JaQuan Jackson inspiring Pirates

Hopes are high for the Seton Hall women’s basketball team after a 6-1 start this season. The reason for good spirits around Tony Bozzella’s crew has not just been the on-court results, but also the off-court development of one of the Pirates’ most talented players in JaQuan Jackson. The redshirt senior was named co-captain with redshirt sophomore Kaity Healy at the start of the season after spending one year with the team. Now,...

Early on the afternoon of Nov. 26, it appeared that Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano was set to become the new head coach of the University of Tennessee football team after coach Butch Jones was fired.

Three games aren’t enough to judge Carrington at point guard

Going into the 2017-18 season, one of the biggest question marks surrounding the Seton Hall men’s basketball team was how senior Khadeen Carrington would adjust to the full-time point guard role with Madison Jones gone. Three games into the season, Carrington has put up a total of 15 assists and has shot 45 percent from the field. He totaled six assists in the season opener against Fairleigh Dickinson on Nov. 10 on Sunday against...

Bozzella has sky-high confidence in high-flying Jones-Pack

When center Lubirdia Gordon left the women’s basketball program at the end of last season a 6-foot-4 inch hole was left in the heart of the Pirates’ roster. With Gordon’s departure, the Pirates were also presented with the statistical void of 8.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. With that all said, last season the Pirates struggled mightily on the boards last season, finishing last in the Big East in defensive rebounds and rebounding...

Recent firings show MLB’s cutthroat mentality

Many people will say that what one does in the regular season means nothing once the postseason comes around. That has been the thought process of three playoff organizations in 2017. The Yankees, Red Sox and Nationals have all fired their managers after reaching the postseason this year. John Farrell of the Red Sox and Dusty Baker of the Nationals were let go after their teams fell in their respective league division series’, while...

Past motivations play into aspirations for Seton Hall’s Thelen

Abby Thelen began playing volleyball at the age of 12, participating on club teams in her native Fort Mitchell, Ky. The sport soon became her passion. However, volleyball served up its obstacles like the one delivered to her at age 14, when she was cut from her club team. Suddenly, Thelen was out of her element; off the court, and not liking it one bit. Instead of accepting defeat, Thelen used the experience to fuel her fire and...

Pangonis making a difference for men’s soccer

With 83 minutes gone in an Oct. 7 match at Owen T. Carroll Field, Seton Hall and DePaul remained knotted at 1-1. The game seemed destined for overtime. That all changed, however, when a header found the foot of Lukas Pangonis, who knocked home the game-winner from point-blank range to give the Pirates a thrilling 2-1 win. This was uncharted territory for Pangonis, a defenseman and one that was 4,973 minutes in the making. The...

Granite personifying Seton Hall baseball in the big leagues

Former Seton Hall baseball player Zack Granite’s MLB career may be just three months old, but in the eyes of those who donned the Pirate blue after him, he might as well be a star. Some new faces who look up to him in this year’s SHU baseball team, as well as some old faces that mentored him, showed up at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday, Sept. 19, to spend some time with the former Seton Hall Pirate. The moment proved to be a special one...

NBA’s new schedule creates a more watchable league

The NBA has had a schedule problem for many seasons, but this year, it finally addressed it. In recent years, the NBA schedule was full of teams with obscenely large travel schedules, back-to-back games and three games in four nights. It became too much and teams began resting their players during some of these road trips and back-to-backs. What did that create? Well, take for example the March 11, 2017, game between the Golden State...

‘Grit’ has led Rutkowski from injury plagued season to first-place finishes

When the Seton Hall women’s cross country team began its 2015 campaign, it was without Christiana Rutkowski. She missed her sophomore season due to injury, and for the first time in her cross country career, she was unable to compete, to train, to do the thing she loves most: run. Rutkowski eventually fought her way back in time for the 2016 season, one that she was grateful to simply be a part of. “I didn’t have a great cross country...

Pirates’ bats silenced in loss to St. John’s

With their Big East Tournament hopes hanging in the balance, the Pirates got off on the wrong foot Saturday afternoon with a 2-1 loss to the St. John’s Red Storm. Offense has been the story for the Pirates this season, but on Saturday it was the exact opposite, as the offense could only muster one hit on the day. That hit was a solo home run off the bat of Noel Lent in the fourth inning which put the Pirates up 1-0 at the time. Seton...
