I received the following email from the kind folks at EuroBasket, it looks like they ran with a premature rumor, but have since removed the story, once learning it was inaccurate:
Yesterday I was advised about the news on Herbert Pope signing in Turkey and, as soon as I got the news, I cancelled the news. I can assure you that no one at Eurobasket wants to hurt the image of Seton Hall, I think it was taken from another website that publish all the rumors. I am sorry again for the mistake.
Thanks for clearing the air, gentlemen. Let's play basketball boys.
