NEWARK, NJ - At Wednesday night’s Seton Hall-Providence men’s basketball game at Prudential Center, Seton Hall had a special guest join the team as an honorary captain: 13-year-old Will Cody of Chatham, who has been battling leukemia since March 2016.

Cody participated in pregame warmups, was in the locker room with the team, presented the game ball to the officials, sat on the team bench during the game and was given the game ball by head coach Kevin Willard after the Pirates’ 72-70 overtime victory.

Cody was active in playing travel hockey, CYO basketball and tennis prior to his diagnosis. He underwent intense, 10-month chemotherapy and is currently being treated in a “maintenance phase” that lasts for three years. The treatments limit his ability to go to school for just two to three hours a day.
