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.

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...

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...

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...

Sanogo’s return to starting lineup reignites defense

After watching his team give up 54 first-half points to Rhode Island in the NIT Season Tip-Off on Thanksgiving night, Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard knew something had to change defensively.

However, in his sophomore and junior seasons, Sanogo...

This rise to the top, however, was not achieved without its fair share of scrapes and...
