Baseball rounding into form at the right time as Big East Play approaches

It took nearly the entire first month of the season, but Seton Hall is finally rounding into the form that propelled the Pirates to the Big East Championship game a year ago. In February, Seton Hall began its season with a trip down to Florida that did not go as planned. The Pirates entered the campaign with high expectations based on their run at the end of last season, but were floored by the competition they faced in Port...

By laying groundwork, Seton Hall primed for even greater success in 2020

Myles Powell and Quincy McKnight walked off the court with a towel draped over their heads. Jared Rhoden followed with his hands on his head in a state of disbelief, while Sandro Mamukelashvili draped his arm around Director of Basketball Operations Kyle Smyth. There’s nothing quite like an NCAA Tournament loss. All season, players and coaches work countless hours to perfect their craft, build a worthy resume and win enough games to...

With the groundwork laid, Seton Hall primed for even greater success in 2020

Pirates can’t overcome slow start, bow out of NCAA Tournament with loss to Wofford

Fresh off a trip to the Big East Championship game, Seton Hall traveled down to Jacksonville for the NCAA Tournament with its eyes on making a similar kind of run. No. 7 seed Wofford came to town with designs on a tournament run of its own, though, and knocked off the Pirates by a final score of 84-68 to send The Hall home early. “That’s one heck of a basketball team we played,” coach Kevin Willard said. “When...

Preview: Wofford will give battle-tested Seton Hall a run for its money

It’s rare that a school with a student population of 1,692 turns into a basketball power, but that is exactly what Wofford managed to accomplish in 2019. Winners of 20 straight games and the No. 20 team in the AP Top 25, Wofford has emerged as one of college basketball’s best teams. Behind the play of Fletcher McGee and an assortment of sharpshooting guards and wings, the Terriers secured the No. 7 seed in the Midwest Region of the...

McKnight to take on prominent role in first NCAA Tournament appearance

Two years ago, Quincy McKnight made the decision to venture out of his home state for the first time in his basketball career. Leaving a school where he was the undisputed star of the team to take a step up in competition was a risk, but a necessary one for McKnight to get a chance at opportunities like the one he will have when Seton Hall takes the floor on Thursday night. The 2018-19 season has been one of firsts for McKnight. After...

Despite end result, Seton Hall’s Big East Tournament run a noteworthy achievement

This year’s Seton Hall team was never supposed to sniff Big East Championship Saturday at Madison Square Garden. After losing four seniors and three 1,000-point scorers, the Pirates were better suited as a bottom-third team in the conference with designs on an NIT appearance. At best, this team could maybe avoid the dreaded first day of the Big East Tournament and maybe scrap for a win against another middle of the pack team. At least...

Seton Hall inches closer to NCAA Tournament with win over Villanova

Goodbye bubble, hello NCAA Tournament. Entering the week, Seton Hall’s season was on life support. Following a crushing double-overtime loss to Georgetown, the Pirates needed to pull a rabbit out of their hat and defeat both No. 16 Marquette and No. 23 Villanova in the final week of Big East play to flip the script and improve their chances at a fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance. In front of a sold-out Prudential Center...

Freshmen making an instant impact on the diamond

Making the jump from high school to college baseball is no easy task. With a grueling practice and workout schedule, the always tricky balance between academics and athletics, and travel that no youth level experience can emulate, many freshmen struggle right off the bat. For a handful of Seton Hall’s newcomers, that has not been the case. With 13 freshmen on the roster and a handful of spots up for grabs, coach Rob Sheppard has not...
