Seton Hall men’s basketball point guard Jordan Theodore will face gun possession charges, according to SNY’s Adam Zagoria.
Zagoria’s post on his blog, zagsblog.com stated that a New Jersey judge ruled that there was probable cause that Theodore was in possession of a handgun on school grounds following the Pirate’s game vs. Villanova on Feb. 15.
Theodore was seen being questioned by police in Xavier Hall’s resident director’s office following the team’s return to campus.
Zagoria also states “the incident followed an alleged attack on Theodore’s mother by a family member of former Seton Hall guard Keon Lawrence in the stands of the Prudential Center during the game.”
