High school hoops prospects taking unconventional paths

The formula was the same for so long: Play well in AAU and high school, go to a Division I program, and continue to grow and develop for one to four years before entering the NBA Draft. The cookie-cutter path followed by countless greats of the game seemed to be the optimal track to a professional career, save for a short stint of high school players making the jump to the league prior to the “one-and-done” rule. In the last few years...

Instant classic goes against the Pirates as late comeback falls short

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team suffered their first defeat of the season at home tonight in an 85-83 loss to Princeton. After trailing by as much as 12 with three minutes remaining, the Pirates fought back, but could not secure a lead in the final minutes as a buzzer-beating three by Pirates guard Inja Butina ended the game with the Hall just two points short. The two teams traded leads ten times throughout the duration of the...

Seton Hall transfers among Big East’s best

A hot 2-0 start featuring both a home and away win has shown that the Seton Hall women’s basketball team is playing well, but the Pirates’ record is only half of the story. Something is different about this squad and the way that the returning players have blended with transfers and the freshmen. “A huge part of the changes is the attitudes,” head coach Tony Bozzella said. “KK [Hilare], Jayla [Jones-Pack], and Quanny [Jackson], and...

SHU shows scoring, defense and depth in season-opening win over Saint Peter’s

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team kicked off its season with a home victory over Saint Peter’s University by a score of 91-49. Both sides struggled early, with the Pirates missing their first ten field goals and Saint Peter’s shooting around 20 percent near the end of the first quarter. “Obviously we were a little nervous to start. We got a lot of new kids,” coach Tony Bozzella said. “We start the game 1-14, but in the past, we’d...

Cale relies on teammates to overcome early obstacles

The transition from high school basketball player to collegiate athlete can be a difficult jump, especially when one has to recover from a shoulder injury the first month on campus. Myles Cale had long awaited his arrival in South Orange, but had to wait a little longer to take the court due to the setback. “It was a lot. It was nerve-wracking at first,” the freshman from Delaware said. “You get frustrated, but you got to fight...

Grievance all but shuts door on Kaepernick NFL return

As NFL owners prepared to meet on Oct. 17 to discuss recent league issues, a groundbreaking update on free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick may very easily have skyrocketed the meeting’s already paramount importance. Speculation of Kaepernick being on a NFL blacklist has been discussed inside NFL circles, but came to the forefront when Kaepernick filed a grievance against the league for collusion in the form of keeping him from...

Banning Russia is not the answer to latest scandal

Discoveries by the International Olympic Council have put Russia in the negative spotlight once again, with allegations surfacing dating back to 2014 that reveal how Russia may have tampered with urine samples that would have otherwise failed anti-doping procedures. The penalties that are being speculated for the Russian federation involve as steep a penalty as banishment, something that is too harsh in my estimation. While the Sochi...

Women’s Volleyball digs deep to find early success

After last season’s 1-4 start for the Seton Hall women’s volleyball team, the Pirates have turned things around in impressive fashion, jumping out to a 4-2 record. While a variety of factors have contributed to the team’s success, a notable trend has been its results in contests that last longer than three sets. The Pirates are 3-1 in matches that are four sets or longer, including two five-set wins. In shorter matches the Pirates...

U.S. Soccer gap between pay and gender still a problem

In March 2016, a handful of notable members of the women’s national team filed a complaint against United States Soccer protesting the pay disparity between the men’s and women’s national teams. Despite the different pay structures organized by the players association of each team and each collective bargaining agreement, the discrepancy was evident in a number of financial notes and statistics. After more than a year of conflict,...
