12) of 1000, which is perfect. Five other schools in the Big East also scored 1000.
Seagears transferred to Auburn amid the Mike Rice scandal that cost him his job. Without ever suiting up for the Tigers, Seagears has left the program. Rutgers has not been ruled out as a possible destination once again.
DraftExpress had a less-than-stellar evaluation of former Seton Hall commit Aquille Carr at the bottom of the above link. In response, the Baltimore Sun ran a story that cited this evaluation. Carr responded on Twitter with his own "evaluation" (NSFW) of the Sun's piece. Here is a screen-cap just in case Carr deletes his tweet.
The title says it all. In case you don't know what the AAC is, its the name for what's left of the 'old' Big East. Memphis will also compete in the AAC during the 2013-14 season, so they have a chance to win the 'chip on their home court.
Boo the NLI rule... Boo!
