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...
