We now know how Seton Hall will try to replace Myles Powell and Quincy McKnight’s launch site.
On Thursday, Harvard guard Bryce Aiken announced that he would commit to playing for the pirates. Aiken is a graduate transfer that played four seasons for the Crimson. After only seven games as a senior, he received an additional year. As a junior, he was arguably the best player in the Ivy League, averaging over 22 points as a 6-foot-2 lead guard.
He will join Takal Molson, a graduate transfer from Canisius, in the pirate back seat. Molson scored an average of 16.9 points last season.
It’s hard to imagine that this duo is as good as Powell, an All-American first team, and McKnight, an All-Big East guard, but they don’t have to. Seton Hall is likely to be built around Sandro Mamukelashvili next season. If Myles Cale, Jared Rhoden and Tyrese Samuel take a step forward, Seton Hall will have a chance to become one of the better teams in the league again.
