The Seton Hall Pirates men's basketball program will be without sophomore point guard Aaron Cosby for 4-6 weeks because of a knee injury, CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman is reporting. Cosby earned a starting spot last season and was expected to be the player to help overcome the loss of Jordan Theodore.
Last season as a freshman, Cosby (6'2, 190 pounds) started in 34 of Seton Hall's 37 games, averaging 7.9 points and made 37.7-percent of his 3-point attempts. Cosby is also the Pirates top passing guard as he leads all returners with 48 career assists.
In his place Seton Hall will turn to a trio of guards: sophomore Haralds Karlis (6'5, 185), sophomore Freddie Wilson (6'2, 175) and freshman Tom Maayan (6'1, 180).
The Pirates begin their 2012-13 season on Nov. 9 when they host the University of Missouri-Kansas City at Walsh Gymnasium. The game is schedule to begin at 7:30 p.m.
