Butler a worthy trade for 76ers

The Minnesota chapter of Jimmy Butler’s career has finally come to an end and while a reunion with Tom Thibodeau sounded the part, his longtime head coach decided that it was time for both parties to move on. After weeks of evaluating offers from a multitude of teams, the Timberwolves elected to pull the trigger on a deal that included young players with upside and draft capital. The Philadelphia 76ers acquired Butler and Justin...

After sitting out all of last season due to NCAA transfer rules, Thompson is ready to play a large role for the Pirates in 2018-19. After losing four starters this past offseason, Kevin Willard is hopeful that his new-look Pirates will...

Pirates pick up crucial conference win over Butler

The Seton Hall men’s soccer team completed a crucial come-from-behind victory, 2-1, on the road against Butler University on Wednesday night. The Pirates, though victorious, were playing from behind for almost the entirety of the first half of play. In the 4th minute, Butler found the back of the net and held the lead until the break. The Pirates wasted no time in the second half, though, as CJ Tibbling struck gold for the first time...

It’s too early to determine the NBA’s Power Rankings

The inaugural games of the 2018-19 NBA season are officially in the books. The Boston Celtics defeated the Philadelphia 76ers, 105-87, and the Golden State Warriors edged out the Oklahoma City Thunder, 108-100, on Tuesday night.

Neutral territory favors the Pirates

After playing only four of its 10 matches in front of a home crowd, Seton Hall’s women’s volleyball team dropped two games under .500 after a loss to Princeton University on Tuesday night. Now 4-6 on the year, the team’s record does not reflect the hand that it has been dealt. Head coach Allison Yaeger’s squad had to kick off the season with three straight three-match series: one in New York, one back home in South Orange and one in...
