Myles Powell, Alexis Lewis receive weekly honors

The Seton Hall men’s and women’s have been off to a hot start for the 2019-20 season. Myles Powell is naturally leading the way on the men’s side. On the women’s side, it is not as clear. After Shadeen Samuels went down with an injury against Princeton, the rest of the team needed to step up and did. Most notably, Desiree Elmore and Alexis Lewis picked up the pace. Due to her efforts, Lewis found herself named to the Big East Weekly...

Opportunity for consistency awaits Seton Hall in Saturday matinee

The Seton Hall men’s basketball team returns home on Saturday for a matchup with Florida A&M after a brief road trip to St. Louis that resulted in a 17-point statement win. With the Billikens and Michigan State Spartans in the rearview mirror, Kevin Willard and the Pirates will look to bring the momentum back home and get a win over the Rattlers. Florida A&M is one of the lesser opponents in Seton Hall’s loaded non-conference...

Seton Hall’s win over Saint Louis establishes the Pirates’ identity

It took only three games for this year’s Seton Hall team to establish what it’s made of. The Pirates didn’t have much time to recover from their gut-wrenching loss to No. 3 Michigan State on Nov. 14. Not only was the loss itself excruciating, but the Gavitt Games matchup was also physically and mentally draining to the point where Seton Hall could use a day or two to recover. However, there was no rest for the weary in this situation....

Seton Hall’s depth steals the show in win over Saint Louis

After Myles Powell carried Seton Hall throughout its showdown with Michigan State earlier this week, his teammates returned the favor and led the way in a tough road environment on Sunday. As Powell struggled to find his shot in the opening minutes, eight different Seton Hall players scored and accounted for the Pirates’ first 17 points in an 83-66 win over Saint Louis. Seton Hall jumped out to an 18-3 lead and never looked...

Cale, Mamukelashvili form brotherhood bond on and off the court

If you walk around Seton Hall’s campus on a men’s basketball off day, odds are that you will see Myles Cale and Sandro Mamukelashvili together. The duo, both now juniors receiving significant playing time under Kevin Willard, came into school together and forged a bond that extends on and off the court. Cale, from Middletown, Delaware, and Mamukelashvili, from Tbilisi, Georgia, each come from dynamically different backgrounds, but...

Powell’s monster game not enough for Seton Hall to knock off No. 3 Michigan State

Kiera Alexander/Photography Editor With the Prudential Center filled to capacity and rocking with the return of Myles Powell less than a week after he sprained his ankle against Stony Brook, the stage was set for Seton Hall to take home a potentially season-defining non-conference win in dramatic fashion. Unfortunately for the Pirates, it was simply not meant to be. Despite some heroic play from Powell, who finished with a season-high...

Powell’s pending absence can serve as valuable learning experience

His ankle rolled and his departure slowed by a limp, Myles Powell shouted a four-letter expletive as he left the Walsh Gymnasium court for the final time on Nov. 9. Every Seton Hall fan, player and coach had to be thinking the same thing. As Powell trekked back to the locker room to undergo treatment, the once-lively crowd descended into dormancy. The product on the court suffered as well, as the Pirates struggled to find their way...

Underappreciated McKnight sets the tone for Seton Hall

Seton Hall’s talent has the nation’s attention – the Pirates are ranked 12th in the country and Myles Powell is a preseason All-American. But while he won’t make the highlight reel, Seton Hall would not be where they are without Quincy McKnight at the point. Last year, while Powell grabbed the headlines, McKnight cemented himself as the anchor of Seton Hall’s resolute defensive front. The Sacred Heart transfer earned a reputation as...

Behind Enemy Lines: Six questions with State News

The biggest game on Seton Hall’s non-conference schedule is finally here. The Pirates will host No. 3 Michigan State in front of a sold out Prudential Center crowd on Thursday. Myles Powell’s status for the game is up in the air due to a sprained left ankle, but that has not prevented the hype surrounding the Gavitt Games matchup from dying down. In an effort to get to know the Michigan State team that will take the floor, The...

Nelson, Rhoden confident heading into second year with Pirates

For Anthony Nelson and Jared Rhoden, there is no room for a “sophomore slump” heading into this season. Seton Hall is no longer the underdog team from last year; they are the early front-runners to win the Big East and potentially claim a Big East championship title that just alluded their grasp in last year’s final. For the Pirates to reach that pinnacle again, however, Rhoden and Nelson will have to build upon their momentums from...

Seton Hall’s length can be the difference in 2019

With the Seton Hall men’s basketball season finally underway, there are bound to be questions. The media continues to guess on which teams will be Final Four bound each preseason, yet they still never get it right. Look at who most of the ‘experts’ picked to reach Minneapolis last season. Very few had Texas Tech, who eventually made a National Championship Game run, there. But in South Orange, there’s one factor that opposing coaches,...

Powell’s injury shifts spotlight to Mamukelashvili

Heading into the Seton Hall and Michigan State affair on Nov. 14, all eyes were on preseason All-Americans Myles Powell and Cassius Winston. After Nov. 9, however, the rhetoric has changed. Powell is likely sitting out the contest against the No. 3 Spartans due to an ankle injury suffered in the early stages of the game against Stony Brook. Powell stepped on the Seawolves’ Andrew Garcia’s foot driving to the hoop and then subsequently...
