How a Star was Born

Myles Powell’s path to glory fueled by work ethic and big heart One conversation with Myles Powell is all it takes to realize he is different than other star players in college basketball. Despite the numerous accolades to his name and the fame that has come along with being a 2019 preseason All-American and the face of Seton Hall basketball, Powell prefers not to talk too much about himself. Even after games where he single-handedly...

Success from beyond the arc fuels Pirates’ winning streak

Aging men in barber shops talk about a time when basketball was played in the paint. Offenses revolved around the center and the two hand set shot and the “skyhook” were king. The three-point shot did not exist yet and taking a long-range shot was unheard of. These old tales seem crazy to young basketball fans in 2020. Three-pointers are a crucial element of the modern game, and players like Steph Curry, Kyle Korver and Ray Allen have...

Seton Hall outlasts Providence to remain perfect in Big East play

On the night where Myles Powell was honored for being the fifth player in Seton Hall history to hit 2,000 career points, head coach Kevin Willard made a little history of his own by tying PJ Carlesimo for all-time Big East wins at 78. Willard has been around long enough, from 2010 until present day, to know the drill. In usual coy fashion, he brushed off the record in favor of the fact that Carlesimo coached in an era with 16 Big East...

Seton Hall overcomes turnover bug to continue record Big East start against St. John’s

Another day, another come from behind victory for Seton Hall. Three days after turning in its cleanest performance of the season against Butler, it looked like the turnover bug was going to get the best of Seton Hall against St. John’s at Madison Square Garden. The Pirates turned the ball over 15 times in the first half and trailed 43-30 at halftime. In typical Seton Hall fashion, it refused to go away without a fight. The Pirates put...

Seton Hall fights past Marquette for sixth consecutive win

Physical, hard-nosed basketball. That is the name of the game whenever Seton Hall and Marquette take the floor. Saturday’s matinee affair did not disappoint in that regard. For 40 minutes, the Pirates and the Golden Eagles duked it out in front of a capacity Prudential Center crowd that provided a March-like atmosphere. The end result? Seton Hall’s sixth straight win, fourth straight conference victory and third straight triumph over...

Supporting cast powers Seton Hall to romp over Georgetown

Romaro Gill’s career night powered Seton Hall to a 78-62 drubbing of Georgetown to top the Big East standings on a feisty Friday night at the Rock. Myles Powell, the conference’s second-leading scorer at 21.7 points per game, started 0-for-4 and found himself on the bench for much of the first half. “He’s not back to where he’ll be in a couple weeks,” Kevin Willard said postgame, but the supporting cast carried the load in front of a...

Myles Powell leads Seton Hall’s comeback over DePaul

Myles Powell’s return sparked Seton Hall to come from behind and take down a DePaul team exceeding expectations in Chicago, 74-66. Powell led all scorers with 27 points and snagged five steals in his first game back from a concussion. Last time Seton Hall played on the road, a hostile Rutgers side took advantage of the Pirates’ slow start to build a mammoth lead. Against DePaul, Seton Hall made just one of its first seven shots as the...

Seton Hall survives Prairie View A&M to close out non-conference play

The opening atmosphere Sunday afternoon at the Prudential Center was lackadaisical at best, but by the end of Seton Hall’s come-from-behind 75-55 victory over Prairie View, every person in Pirate blue was on their feet applauding the efforts of their team. After pulling off what was made out to be an impossible victory over No. 7 Maryland on Thursday night, the Pirates looked devoid of energy and urgency to open the first half the...

Defensive dominance propels Seton Hall to signature win over No. 7 Maryland

Remember the lifeless and offensively incompetent Seton Hall team that took the floor against Rutgers last weekend? That version of the Pirates was nowhere to be found on Thursday night. Seton Hall locked in defensively for 40 minutes and garnered just enough offense to survive and secure itself a much-needed 52-48 signature win over No. 7 Maryland in its return to the Prudential Center. After getting shredded by a Rutgers squad known...

Pirates relinquish Hardwood Classic Trophy in embarrassing blowout

Two years ago, Rutgers ended the 2017 Garden State Hardwood Classic on a 17-2 run to stun Seton Hall with a loss. This year, the Scarlet Knights picked up right where they left off, starting the game on a 19-3 run en route to a 68-48 blowout of the Pirates. On top of the bruise to Seton Hall’s ego, the team also lost Preseason All-American Myles Powell for the entire second half due to being evaluated for a head injury. In a raucous...

Seton Hall loses Sandro Mamukelashvili in ugly loss to Iowa State

There’s only one word that can sum up Seton Hall’s 76-66 loss to Iowa State on Sunday night. Ugly. The Pirates struggled to get going offensively throughout the night, shooting a mere 36% from the field and 26% from three against an Iowa State defense that gave up 84 points to Seton Hall last weekend in the Bahamas. Myles Powell finished with 19 points on 7-20 shooting before fouling out late in the second half, while...

Seton Hall closes out Battle 4 Atlantis with key win over Iowa State

Kevin Willard’s message to his team was clear heading into its matchup with Iowa State on Friday night – No more excuses. The Pirates, who faced plenty of criticism after blowing a 19-point lead against Oregon on Thanksgiving Eve, rallied against a resilient Iowa State team with a dominant closing effort and overall solid defensive game to win 84-76. The win puts the Pirates at 6-2 on the year and allows them to leave the...
