Powell’s second-half eruption wills Pirate’s overtime upset over No. 9 Kentucky

NEW YORK – The second half of the Citi Hoops Classic awakened a sleeping giant, as Myles Powell heroically drained a potential game-winning three, only to be followed by an absurd Kentucky half-court prayer that forced overtime in dramatic fashion. Powell erupted for 22 second-half points and unselfishly shared the ball that later found Myles Cale for the dagger shot, leading the Pirates to an 84-83 upset over No. 9 Kentucky....

Nicole Jimenez achieves basketball nirvana at Seton Hall

In his first season at Seton Hall, Mamukelashvili found himself playing behind program legend Angel Delgado and the always-solid Ismael Sanogo in the frontcourt. Minutes were scarce and most of the time...

The men’s basketball team has gotten off to a 5-3 start this season and begins conference play on Dec. 29. There were certainly expectations for a few players, such as Myles Powell and Michael Nzei, to rise up and perform this season, but the Pirates have seen a...
