The Seton Hall Pirates could have their best player, Myles Powell, back in the lineup sooner rather than later.
Fortunately for Seton Hall fans, Powell is already back on the court for some “light shooting” according to Zach Braziller of the New York Post. Braziller also notes that it’s “possible” that Powell is back as soon as Sunday against Saint Louis.
“With ankle sprains, you just never know what’s going to happen,” Willard said on College Hoops Today with Jon Rothstein.
Unfortunately for Seton Hall fans, even if he’s on the fast track to returning, he’ll most certainly miss the team’s high-profile tilt with Michigan State. The Pirates are hosting the Spartans at the Prudential Center in what was supposed to be one of the biggest games in a long time for the program.
However, Powell’s injury puts a damper on the mood. Additionally, Michigan State’s loss to Kentucky dropped Tom Izzo’s squad from their preseason No. 1 ranking. Nevertheless, playing the third-ranked Spartans close or—stay with me, here—pulling off an upset without their best player could be a huge stepping stone for Seton Hall.
Michigan State and Seton Hall will meet on Thursday, Nov. 14 (8:30 p.m. ET).
