Cardaci proving to be jack of all trades for SHU

After draining 13 three-pointers in her first two games at Seton Hall, labeling Victoria Cardaci as a sharpshooter would be an appropriate tag. In three years at Clemson, Cardaci knocked down 109 shots from beyond the arc while appearing in 74 games for the Tigers. Cardaci was a specialist on a Clemson team that finished below .500 every year she was with the team. Now, her role has expanded and the graduate student has been able to...

Seton Hall spreads the wealth in victory over Kennesaw State

After Victoria Cardaci carried the offensive load in Seton Hall’s season-opening victory over Wagner, the Pirates proved they are more than a one-woman show against Kennesaw State on Saturday afternoon. Jill Cancela/Staff Photographer Coming off the bench, freshman Femi Funeus scored 21 points on 7-10 shooting, senior Inja Butina added 15 points and junior Kaela Hilaire chipped in 13 as Seton Hall cruised to 102-80 victory....

Seton Hall not phased by low spot in Big East coaches’ poll

After losing Khadeen Carrington, Angel Delgado, Desi Rodriguez and Ismael Sanogo, it is no surprise that expectations surrounding Seton Hall are not all that high. The Pirates are young and rather inexperienced. Myles Powell returns as the only starter from last season’s NCAA Tournament team, and while Myles Cale and Sandro Mamukelashvili did see time off the bench, they will be starters for the first time in their collegiate careers...

Powell thriving as centerpiece on and off the court

When Myles Powell walks into the Seton Hall practice gym, the faces that he once turned to for guidance are no longer there. For the first two years of his college career, Powell could always go to Khadeen Carrington, Angel Delgado, Desi Rodriguez and Ismael Sanogo with any questions or concerns. It was a formula that worked for the Trenton native, as advice from the core four helped him to develop into the Big East’s Most Improved...

Men’s basketball impresses in scrimmage victory

Seton Hall’s trip to Boston College this past weekend revealed some interesting tidbits regarding Kevin Willard’s young Pirates squad. In impressive fashion, Seton Hall knocked off an NCAA Tournament caliber Boston College team, 76-62. The Eagles were missing potential All-ACC big man Nik Popovic on the afternoon, but still featured preseason All-American Ky Bowman in the backcourt and top-100 recruit Jarius Hamilton on the wing in...

Mixed reactions further complicate G-League’s alternative to college

On Oct. 18, the G-League announced a new venture that would provide top high school basketball recruits with an alternative choice to playing in college. “Select contracts” worth $125,000 would be offered to elite prospects who are 18-years-old, but not yet draft eligible. On the surface, the G-League’s alternative sounds like an intriguing option for a high school basketball player, especially ones who come from rough areas and...

Former SHU baseball players succeeding at next level

Seton Hall made a memorable run in the Big East tournament a year ago and now, many of the players that fueled its run to the championship game are now achieving similar success at the professional level. Seven players from last season’s 30-win team were either drafted or signed with Major League Baseball franchises in June – a testament to the success coach Rob Shepherd has achieved developing and preparing players for the next level...

Tibbling’s soccer journey leads him to the States

Growing up in Sweden, soccer has been ingrained in Seton Hall freshman forward CJ Tibbling’s blood from day one. Not only is the sport commonplace in Tibbling’s hometown of Jarna and across Europe, but at home as well. Tibbling’s father, Jerome Vgno Tibbling, played professionally for years. It was only natural that the younger Tibbling would take after his father and adopt the sport as his first love. “I’ve played my whole life,”...

NFL putting other players at risk with initiative to protect quarterbacks

Has the NFL gone too far in prioritizing the safety of its quarterbacks over that of its other players? Ask Miami Dolphins defensive end William Hayes and he’ll likely have a strong opinion on the subject. Heading into Week 3, Hayes was a starting defensive end on an upstart Dolphins team that had jumped off to a 2-0 start. Not only was Hayes a starter, but he was also an integral part of Miami’s defense. Lining up opposite of Robert...
