Seton Hall fans take to Twitter to voice appreciation to seniors following NCAA Tournament exit

Seton Hall men’s basketball fans had some time before the final buzzer rang on Saturday to digest that the four-year run for a transformative group of players, and men, was over.

Khadeen Carrington, Angel Delgado, Desi Rodriguez and Ismael Sanogo all stepped off the court as Pirates for the final time after the team’s 83-79 loss to Kansas in Wichita, Kan.

With their collegiate careers now over, fans and media members took to Twitter to show their appreciation for the four student-athletes who will graduate in May.

One player who may not be with the team on the court, but whose presence is still felt, is Isaiah Whitehead. He took to Twitter following the game to state what he thinks of the four who stepped off the college court for the final time on Saturday

Carrington left it all on the court in his final game wearing the blue and white, registering a 26-point second half and coming up with timely shots. Afterward, he voiced on Twitter how proud he was to be a Seton Hall Pirate, with fans responding with their appreciation for his effort.

While disappointment and heartbreak may be felt in the aftermath of the loss, the main feeling from Seton Hall fans is an immense pride and gratitude for what these Seton Hall seniors accomplished while on campus.

As coach Kevin Willard said after the game, their legacy will live on.
