Seton Hall Basketball Set to Travel to Spain

The Seton Hall Pirates are set to venture to Spain on August 13th for a ten day trip that is centered around games against Spanish pro teams.

The team hopes that exhibition games against seasoned Spanish clubs will help them get ready for the upcoming season. The Spanish national basketball team is currently labeled as the second best squad in the Olympics and is considered the only real threat to a gold medal against LeBron James and the U. S.

Head coach Kevin Willard sounded excited for the opportunity with this quote to the Seton Hall Athletics website:

“This year’s team is a combination of experienced veterans and fresh new talent,” said Willard. “Playing against professional teams in Spain is a great way to showcase Seton Hall’s tour de force, not only in the Big East, but throughout the world.”

Willard’s optimism is clear and he does have some good points. By infusing transfers like Kyle Smyth, Gene Teague, and Brian Oliver with the core of Fuquan Edwin, Aaron Cosby, and Brandon Mobley among others, the Pirates may have the necessary pieces for a¬†successful¬†season. This trip to Spain should only help there cause.

Other schools that have traveled to Spain to duel with its top teams include Baylor, St. John’s, USC, UTEP, and Valparaiso.
