Aiken, who is a New Jersey native, was limited to just seven games last season due to a sprained foot. Despite that, he did impress in limited time, averaging 16.7 points before the injury. This came one season after earning first-team All-Ivy League honors when he posted 22.2 points per game and averaged 39.8 percent from three-point range in 2018-2019. He posted in double figures during all four seasons with Harvard, averaging 16..8 points during his time there. He will be filling big shoes, taking over for Myles Powell, who was an All-American with 21.0 points per game. They are hoping to stay on track, as Seton Hall won a share of the Big East regular season title and recorded 20 victories for a fifth straight season.
In another minor transfer, Alex O'Connell is moving on from the Duke Blue Devils, also joining the Big East with the Creighton Blue Jays. The shooting guard was a reserve during all three seasons with the ACC powerhouse, but had his most productive season last year with a career-best 5.2 points per game. He was known as a three-point shooter coming out of high school, but has struggled from beyond the arc, including a 27.3 percent mark last year.
