  • Jaren Sina Leaving Seton Hall (UPDATED)

    10363734Jaren Sina is leaving Seton Hall, according to a report from Jerry Carino of the Asbury Park Press.

    “I tried my best. I think I was a good teammate,” Sina told Carino. “I’ve always been positive. I’ve always worked hard. I always gave it 100 percent. It’s not a good situation for me right now. At the end of the day, I think it’s best for me and my family.”

    The 6-foot-2 sophomore guard out of Gill St. Bernard’s is averaging 7.0 points and 2.3 assists.

    “I appreciate all the hard work and determination Jaren has put into our program over the last two years,” Pirates head coach Kevin Willard said. “He is an outstanding young man, and I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

    The news comes as Seton Hall has lost six of eight games and the locker room is fractured, with Brandon Mobley recently calling out his teammates, saying, “Winning is not on everybody’s mind right now. Everyone’s focused on things besides winning. It’s up to the guys if they want to play the season out or play with a purpose.”

    Sina initially gave a verbal commitment to Alabama, then changed course and ultimately picked Seton Hall over Northwestern and Indiana in the spring of 2013.

    Now he will be on the move again.

    Sina will have to sit a year unless he gets a waiver and wouldn’t play until the 2016-17 season.
