Taal aces through collegiate transition, coaching carousel

For Melody Taal, education and sports have always had equal importance.

The transition began with a key decision between choosing to pursue professional tennis or attending a university. In the Netherlands, these two were mutually-exclusive; however, in the United States, she had the ability to...

Women’s basketball improved, but fell short of expectations

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team did not take a step back in the 2017-18 season, but the crushing defeat in the first round of the WNIT was not how the Pirates’ intended for it to finish. “That was extremely, extremely, extremely disappointing,” coach Tony Bozzella said after the 75-57 defeat to Saint Joseph’s on March 14. “A lot of credit to Saint Joe’s. They certainly came in with a good plan and executed really well.”...

Women’s basketball returns to Walsh Gym in WNIT first-round matchup

Before Seton Hall women’s basketball learned of its Women’s National Invitational Tournament first-round opponent, head coach Tony Bozzella and his staff were scouting and preparing. So, when Saint Joseph’s was announced as the school Seton Hall would line up against on March 14 at 7 p.m., the Pirates were ready. “I’m familiar with Saint Joe’s and the A-10 [Atlantic 10 Conference],” Bozzella said. “We had an idea of who we might play...

NBA smart to be proactive in potential gambling onset

The movement toward legalized sports gambling continues to grow stronger, and the topic continues to grow more relevant as the Supreme Court deals with a New Jersey-based case on the matter. The reality of legal sports betting is slowly becoming imminent and the National Basketball Association has recognized this by taking a definitive stance in benefitting from it. In late January, the NBA testified and requested to a New York State...

Pirates plunge to fourth straight loss as freshmen break through

Another slow start from Seton Hall and hot shooting from Trevon Bluiett led the Pirates to drop their fourth straight game to No. 4 Xavier on Wednesday night by a score of 102-90. The loss brings Seton Hall to a 17-9 record on the season and 6-7 in Big East play, good for sixth in the conference.

Unranked and unraveling

Seton Hall’s fall from grace has been a tumble, as the team has slid from the upper half of the AP Top-25 to sixth in the Big East. The Pirates are not living up to expectations of a Preseason Coaches’ Poll that chose them to finish second in the conference, ahead of a No. 4 Xavier that is on its way to a possible No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. As much as fans want to blame it on free throw shooting, that excuse fails to tell the...

Upsets may be telling of NCAA shakeup

Feb. 3 marked a momentous occasion in the college basketball world that has not been seen in more than a decade – Duke, Kansas and Kentucky, three of the most iconic schools in the NCAA landscape, lost on the same day. To highlight the rarity of this event, its last occurrence was in March 2005. While these teams have remained powerhouses after that, there is reason to believe these blueblood names may be about to go through more...
