Pirates proving more mature in 2015-16

  That time of year for the men’s basketball team is bouncing into town again. We all know the story. We remember what happened like it was yesterday (or just last year, whichever you prefer). A hot start to the season, two back-to-back wins against ranked opponents Villanova and St. John’s, and, eventually, a Top 25 ranking. Then, just as fast as the jubilation had swept through South Orange, it was gone. A year ago, the Pirates...

Family key to Bozzella’s coaching

  “We’re moving.” Those were the words Maria Bozzella heard through her phone on Monday, March 25, 2013, while she sat at the bank she worked for in Long Island, N.Y. On the other end of the phone call was her husband, Tony Bozzella. Emotions rushed through Maria, and she knew what her husband was trying to tell her. “Oh my god,” she said. “They offered it?” “Yeah,” Bozzella replied. What the two were talking about was the dream...

Men’s basketball displays dominant, balanced effort against Saint Peter’s

  On a Sunday afternoon in the Prudential Center, the men’s basketball team blew out Saint Peter’s 72-46 to improve to 8-2 on the season.

From the four minute mark in the first half the Pirates went on a heavily...

And if that was not enough to fill his workload, he also happens to be SHU’s top cross country runner. Ricci understands his workload is a bit heavier...

Women’s coach Tony Bozzella – 2014 Big East Coach of the Year – and men’s coach Kevin Willard understand their importance to the school. When basketball season rolls around in South Orange, all eyes turn toward these two...

Chambers’ Comeback: NBA contracts trending towards ridiculous

  The NBA regular season tipped off Tuesday night when the players finally returned to on-court action. But the season that allows those players the opportunity to even shoot a jump shot began over the summer. That season is referred to as free agency. This past July the NBA free agency period saw ridiculous summer action, to the point where one could figure that most player’s agents walked into the negotiating room and yelled...

Men’s soccer’s struggles continue after losses

  The Seton Hall men’s soccer team has yet to chalk up a victory on the season. Nine matches into the year, the Pirates are 0-8-1 and rank dead last in shots and points in the Big East. While definitely unsatisfying, the campaign has not been all doom and gloom. SHU has gotten shut out just twice and has shown some serious fight in the biggest contests of the year. But each time, the team has still come up short. After dropping a...
