Around the Hall: Tuesday, October 27

Adam Zagoria of SNY takes a look at sophomore backup point guard, Jordan Theodore.

(Theodore) dedicated himself over the summer by waking up every day at 8 a.m., eating a good meal and then beginning a workout at City Sports on 4 in his hometown of Englewood, N.J.

Working with his friend Donald Hennie, a 5-10 guard who played at Seton Hill University in Greensburg, Pa. and professionally overseas, Theodore put up 3,000 shots a day, worked on his dribble and hit the treadmill.

"I just wanted to get better and just wanted to be on the court this season," Theodore said. "That was my whole mindset. I played a lot last year, but coming into this year I just wanted to play more."

Theodore should see an increase in minutes this year despite the added depth to SHU's backcourt in transfers Keon Lawrence and Jamel Jackson. Barring injury, it's unlikely that Theodore will see many starts this year, however there is no question that he'll see valuable minutes throughout the season.

The team has to feel confident in his dedication throughout the offseason, putting on size, improving his jumper and becoming more vocal. The Pirates will look to Theodore next year to be their leader with the departure of Harvey, however, there will still be a sizable opportunity for him to contribute this season.

Slam Magazine checks out Mt. Vernon's Latest in Jabarie Hinds, who is drawing interest from Seton Hall along with a shopping list of heavyweights. Rivals currently lists Hinds as their 77th overall player from the class of 2011 and 18th overall point guard.
