Seniors pace Pirates in rout of Saint Peter’s

For the first time since 2001, the Seton Hall Pirates entered their annual on-campus game in the Walsh Gymnasium with an AP top-25 ranking Tuesday night. The No. 15 Pirates did not disappoint, handily beating in-state rival St. Peter’s 84-61. Seniors Khadeen Carrington, Desi Rodriguez, and Angel Delgado each scored in double-digits in what was their final on-campus game to lead the Pirates. The first half seemed almost effortless for...

Big performances by Fountain, Jackson help Pirates fly past Eagles

After a slow start, the Seton Hall women’s basketball team went on to a 73-53 win over Boston College on Sunday afternoon. The Pirates rallied to score 59 points over the last three quarters while shutting the Eagles down defensively.   The first quarter was a defensive battle, as the Pirates held just a 14-11 advantage after the first 10 minutes of play. They were led by JaQuan Jackson’s six points, thanks to two three-pointers on as...

Second-half Rutgers run turns one-possession game into blowout loss

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team fell in, ultimately, resounding 70-45 fashion to Rutgers on Friday afternoon in Piscataway, N.J. The final score is deceiving in regards to how the game played out for much of the way, with the two teams separated by one possession for most of the first three quarters. It was not Seton Hall’s best game of the season, as JaQuan Jackson failed to score in the first half, shooting 0-for-3 from...

Special face in the crowd for walk-on Shavar Reynolds

What was left of the opening-night crowd at the Prudential Center on Nov. 10 let out a half-enthusiastic roar when Jordan Walker hit a three-pointer to give Seton Hall an 86-63 lead with 3:10 remaining. The game had been decided and the outcome of the final few minutes seemed fairly insignificant. That was not the case for walk-on guard Shavar Reynolds, who got the call soon after that to check in for the first time in his Division I...

Visit to September 11 Memorial & Museum inspires Seton Hall

A firetruck stands in the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, crushed and mangled. On it reads the words “Ladder Co. 3” for the group of firefighters that manned it. The entire Seton Hall men’s basketball team gathered around the crushed truck on Nov. 27 during a visit to the museum, listening to the words of the lone survivor whose crew rode on the truck on Sept. 11, 2001. “Ladder 3 had great comradery,” Bill Spade, a 1981...

JaQuan Jackson inspiring Pirates

Hopes are high for the Seton Hall women’s basketball team after a 6-1 start this season. The reason for good spirits around Tony Bozzella’s crew has not just been the on-court results, but also the off-court development of one of the Pirates’ most talented players in JaQuan Jackson. The redshirt senior was named co-captain with redshirt sophomore Kaity Healy at the start of the season after spending one year with the team. Now,...

Former Seton Hall right-handed pitcher Jose Lopez was added to the 40-man roster of the Cincinnati Reds on Nov. 21. Lopez, a native of Cranbury, N.J., made his debut for the Pirates in 2012. He spent two seasons at Seton Hall as a relief pitcher before an injury derailed his junior campaign. Despite this, he was drafted by the Reds in the sixth round of the 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft. Since being drafted, Lopez has made 64...

High-powered offense has women’s basketball off to fast start

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team has jumped out to a strong start this season thanks in large part to their improved, high-scoring offense. Through their first seven games, the Pirates are 6-1, which is a notable improvement from the 2016-17 season in which they got out to a 4-3 start through the first seven games. The team’s explosive offense can be attributed to the improvements the Pirates are seeing on the court. Through...

Expanding the College Football Playoffs would benefit the sport

When the NCAA did away with the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) and instituted the College Football Playoff (CFP) system for the 2014-15 season, many viewed it as a step in the right direction. With the way the BCS worked, many teams were snubbed out of certain bowl games and in some cases, national championship appearances. In theory, installing the playoff system was going to eliminate any potential snubs, as the best four teams...

High school hoops prospects taking unconventional paths

The formula was the same for so long: Play well in AAU and high school, go to a Division I program, and continue to grow and develop for one to four years before entering the NBA Draft. The cookie-cutter path followed by countless greats of the game seemed to be the optimal track to a professional career, save for a short stint of high school players making the jump to the league prior to the “one-and-done” rule. In the last few years...
