The Seton Hall Pirates will host the Iona Gaels on Monday night. This is Iona’s first game of the season and Rick Pitino’s first season with the Gaels. Last season, they finished 12-17 and 9-11 in MAAC conference play. The Pirates finished 21-9 last season and went 13-5 in Big East conference play. Seton Hall opened up there season this past Friday against Louisville with a heartbreaking 71-70 loss.
The Pirates top point guard, Bryce Aiken, will be out at least two weeks with a high right ankle sprain. This means the Pirates will have to rely heavily on senior guard Shavar Reynolds and freshman point guard Jahari Long.
The Pirates look to improve shooting wise as they only shot 33% from the floor and 26.1% from the three-point line. If the Pirates are able to “click” and improve their shooting, this team will be scary team to play as Big East play is only a few weeks away.
This should be an easy win for Kevin Willard and the Seton Hall Pirates, but as we know anything can happen in college basketball. This will be a good test for the Pirates as the Gaels had the top recruiting class in their conference bringing in a three star point guard and three top 100 JUCO players. Hope everyone is staying safe and enjoys a late night game of Seton Hall basketball.
