Fuquan Edwin, Gene Teague collect All-Met honors

Graduating seniors Fuquan Edwin and Gene Teague have been named first and third team All-Metropolitan area, respectively.

Edwin (14.5 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 2.7 spg) became Seton Hall's all-time leading steals guy this season while leading the Pirates in scoring during his fourth and final season in South Orange. Edwin recently played three games at the Portsmouth Invitational, a senior showcase for college players hoping to make NBA rosters or boost their stock for overseas ball. Edwin impressed in his team's first game with 22 points but struggled to make a noticeable impact in their game two and game three losses.

Playing the role of an under-the-basket anchor, Southern Illinois transfer Gene Teague (11.2 ppg, 7.9 rpg) was a pivotal part of Seton Hall's offensive attack this season and should be able to play somewhere in Europe if he desires and is healthy. Teague and Edwin have both been working out with trainer Tarik Robinson recently in preparation for their next steps in basketball.

Herb Pope (2012), Jordan Theodore (2012), and Jeremy Hazell (2011) preceded Fuquan Edwin in being named to All-Met first teamers in recent years.

D'Angelo Harrison was named Haggerty Player of the Year, while JaKarr Sampson, Kadeem Jack, and Myles Mack also were named to All-Met teams:
