Seton Hall survived against Stony Brook on Saturday afternoon in Newark, but it came at a price.

Myles Powell, the Pirates’ senior All-American guard, went down with a left ankle injury five minutes into the game and did not return.

After the game, Kevin Willard did not sound optimistic when discussing his star player, saying that the team is going to be cautious with him.

“It’s not a one-to-two game thing,” Willard told reporters, adding that this could be a “prolonged absence” and that there is “more than likely no chance for Thursday.”

That date is relevant because 12th-ranked Pirates play host to No. 1 Michigan State on Thursday.

That’s unfortunate.
