2. Elijah Hutchins-Everett returns, the frontcourt is set
The frontcourt for this team had basically been Dre Davis and Jaden Bediako without much help behind them. But now, they have an added piece that came into the year with high expectations as a potential starter for these Seton Hall Pirates.
Elijah Hutchins-Everett, the transfer from Austin Peay made his debut for the Seton Hall Pirates in Waco. He only got 11 minutes in for this team, but he grabbed seven rebounds and scored four points in that short time, and showed flashes of what he could be.
If Seton Hall is able to get him to be a dominant rebounder in this Big East Conference, that will help them greatly against some of the other great big men in the conference. Bediako has been solid all season long, he had 10 points, four blocks, and six rebounds of his own, but he cannot do it all himself.
He and Hutchins-Everett can now develop more chemistry together with his return, and we will see what his role is against Rutgers. While this was not going to be the difference in whether or not Seton Hall beat Baylor, it was a great sign for the long-term outlook for this team’s season.
