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...

Pirates fall despite near comeback in rubber match vs. LIU-Brooklyn

It was a beautiful sunny day at Owen T. Carroll field in South Orange as the Seton Hall Pirates faced off against LIU-Brooklyn in the final game of their three-game series Sunday, and lost, 2-1.

Seton Hall had no other hits and no runs with four strikeouts through three...

Stealing bases no longer a Seton Hall specialty

In 2016, the Seton Hall baseball team was nationally known for stealing bases. As the No. 1 team in the country in that category, the Pirates made their mark on the NCAA. Stealing bases is a unique advantage to have over opposing teams. Singles become doubles, and a walk could turn into a runner in scoring position without even touching the ball at the plate. That being said, whether Seton Hall could keep this advantage for the 2017...

Bozzella talks Pirates’ losing season, ‘inconsistency’

Women’s basketball coach Tony Bozzella has changed the program around in the last three seasons.

However, this season was different for Bozzella, who coached a young team to a 12-19 record. Bozzella admitted it was a hard season to get through and the season was not up to the program’s new...

Phil Jackson, please resign

The New York Knicks have been the laughing stock of the National Basketball Association for years now. The last respectable season was the 2012-13 campaign when the team lost in six games to the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Although not a magical ending, Knick fans would love to go back to that season where they went 26 games over .500 and grabbed the third seed in the East. Since then, they have a 108-192...

As Seton Hall men’s basketball enters the most vital part of its schedule, the team needs to play the best basketball it has in order to put itself in position for the NCAA Tournament. Last year the Pirates finished the regular season with 22 wins. For Seton Hall to do the same this season, it would have to win all of its games the rest of the way. However, with weaker small conference teams than previous seasons and the Big East...
