The Seton Hall Pirates took a serious drop last season, finishing with an overall record of 15-18 and being one of the worst teams in the Big East. However, which players could help the Pirates get back on the right track in the 2013-14 college basketball season?
The obvious answer is Fuquan Edwin. Edwin led the team in scoring last season, with 16.5 points per game. He also had 5.8 rebounds per game. He will play a big role once again for Seton Hall in the upcoming season.
Eugene Teague will also have to come up big. He put up some good numbers himself, averaging 11.2 points per game and 7.2 rebounds per game.
Another player that could help out quite a bit is incoming freshman Jaren Sina. He very well could be the most important player on the team because Seton Hall definitely needs new field general. If Sina does not emerge, someone will have to step up at the point guard position.
Those three players could help the Pirates get back on the right track, but this entire team is going to have to get better in general.
This is a team that finished with a 3-15 record in the conference last season, so it needs to work on many different things. Playing in a slightly less talented Big East should help out some, but something has to give for the Pirates. Just a season ago, Seton Hall just barely missed out on making the NCAA tournament, but that was clearly not the case in the past one.
