NEWARK - For Seton Hall, last year was a tale of two teams. Through the first half of the season, the Pirates were 13-3, and a trip to the NCAA Tournament well within their sight. However the team went 3-12 to finish the season and failed to qualify for the Big Dance. Entering his sixth season as Seton Hall's head coach, Kevin Willardis still looking for his first visit to the NCAA Tournament.

During the season opener, it was unclear which Seton Hall team we'd see this year. In what was supposed to be an easy victory, Seton Hall was unable to pull away from Dartmouth in the first half before ultimately winning 84-67.

Isaiah Whitehead went for 18 points, 8 assists and 5 rebounds. Derrick Gordon, making his Pirates debut, had 14 points and 5 assists, Khadeen Carrington scored 13 and Desi Rodriguez 12.

Four-star recruit Myles Powell has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for Seton Hall beginning in the fall of 2016.

Powell, who committed in September, is on the ESPN Top 100 list for Class of 2016 student-athletes, and is Seton Hall's first commit for its 2016 recruiting class. Powell is also ranked the third-best recruit in the state of New Jersey, and is considered one of the best three-point shooters in the country.

"We are very excited to welcome Myles into the Seton Hall Basketball family," head coach Kevin Willard said. "Myles has a tremendous shooting ability, and he also can beat his defenders off the dribble. He is a terrific young man who will fit in very well in our program and at the University."
