Myles Powell went down injured early, but Romaro Gill’s massive second half propelled No. 12 Seton Hall past upset-minded Stony Brook, 74-57.
Powell was forced out of the game after just three minutes with what head coach Kevin Willard called a “pretty good ankle sprain.” The severity of the injury is uncertain – teammates said Powell was walking around and moving in the locker room, but Willard warned of a “prolonged” absence of “more than one or two games.”
That all but rules out the preseason All-American against No. 1 Michigan State, a crushing blow to a team that struggled to find its feet without Powell on the floor.
