Herb Pope expected to return next season

According to Adam Zagoria, Seton Hall big man Herb Pope will be able to return to the court next year after collapsing after a workout this spring.

Seton Hall sophomore forward Herb Pope expects to play for the Pirates next season after collapsing April 30 during a workout.

“He was discharged [from St. Barnabas Medical Center],” said a source with direct knowledge who requested anonymity. “He is looking forward to getting back on the court to train. He will be playing for Seton Hall basketball next season.”

Pope averaged 11 and 11 last season with 2 blocks a game, which will automatically make him one of the better big men in the Big East this coming season.

It also makes Seton Hall a legit player in the conference under first year coach Kevin Willard. Jeff Robinson and Jeremy Hazzel also return along with Jordan Theodore and Keon Lawrence to form a solid nucleus.
