When Kadari entered the Richmond transfer portal, Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard did not hesitate and is now gone.
Brooklyn is Willard’s main defender, the coach said. That wasn’t the case in Syracuse in Richmond’s only hopeless year with an orange.
“I can feel like I’m on my own, I can play my game freely and I can make decisions [on the court]”Richmond said after training in South Orange on Thursday, NJ.” It didn’t make sense for me to stay until the end because I didn’t really play. [as much as I wanted].
“I felt I could position myself properly [at Seton Hall]. “
Seton Hall added two more interesting transfers – physical striker Alexis Yenta from South Florida and American Jamir Harris, along with the return of healthy Bruce Ayken. But Richmond, a 6-foot-6 guard, has the potential to secure a return to the NCAA tournament after the Pirates suffered a painful defeat in March last year, and has been in the NBA’s top three in the NBA ever since. lost player Sandro Mamukelashvili.
The first, second-year student fills the void, a point that broke a once-hopeful season for Seton Hall. Ayken’s injury-related campaign (he only featured in 14 games) forced Shawar Reynolds to do so. Willard praised the former walker in a situation that was not suitable for him, but that severely limited Seton Hall. The previous four-star, top-100 newly hired Richmondi is now, this time not a problem.
“I’m very happy to have a guard who can find me open shots this year. It’s going to change a lot,” big star Jared Roden said. “It creates a lot more simple things in the transition period and on the offensive side of the game.”
During his year in Syracuse, Richmond averaged 6.3 points, 3.1 assists and 1.6 assists per game in 21.0 minutes. Coming out of the back seat, he helped the orange reach “Sweet 16”. But playing behind Joseph Girar III left a bitter taste in his mouth and he wanted more. At Seton Hall, he will be given the opportunity to continue the Brooklyn Guards ’NCAA tournament tradition of robbers.
Richmond knows two of them, Isaiah Whitehead and Kedin Carrington, who loved going to New Jersey school. Now it was his turn.
“I feel worthy because all the guys in town have been successful here, so I haven’t seen how I couldn’t succeed,” Richmond said. “It’s up to me to take the opportunity.”
