With Isaiah Whitehead sidelined from the 2014 Jordan Brand Classic's National Game with a hamstring injury, all Seton Hall eyes were on the Regional Game earlier today at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Rebounding machine Angel Delgado (11 pts, 17 rebs), athletic combo forward Desi Rodriguez (17 pts), who is set to sign his NLI on Monday, and glue guy Ismael Sanogo (7 pts, 11 rebs) all played well while scoring guard Khadeen Carrington (18 pts) earned MVP honors for the White team in a 102-99 overtime win. Delgado played on the Black team against his three future teammates.
We were unable to cover the event, but here is how Twitter reacted (positively) during and after the game:
Angel Delgado is going to give Seton Hall everything it's been missing since Herb Pope played PF. Great post defender. Relentless rebounder.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) April 18, 2014
Seton Hall bound @angelluis45 living up to his rep as one of top rebounders in country he has 15 in Jordan Brand Classic Regional game— NJ Hoops (@NJHoops) April 18, 2014
Would not be shocked to see Seton Hall use regular 4G sets next year and as play fast as possible. Sina, Gibbs, Carrington, Whitehead.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) April 18, 2014
Seton Hall could sweep MVP honors in the regional game. Khadeen Carrington has 18 points, Angel Delgado has 17 rebounds.— Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) April 18, 2014
Desi is putting on a show. Seton Hall is going to be scary good next year.— Miguel A. Rodriguez (@Mrodrig223) April 18, 2014
Seton Hall commit Desi Rodriguez has stolen the game's final minutes. Making big plays.— Jeremy Woo (@Jeremy_Woo) April 18, 2014
SHU-bound @desirodriguez6 blocks Ja'Quan Newton as time expires and we're headed to OT. Samson Usilo tied it at 95 on acrobatic layup.— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) April 18, 2014
Black team MVP is Ja'Quan Newton, white team MVP, white team MVP is Carrington. Again, Seton Hall is the winner in this one.— Josh Newman (@Joshua_Newman) April 18, 2014
If you're @KevinWillard , you've got to be very excited about this group.— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) April 18, 2014
Ja'Quan Newton: '(The Seton Hall) guys looked great together. I think they're going to be a great backcourt.'— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) April 18, 2014
Which member of the 2014 class are you most excited to watch play next season?
