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,...

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...

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...

Delgado embracing role as jack-of-all trades

Seton Hall senior center Angel Delgado has made his name as a dominating presence on the offensive and defensive glass, but rebounding is not all the Dominican Republic native is bringing to the table so far in 2017. While Delgado continues to rebound at a high pace, he has become more of a complete player for the Pirates, improving on the offensive end in a variety of ways. Last year, Delgado showcased his ability to make passes out...

Pirates, Rodriguez lock down to stun No. 17 Louisville

In one of the most anticipated games of the Pirates’ non-conference schedule, Seton Hall knocked off No. 17 Louisville, 79-77, on Sunday afternoon. The win improves the Pirates’ record to 7-1 in the early season. After an early Pirate lead, Louisville gained its composure and was within one at the break, creating an intense second half. It did not matter, however, as the Pirates leading scorer Desi Rodriguez made a heavily...

Pirates on Parade: Seton Hall wins fourth straight inside Walsh

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team gave their head coach a performance to smile about on Saturday, as they defeated St. Francis, 84-50, inside Walsh Gymnasium. “I thought our defensive intensity from the media timeout in the first quarter to the end of the third quarter was the best it’s been in a long time,” head coach Tony Bozzella said. The biggest reason for the Pirates’ defensive success was their ability to force...
