Pirates face free-scoring Wofford in NCAA Tournament

After an impressive runner-up finish at the Big East Tournament, the Seton Hall men’s basketball team now has its eyes set on the NCAA Tournament.

Wofford enters the tournament on a 20-game winning streak that dates back to late December and is ranked 19th best team in the AP Top 25...

Despite end result, Seton Hall’s Big East Tournament run a noteworthy achievement

This year’s Seton Hall team was never supposed to sniff Big East Championship Saturday at Madison Square Garden. After losing four seniors and three 1,000-point scorers, the Pirates were better suited as a bottom-third team in the conference with designs on an NIT appearance. At best, this team could maybe avoid the dreaded first day of the Big East Tournament and maybe scrap for a win against another middle of the pack team. At least...

A bridge too far: freshmen provide spark, Powell prayer goes unanswered

NEW YORK – After three games in which the Seton Hall men’s basketball team enjoyed the luxury of a head-start over its opposition, the Pirates spent the Big East Tournament championship chasing top-seed Villanova, who did just enough to hold on for a record-setting third straight title, 74-72. In a game where the largest lead was merely nine and the advantage changed hands nine times, freshman Anthony Nelson converted a put-back layup...

Seton Hall has a chance to officially silence the critics after preseason prediction

In many ways, the 2018-19 Seton Hall men’s basketball team embodies the “Hazard Zet Forward” motto. The slogan, which sits proudly on Seton Hall’s school crest, translates to “Whatever the peril, ever forward” in English. The gritty roster put forth by Kevin Willard this season has exemplified this to a tee, as the Pirates advanced to the Big East Championship game with a dramatic, 81-79 win over Marquette on Friday night at Madison...

Pirates on the bubble as NCAA Tournament looms

There are three certainties about the month of March, and the first two involve the color green – the return of verdant leaves as spring begins and the proliferation of green-clad revelers celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. The third certainty is the madness caused by the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Currently, Seton Hall fans are in a frenzy over whether the Pirates will be invited to the “Big Dance” or on the outside looking in. In...

Kevin Willard fulfilled on his promise to change the starting lineup, inserting Shavar Reynolds and Romaro Gill in over Quincy McKnight and Michael Nzei.

With crucial weekend approaching, it’s now or never for Seton Hall

Seton Hall has three games left on its regular season schedule, but the final two will not mean much should the Pirates falter on the road against Georgetown this weekend. After losing to St. John’s in what initially seemed like a meltdown of epic proportion before a late surge made it a game at the end, Seton Hall’s back will be up against the wall in Washington D.C. on Saturday evening. If the Pirates come out on the wrong end...

Seton Hall’s NCAA Tournament hopes continue to slip away in loss to St. John’s

Kiera Alexander / Asst. Photography Editor A little less than a week ago, Seton Hall was in a good spot to make its fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance. With a Quadrant 1 road win over Creighton in their back pocket coupled with an impressive non-conference resume, the Pirates were in prime position to go from on the bubble to safely in the field of 64. Since then, the tide has turned and Seton Hall will now have to fight...
