  • Glover Injunction Denied

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Michael Glover’s career at Seton Hall appears to be over.

    Glover’s motions for a restraining order were denied Tuesday, according to the court documents: “TEXT ORDER denying 2 Motion for TRO. So Ordered by Judge William E Smith on 8/29/2008. (Geile, Wendy) (Entered: 08/29/2008).

    “The NCAA carefully reviewed Mr. Glover’s academic qualifications to determine if he was eligible to compete in college sports his first year of college,” Erik Christianson of the NCAA said in an email. “That process involved several reviews, and ultimately he was deemed a nonqualifier for his first year of college.”

    It’s unclear where Glover goes from here. JUCO? Overseas? The NBA?

    In other Seton Hall news, Herb Pope, a 6-foot-8 transfer from New Mexico State, was on campus Tuesday registering for classes, according to a source close to the program. Classes begin today.

    Pope averaged 11.1 points and 6.8 rebounds last season and said he transferred to Seton Hall to be closer to his family — including a daughter and younger brother and sister — in Alquippa, Pa.. He hopes to secure a waiver from the NCAA that would allow him to play this year, as opposed to sitting out a season.

    “My hope is that it goes through, but it’s up to the NCAA,” Pope told the Las Cruces Sun-News. “I’m prepared to sit out this year if that’s what it takes. I’m not the same person as my days in high school and I’m looking forward to moving on with my career.”

    Missouri transfer Keon Lawrence also hopes to obtain a waiver to play this season.

    “The waiver has to come from Compliance,” said Lawrence’s advisor Alif Muhammad. “Seton Hall has to apply for it.”
