On a day when Seton Hall lost to St. Peter's, things could get worse for Kevin Willard's squad.
Leading scorer Sterling Gibbs injured his knee toward the end of regulation, and it doesn't seem like the Pirates are optimistic.
“We'll know more after he gets his MRI tomorrow, but it doesn't look good,” Willard told reporters after the game, according to @DalyDoseOfHoops.

Gibbs crashed into bodies going for the game-tying shot, tumbled into the front row and immediately went down. They're looking at his R knee— Brendan Prunty (@BrendanPrunty) December 14, 2013

Gibbs, a 6-foot-2 point guard from New Jersey, is averaging 16.0 points and 4.1 assists for Seton Hall this season. He transferred to the Pirates after spending his freshman campaign at Texas.
Seton Hall is now 7-4 on the season, with losses to St. Peter's, Fairleigh Dickinson, Mercer and Oklahoma.
