Steady bench production needed for Seton Hall to contend

The Seton Hall men’s basketball team enter the 2018-19 regular season with many questions that need to be answered and many new faces entering the fold. While the Big East preseason coaches’ poll indicated a transition year for the Pirates, the bench production for this year’s team hopes to aid the gap left behind by last year’s senior class. In the 2017-18, depth was one of the better parts of the men’s basketball team. Due to...

Women’s basketball success potentially higher than poll ranking

The Big East Preseason Coaches’ Poll for women’s basketball can be misleading to the depth that returns to the hardwood for the Seton Hall Pirates this season. The team acquired three transfers from talented programs that includes a former five-star recruit who has been recently made eligible to play this season. The top two teams from last year, who split the conference’s regular season trophy, are returning a similar number of...

Former walk-on now wears the coveted pink shirt

The path to becoming a routine starter for volleyball has been anything but clear for Miranda Higginbotham. One of Seton Hall volleyball’s unsung heroes, the fiery competitor has seen her game blossom from being a walk-on in her freshman year to a crucial role as a starting libero and defensive specialist. Not even expecting to play her freshman year as a recruited walk-on, Higginbotham earned playing time as a defensive specialist....

Underclassmen performances lead the way for cross country

Seton Hall cross country head coach John Moon can rightfully be optimistic about the future due to the tremendous efforts by the young but talented freshmen and sophomores on his team. Just as recently as the UMES Cappy Anderson Invitational on Sept. 22, the women came away with a victory as Emma Newgarden secured the fastest overall time at the meet. The freshman standout has felt the physical adjustment of running at the collegiate...

Men’s soccer home opener will prove to be an important barometer

The Seton Hall men’s soccer team has had an exceptional start to the 2018 season thus far.

In his inaugural season in charge, head coach Andreas Lindberg has completely transformed the outlook of a team that lost nine seniors last season, one that features nine new...

Seton Hall, unable to react in time, was not in position to head away the first cross of the game. Sienna capitalized on the kick directed from the left of the...
