Rob Maganaro joins Norman from Rumble in the Garden to discuss the current state of Seton Hall hoops.
If you haven't been following our Twitter feed, here's SHU Athletics recap. Note: Gene Teague dropped 16 points, not 12, as the article states, but hey, who's counting during exhibition basketball? A second correction, Freddie Wilson also started at the point this evening, not Aaron Cosby.
From Seton Hall Athletics: "Cosby scored a team-high 23 points and was an impressive 5-for-8 from three-point range. Getting the start at point guard, he also led the Pirates with seven assists. Every Pirate scored in the game with the exception of Tom Maayan (Galil, Isreal) and Brian Oliver (Glassboro, N.J.) who did not play. Maayan is completing his rehab from an ACL tear and Oliver is nursing a slight ankle sprain. Both players are expected to be ready for the start of the regular season."

Recapping a great year that may not have turned out the way we all hoped it would, while also setting the stage for the better times that lie ahead. Go Pirates!

Aquille Carr will be one of two people featured on the one hour show, 'CNN Presents' this evening. From CNN.com: At 5' 7", he's been told he's too small to make his NBA dreams come true. Is he "Basketball's Next Big Thing"? Sunday night, 8 Eastern.
Well, there's no Seton Hall transfer news as of yet, but today we learned what many have expected for weeks. Connecticut's Junior F/C Alex Oriakhi and Rutgers Sophomore F Gilvydas Biruta will both transfer from their respective Big East programs. Oriakhi will be eligible to play his last season immediately if UConn loses it's 2012-13 postseason appeal, while Biruta is said to be considering Maryland or reuniting with his former St. Benedict's High School coach, Danny Hurley, in Rhode Island. We wish both players well as we certainly won't miss either when facing their former teams next season.
Aquille Carr and his Patterson High School teammates will take on St. Benedict's Prep at 4:00pm as part of the Dan Finn Classic at the Jersey City Armory. If available, tickets can be purchased at the door ($10) and are good for all six games today. If you're unable to attend in person, you can also watch online for a $10 donation. Carr told Adam Zagoria on Wednesday: "I would like for all Seton Hall fans to come out."
