Delaware shuts out Seton Hall to end winning streak

Seton Hall took on Delaware at Owen T. Carroll Field Wednesday night, with the Blue Hens putting in a goal in each half, and the Pirates being unable to produce similar resilience from games past, as Delaware prevailed 2-0.

The Blue Hens were quick with their offense and moved the ball efficiently to get eight shots in the first half....

Women’s soccer adjusting into Big East play

Seton Hall women’s soccer team has struggled early this season, going 0-4-2 in out-of-conference play. The root of the team’s problem is as simple as the purpose of the game: score. With only three goals on 49 shots, the Pirates are shooting a six percent success rate, while their opponent are just over 18 percent. The opportunities have been there in many games. In the team’s latest 1-0 loss to Marist at Owen T. Carroll Field, the...

The goal was one of Marist’s three shots in the half, as Seton Hall tripled its output with nine shots, but with none...

Success starting at the plate for SHU’s win streak

In its past six games, Seton Hall baseball is averaging more than nine runs per game with four of those resulting in double-digit runs scored. It is no coincidence that each of those five games resulted in a win for the Pirates, who now look to finish out their schedule in the same way with hopes of reaching the Big East Tournament. Each game has had a different story line. However, there are some consistencies. In each of the six...

Prendergast’s nine strikeouts give Pirates series sweep over Georgetown

Seton Hall baseball had the bats going in its 10-5 win over Georgetown Sunday to complete the series sweep as Zach Prendergast took care of business on the mound.

Westbrook’s historic season should be admired rather than critiqued

Russell Westbrook is on the verge of completing one of the most legendary seasons in NBA history, as he is about to finish the year averaging a triple-double in scoring, rebounds and assists. This feat has only been completed one time in the league’s history, when Oscar Robertson did it in 1964. Clearly, this is an extraordinary task, which some of the best players in the history of the game have never achieved. In Michael Jordan’s...
