Seton Hall overcomes turnover bug to continue record Big East start against St. John’s

Another day, another come from behind victory for Seton Hall. Three days after turning in its cleanest performance of the season against Butler, it looked like the turnover bug was going to get the best of Seton Hall against St. John’s at Madison Square Garden. The Pirates turned the ball over 15 times in the first half and trailed 43-30 at halftime. In typical Seton Hall fashion, it refused to go away without a fight. The Pirates put...

Seton Hall comes from behind to knock off No. 5 Butler

Something special is brewing in South Orange. Down 10 at the end of the first half with nothing working offensively, Seton Hall found itself tasked with coming from behind by double digits Hinkle Fieldhouse against a top-five Butler squad. Instead of rolling over and succumbing to a stifling Butler defense, the Pirates did what they do best. They fought back. Sparked by dominant play in the paint by Romaro Gill, timely scores by Myles...

Seton Hall fights past Marquette for sixth consecutive win

Physical, hard-nosed basketball. That is the name of the game whenever Seton Hall and Marquette take the floor. Saturday’s matinee affair did not disappoint in that regard. For 40 minutes, the Pirates and the Golden Eagles duked it out in front of a capacity Prudential Center crowd that provided a March-like atmosphere. The end result? Seton Hall’s sixth straight win, fourth straight conference victory and third straight triumph over...

Defensive dominance propels Seton Hall to signature win over No. 7 Maryland

Remember the lifeless and offensively incompetent Seton Hall team that took the floor against Rutgers last weekend? That version of the Pirates was nowhere to be found on Thursday night. Seton Hall locked in defensively for 40 minutes and garnered just enough offense to survive and secure itself a much-needed 52-48 signature win over No. 7 Maryland in its return to the Prudential Center. After getting shredded by a Rutgers squad known...

Seton Hall loses Sandro Mamukelashvili in ugly loss to Iowa State

There’s only one word that can sum up Seton Hall’s 76-66 loss to Iowa State on Sunday night. Ugly. The Pirates struggled to get going offensively throughout the night, shooting a mere 36% from the field and 26% from three against an Iowa State defense that gave up 84 points to Seton Hall last weekend in the Bahamas. Myles Powell finished with 19 points on 7-20 shooting before fouling out late in the second half, while...

Seton Hall bounces back with win over Southern Miss in Battle 4 Atlantis

Less than 24 hours after an excruciating loss to Oregon, Seton Hall was back to its old ways against Southern Miss in the Battle 4 Atlantis. Given what transpired on Wednesday, the Pirates were faced with a potential trap game against an underwhelming Southern Miss squad. Instead of turning in a no-show performance after a rough night, Seton Hall got the job done despite Myles Powell not having his best game and downed the Golden...

Seton Hall’s fatal flaw put on full display in collapse against Oregon

Talk about a punch to the gut. Up 19 in the second half and 10 with six minutes left to play, Seton Hall looked to be in prime position to defeat No. 11 Oregon and advance to take on No. 8 Gonzaga in the second round of the Battle 4 Atlantis. Instead of securing a Top 15 win and taking a crack at earning a resume-boosting win over Gonzaga, the Pirates completely collapsed and allowed Oregon to win a game in which it was essentially up...

Seton Hall downs Florida A&M in Battle 4 Atlantis tune up

Seton Hall returned to the Prudential Center on Saturday after nearly a week off and showed some signs of rust at times, but did enough to come away with an 87-51 win over Florida A&M The Pirates were heavy favorites and their stifling defensive effort showed why. Florida A&M shot a mere 29% from the field, 14% from three and at one point, endured a seven-minute scoring drought that Seton Hall used to its advantage to build a...

Seton Hall’s win over Saint Louis establishes the Pirates’ identity

It took only three games for this year’s Seton Hall team to establish what it’s made of. The Pirates didn’t have much time to recover from their gut-wrenching loss to No. 3 Michigan State on Nov. 14. Not only was the loss itself excruciating, but the Gavitt Games matchup was also physically and mentally draining to the point where Seton Hall could use a day or two to recover. However, there was no rest for the weary in this situation....

Seton Hall’s depth steals the show in win over Saint Louis

After Myles Powell carried Seton Hall throughout its showdown with Michigan State earlier this week, his teammates returned the favor and led the way in a tough road environment on Sunday. As Powell struggled to find his shot in the opening minutes, eight different Seton Hall players scored and accounted for the Pirates’ first 17 points in an 83-66 win over Saint Louis. Seton Hall jumped out to an 18-3 lead and never looked...

Powell’s monster game not enough for Seton Hall to knock off No. 3 Michigan State

Kiera Alexander/Photography Editor With the Prudential Center filled to capacity and rocking with the return of Myles Powell less than a week after he sprained his ankle against Stony Brook, the stage was set for Seton Hall to take home a potentially season-defining non-conference win in dramatic fashion. Unfortunately for the Pirates, it was simply not meant to be. Despite some heroic play from Powell, who finished with a season-high...

Powell’s pending absence can serve as valuable learning experience

His ankle rolled and his departure slowed by a limp, Myles Powell shouted a four-letter expletive as he left the Walsh Gymnasium court for the final time on Nov. 9. Every Seton Hall fan, player and coach had to be thinking the same thing. As Powell trekked back to the locker room to undergo treatment, the once-lively crowd descended into dormancy. The product on the court suffered as well, as the Pirates struggled to find their way...
