Two days behind schedule, Seton Hall is set to make its season debut on Friday, and no one knows what to expect.
After a two-week COVID-19 break due to a positive test within the Pirates program, Hall did only three exercises to prepare for the season opener in Louisville at the ACC program’s multi-team event. It is unknown who will start and who will be available. Expect a lot of mixing and matching from Director Kevin Willard.
This is well known. It’s a major test for programs that have a lot of question marks without layoffs. After Miles Powell and Quincy McKnight graduated, there was a whole new backcoat, and now that Romaro Gil is gone, there is a new starting center.
Much is expected of Harvard graduate transfer Bryce Akin, who had only a handful of exercises after missing a significant portion of the preseason due to a knee injury. Takar Molson, a sit-out transfer from Canicius, also plays a big role after being able to practice only a year ago.
The All Big East pre-season first team selection, Sandromam Kera Shibiri, along with senior Miles Kale and junior Jarid Roden, is sought to be one of Pirates’ new dependable men. The roster is talented, but somewhat unproven. In particular, you need to make on-the-fly adjustments without using scrim magic or exhibition games to resolve the twist.
Starting with a trip to Louisville can be a daunting task. Doing so makes it even more difficult if you stop the two-week pause with just a few preparation exercises.
