According to this story in today's Las Cruces Sun-News, it looks like former Aliquippa standout and noted basketball vagabond Herb Pope is taking his game to Seton Hall.
The story says, among other things:
* Pope said he also received interest from Duquesne, Pittsburgh, Boston College, Robert Morris and West Virginia. But it was Seton Hall that had an available scholarship and Pope said the other pieces fit as well.
* Pope said he made his decision in the last two days. He said he hopes to receive a waiver from the NCAA in order to play immediately.
* "I have family matters back home and I wanted to get closer to the east coast," Pope said. "I am a father and I want to get closer to my daughter because I don't want her to go through the same things that I went through."
