Women’s basketball improved, but fell short of expectations

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team did not take a step back in the 2017-18 season, but the crushing defeat in the first round of the WNIT was not how the Pirates’ intended for it to finish. “That was extremely, extremely, extremely disappointing,” coach Tony Bozzella said after the 75-57 defeat to Saint Joseph’s on March 14. “A lot of credit to Saint Joe’s.

Seton Hall’s seniors have always been chasers. They chased rankings. They chased legacies. They chased greatness. In the team’s second-round NCAA Tournament game against Kansas on Saturday, that role was no different. A No. 8 seed against a No. 1 in an environment fit for a Kansas fan put Seton Hall as the chaser on the biggest stage the seniors have seen. It was only fitting Seton Hall found itself in that role throughout the game....

Is Big East play Seton Hall’s secret weapon against Kansas?

A neutral site for Seton Hall in Wichita, Kan. will turn largely into a Kansas home game as Jayhawk fans file in on Saturday night at Wintrust Arena.
