SHU softball thriving on veteran-rookie dynamic

The Seton Hall softball team swept the Inaugural Pirate Invitational over the past weekend, winning all four contests it played in, and winning three by way of the mercy rule. The Pirates seemed confident, relaxed and poised after fighting off cold weather conditions to take down its opponents. The team returns several starters from last season, and has also added in a few key freshmen newcomers. The upperclassmen core, however, has...

Getting technical: Cousins suspension a bad sign in NBA conduct

In the NBA, technical fouls come about from ‘being extra’ on the court, whether it is due to a hard or unnecessary foul, an out-of-line verbal exchange or comment or simply doing something that does not benefit the natural play of the game. For the former Sacramento King and current New Orleans Pelican center DeMarcus Cousins, his game is all about being extra and over the top. It has been very much apparent over his seven-year NBA...

Baseball looking to continue momentum into new season

A new season begins Feb. 17 for Seton Hall baseball. The Pirates finished their 2016 campaign with a 38-20 record, going 23-6 at Owen T. Carroll Field and 10-8 in conference play, good enough to earn a spot in the Big East Tournament. The Pirates won seven of their last eight games before eventually losing out in the postseason, but the team is looking to maintain their solid standing after having several players break out and make an...

Women’s basketball allows 103 points in loss to Golden Eagles

Seton Hall women’s basketball fell handily in Milwaukee at the Al McGuire Center to Marquette on Friday by a score of 103-60 in a game that saw 60 percent of the Golden Eagles’ baskets go through the hoop.

Ventura’s death strikes raw feelings in MLB community

It seems far too soon, however the baseball community was once again impacted in a tragic way. Kansas City Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura was the victim of a fatal car accident in the Dominican Republic on Sunday, Jan. 22 at just 25 years of age. He joins the late Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez as the second pitcher under the age of 25 to pass away in the last four months. Fernandez was killed in a boating accident the morning of...

Women’s basketball keeping up morale over six-game skid

Making three straight NCAA Tournament appearances is not an easy task. Now, more than ever, that feat seems increasingly unlikely for the Seton Hall women’s basketball team. After all that Tabatha Richardson-Smith did during her time at Seton Hall, as well as the contributions of transfers Aleesha Powell and Shakena Richardson last season, and the duo of Daisha and Ka-Diedre Simmons the year before that, head coach Tony Bozzella...

Pirates battle back from deficit, can’t overcome Marquette

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team cut a 23-point deficit to three late in the fourth quarter, but the effort was ultimately not enough, as the Pirates remained winless in 2017 after falling to Marquette 83-77 on Thursday at Walsh Gymnasium. The Pirates (8-7, 1-4 Big East) have now dropped their fourth straight contest in conference play after defeating St. John’s in their opener. Claire Lundberg scored 18 points for Seton Hall,...

Family focus comforts, motivates SHU swimmer

A transition into college and Divison I athletics can either go one of two ways: well, or not so well. For freshman swimmer Sara Ouellette, the transition to the pool has gone better than usual. She has already won events in the 200 meter freestyle, the 100 and 200 meter butterfly, 200 meter backstroke and the 200 meter medley relay this season. Outside of the pool in the college landscape, however, Ouellette has already seen the...
