Seton Hall senior shooting guard Jeremy Hazell broke the scaphoid bone in his left wrist in Seton Hall’s 83-78 victory over Alabama Friday in the opening round game of the 2010 U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam.
The 6-foot-5 All-America candidate is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks while the injury heals.
“Jeremy has been playing on such a high level to start the season and we feel bad for this to happen to him,” head coach Kevin Willard said. “This however, is an excellent opportunity for his teammates to step up.”
Hazell has averaged 24.0 points per game through the season’s first three games. He scored a game-high 27 points in the Pirates’ victory over Alabama.
Seton Hall faces Xavier in the Paradise Jam semis Sunday.
