“I’ll be going back on the road to recruit Thursday so this was an opportunity on the calendar to attend a game and support the team,” Lavin said in a statement. “I will continue a modified schedule with duties that include being at practices, recruiting the 2012 class and attending certain games.”
NEWARK — Even as his team took a 13-point halftime lead on No. 8 UConn Tuesday night at The Prudential Center, Jordan Theodore looked far from the best point guard in the Big East.
He dished six assists but went scoreless on 0-for-5 shooting.
Then with about 13 minutes left in the game, Theodore told his teammates, “My fault. I got it, don’t worry about it.”
The senior then proceeded to score all 19 of his points in the second half, hitting 3-of-5 from beyond the arc and going 8-for-8 at the line as Seton Hall stunned UConn, 75-63, for its first win over the Huskies since March 3, 2001.
