300 Words Or Less: Gibbs Exit at Seton Hall Kicks More Dirt On Willard

300 Words Or Less: Gibbs Exit at Seton Hall Kicks More Dirt On Willard
BY JOEY WAHLER

Seton Hall University’s motto is Hazard Zet Forward, meaning “at whatever risk, yet forward.”

Upon hearing Tuesday of Sterling Gibbs’ impending transfer from coach Kevin Willard’s basketball team, a Hall alum buddy of mine described it most aptly.

Willard Zet Backward.

Translated, as former Knick Michael Ray Richardson once said of his plummeting team, “The ship be sinking.”

The transfers of Jaren Sina in February and now Gibbs cost the Pirates two upperclassmen for next season. With three seniors last year, Willard often blamed lack of experience for his team’s January implosion.

Willard now has no seniors next season, and his lone junior is incoming transfer Braeden Anderson. So there are no returning upperclassmen, four fewer than last year.

Two years ago, Willard needed some, uh, creativity to land his first heralded recruiting class. Namely, giving assistant coaching jobs to Oliver Antigua, Angel Delgado’s coach in the Dominican Republic, and Tiny Morton, Isaiah Whitehead’s coach at Lincoln High.
