Seton Hall's PG close to leaving?
By Matt Giles
After backing up Jordan Theodore last season, Aaron Cosby seamlessly filled Seton Hall's starting point guard slot in 2013. The sophomore has posted an assist rate of nearly 23 percent, and thanks to his offensive skills -- he has converted 39 percent of his threes this season -- that force opposing defenses to play up on Cosby, it seemed the guard had a long future leading Kevin Willard's offensive sets. However, it now appears that Cosby may not be long for the South Orange school.
In a recent article detailing Willard's struggles, Steve Politi of the Newark Star-Ledger revealed Cosby will look to transfer during the offseason. While this isn't confirmed -- there is still a chance Cosby remains at Seton Hall -- it cannot be comforting to Willard and his coaching staff that their starting point is itching to leave the program (Cosby would be the second guard to leave SHU in recent months; Freddie Wilson transferred to Drexel).
We will remain vigilant for any new information regarding Cosby's status at SHU, though the whispers that Cosby is indeed gone the moment the Pirates' season ends are growing stronger.
