Introducing: the Seton Hall Pirates’ All-Half Decade Team.
Isaiah Whitehead, Guard
(120 votes, 96.8%)
It likely comes as no surprise that Isaiah Whitehead was the leading vote-getter for the Seton Hall Pirates’ All-Half Decade Team. Whitehead garnered 120 votes, amounting for 96.2% of the vote, the largest amount by far amongst the players on the ballot. He finished off a celebrated two-year career at Seton Hall by helping lead the Pirates to their first Big East Tournament championship in 23 years and their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2006 this past year.
Jeremy Hazell, Guard
(78 votes, 62.9%)
Jeremy Hazell is one of two players on this team that were from the Bobby Gonzalez era of Seton Hall basketball. Hazell was an accomplished player for the Pirates during a series of lean years in South Orange. He posted three consecutive seasons of at least 19.8 points per game with a mark of 22.7 in his sophomore season back in the 2008-09 campaign. In his final season, the 2010-11 campaign, he averaged 19.8 points per game. After four years at The Hall, Hazell was no doubt deserving of hopping onto this team.
Jordan Theodore, Guard
(56 votes, 45.2%)
Like Hazell, Jordan Theodore’s career began when Bobby Gonzalez was the head coach for the Pirates. Even with the eventual coaching change that Theodore and his teammates had to undergo when Kevin Willard stepped into the fold, the Englewood, New Jersey native got better and more impactful with age. Theodore wrapped up his career at The Hall with a season in which he averaged 16.1 points and 6.6 assists per game. Although he was a career 40.4 percent shooter, Theodore still did enough to snag a place on the team as an impactful distributor.
Fuquan Edwin, Guard/Forward
(91 votes, 73.4%)
Fuquan Edwin landed at The Hall in Kevin Willard’s first year and would go on to be one of the Pirates’ best since the 2010-11 campaign. Edwin was especially good on defense, as he was tied for the lead in steals in 2012, 102 to be precise, a Seton Hall record, and then would go on to win the Big East Defensive Player of the Year award in 2014. Suffice it to say, Edwin certainly did more than enough on both ends of the floor to warrant a spot on the team.
Angel Delgado, Forward
(87 votes, 70.2%)
Angel is the only player on the team that is currently a member of the active Pirates roster. Delgado burst onto the scene in the 2014-15 season as part of a celebrated crop of recruits. He stood out the most of anyone on the team and the conference as well as he was the recipient of the Big East Freshman of the Year award. He followed that up with another great season in his sophomore year and is likely to be a force down low again in his upcoming junior year.
