Take a seat: Why NBA teams are resting their stars

On March 11, the Golden State Warriors touched down in Texas for a big matchup with the San Antonio Spurs, the team riding their coattails at the top of the Western Conference. The game was highly anticipated and was set to broadcast on national television. However, the draw of the game quickly evaporated, as Warriors head coach Steve Kerr elected to bench star players Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala...

Strunk shuts down Hartford in 8-0 victory

Pitcher Madison Strunk allowed just two hits on Sunday afternoon as the Pirates shut out Hartford 8-0 at Mike Sheppard Sr. Field.

With runners on first and third, the Pirates executed a picture perfect double steal that brought Valerie Suto home from third to put the Pirates up 1-0. It was in the third inning when...

Myles Powell’s shooting the key to Pirates’ success

If you’ve sat down to watch the Seton Hall Pirates play basketball at any point this season, there are some evident trends that stand out. We have come to expect domination in the post by Angel Delgado, the proclaimed best big man in the Big East, as he crashes the glass with great strength, tallying up double-doubles. We have come to expect Khadeen Carrington putting on an offensive show, consistently scoring more than 20 points per...

Derek Jenkins adjusting to life in the pros

It was just last spring when former Seton Hall outfielder Derek Jenkins led the nation with 52 stolen bases on his way to being named to the All-Big East First Team. Just a few weeks after a senior season in which he hit .299 and drove in 35 runs to go along with the massive stolen base total, Jenkins was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the 26th round on the MLB Draft. All of a sudden, a dream had become a reality....

Pirates routed by Georgetown, drop third straight

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team couldn’t find any answers on Friday night inside Walsh Gymnasium, losing to the Georgetown Hoyas by a score of 77-60.

Dani duo, recruits bring hope to women’s soccer

Last season was another rough campaign for Rick Stainton and the women’s soccer team, finishing with a 5-11-1 record and a 1-8 record in Big East play. Though the record may not look pretty, it was Stainton’s best season at the helm of the club since being named head coach before the start of the 2014 season. Stainton’s team is young, as it will be losing just five players to graduation, two of which were key members of last season’s...

NFL Pro Bowl needs to pick up ratings or shut down

On Jan. 29, the AFC and NFC squared off in the annual NFL Pro Bowl. What transpired was actually a somewhat competitive game, in which players actually seemed to care a little bit about the outing at hand. It would ultimately be the AFC who came out on top with a 20-13 victory. Then Monday came, and the ratings for the game were released. To put it mildly, it wasn’t too pretty. The Pro Bowl this year drew a 4.6 overnight rating,...

Chargers, Raiders relocations reveal dark side of NFL

Let’s rewind to just a little over a year ago. The date was Jan. 4, 2016, the day after the end of the 2015 NFL regular season. This was the day on which three teams, the St. Louis Rams, Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers, all filed for relocation to Los Angeles. Ultimately, the Rams were granted the rights to move to L.A., while the other two teams were left in their original cities. Until now. The Chargers announced on Jan. 12...

Slow starts plaguing Pirates

College basketball is a 40-minute game. From the initial tip to the final buzzer, every play matters when deciding the outcome. Lately, it seems as if the Seton Hall men’s basketball team hasn’t gotten the memo. It all began during the matchup with Rutgers on Dec. 23. The Hall’s lackluster shooting in the first half resulted in a nine-point deficit at halftime to a defensive-minded but inferior Scarlet Knights team. It took a valiant...

Success for women’s basketball relies on resiliency

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team is young but it has also proven to be tough. This team is resilient, and it has shown in the early going. The Pirates began the season overlooked, picked to finish seventh in the Big East after losing four starters, including WNBA draft pick Shakena Richardson. While things haven’t been perfect this season so far, the, inexperienced team has opened some eyes. “We’re young, so we have to be...
