NJIT Host Seton Hall Saturday for Walker Foundation

The NJIT Highlanders will face the Seton Hall Pirates in an exhibition game for the Walker Foundation this Saturday at 4pm. The game will be played at NJIT in Newark with all ticket proceeds going to the Walker Foundation to help children. Tickets are 15 and 20 dollars and can be purchased online through NJIT or at the NJIT box office on the day of the game.

This is a great opportunity to get your first look at the Pirates and support a legendary Seton Hall alumni, who is making an impact in the community. Jerry Walker was a pivotal star on the PJ Carlesimo early 90’s teams. Jerry has been giving back to the community with the Walker Foundation in Jersey City. He does numerous toy drives for kids at the Prudential Center during the Seton Hall season before the holidays. He also does numerous fundraising activities throughout the year to help give children a safe place to participated in activities in Jersey City.

This charity exhibition is a collaboration of three Seton Hall alumni. When NJIT hired former Seton Hall alumni and assistant coach Grant Billmeier, he was looking to get Seton Hall on the schedule. Unfortunately, it was not able to fit in for a regular season game this year. Seton Hall was supposed to scrimmage West Virginia, but that fell through. Looking for a scrimmage, Grant Billmeier reached out to an old friend, Shaheen Holloway. They were able to arrange an exhibition game with the proceeds benefiting the Walker Foundation.

This is a great opportunity to get a first look at the team and also support two former Seton Hall alumni. Tip-off is at 4pm. Onward Setonia, the new Seton Hall NIL collective will be hosting a chalk talk with coach Holloway before the game at NJIT. The chalk talk is from 2-3:30pm inside the wellness center at NJIT.
