Seton Hall survives late Xavier surge for fifth consecutive win

Seton Hall toppled Xavier by a final score of 83-71 to extend its winning streak to five in Cincinnati on Wednesday night.

An initially slow start to the night quickly turned...

Seton Hall survives Prairie View A&M to close out non-conference play

The opening atmosphere Sunday afternoon at the Prudential Center was lackadaisical at best, but by the end of Seton Hall’s come-from-behind 75-55 victory over Prairie View, every person in Pirate blue was on their feet applauding the efforts of their team. After pulling off what was made out to be an impossible victory over No. 7 Maryland on Thursday night, the Pirates looked devoid of energy and urgency to open the first half the...

Seton Hall suffers epic collapse in Battle 4 Atlantis loss to Oregon

A star-studded performance from Myles Powell was simply not enough for Seton Hall to take down No. 11 Oregon in the Battle 4 Atlantis on Thanksgiving eve. After playing well for most of the night, Seton Hall’s offense disappeared and the Pirates allowed Oregon to end the game on a 20-6 run that resulted in a 19-point comeback and 71-69 win for the Ducks. Up 54-37 following a barrage of threes from Powell, it looked like Seton Hall had...

Early-season stats look promising for women’s basketball team

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team is off to a hot start this year, holding Virginia Commonwealth University to just 33 points and narrowly losing by two points to Princeton at Walsh Gymnasium. Comparatively, and given that there is a small sample size to pull from at this point in the season, the Pirates are yet to reach the statistical levels they achieved last year. However, their current marks are nearly hitting the same...

Nelson, Rhoden confident heading into second year with Pirates

For Anthony Nelson and Jared Rhoden, there is no room for a “sophomore slump” heading into this season. Seton Hall is no longer the underdog team from last year; they are the early front-runners to win the Big East and potentially claim a Big East championship title that just alluded their grasp in last year’s final. For the Pirates to reach that pinnacle again, however, Rhoden and Nelson will have to build upon their momentums from...

Excitement within the Seton Hall women’s basketball team locker room is high after a sound preseason and undefeated start to the new season.

Bozzella has taken pride in the electrifying, offensive identity his team has developed under his reign, and they are now...

International student-athletes not...
