Details are starting to surface regarding the Saturday shooting of Seton Hall’s senior guard, Jeremy Hazell, the most important of which is that he’s home and expected to recover completely.
A spokesman at Seton Hall University says one of its basketball team’s senior guards was shot and wounded Christmas night when someone tried to rob him in New York City.
Athletics spokesman Matt Sweeney says Jeremy Hazell was treated at a Manhattan hospital and was released Sunday.
The South Orange, N.J.-based university’s spokesman says Hazell was shot “under his right arm” in Harlem, where his family lives. He says the injury is not life-threatening.
The six-foot-five Hazell was already recovering from wrist surgery when the incident occurred. While previously projected to be one of Seton Hall’s primary scorers as well as an NBA Draft prospect, recent events might necessitate that he redshirt his senior season. The Pirates, meanwhile, are missing their senior guard. Yesterday’s 69–61 loss to Richmond dropped them to 6–6, with a slew of games against ranked opponents on the horizon.
