The Seton Hall Pirates may be without their star big man for the 2017-18 season.
College hoops insider Adam Zagoria is reporting that Angel Delgado isn’t expected to be back for his senior season. Zagoria’s report cites a team source and was further corroborated by New Jersey sportswriter Jerry Carino.
Seton Hall does not expect Angel Delgado to return for his senior season, team source says. Not projected to be drafted per @DraftExpress— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) May 11, 2017
I can confirm this. Stunning blow if it plays out as expected. https://t.co/FYSYwgrYvb— Jerry Carino (@NJHoopsHaven) May 11, 2017
Delgado was a First Team All-Big East selection after his performance in the 2016-17 season and took home the Haggerty Award as well, which is handed out to the best player in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. In his three years with The Hall, Delgado averaged 11.5 points and 10.7 rebounds per game while shooting 55.3 percent from the field. Last season, he averaged 15.2 points and 13.0 rebounds on a mark of 54.3 percent from the field.
Should Angel leave, this would obviously be a big blow for the Pirates in a multitude of ways. But Delgado’s hoops aspirations should also be kept in mind here too.
