Seton Hall stunned by Rhode Island in NIT Tip-Off thriller

A chaotic final minute was what it came down to in Seton Hall’s 75-74 loss to Rhode Island in the NIT Season Tip-Off on Thanksgiving night. A Jared Terrell contested layup with five seconds to go was the cap to a 32-point night for the guard, and what ended up handing the Pirates their first loss of the season. Seton Hall held a one-point lead through the final minute after Rhode Island led for 32 minutes of the game. With eight lead...

Powell shows no sophomore slump

One year ago, on Nov. 17, 2016, in only his third game at Seton Hall, Myles Powell was heading into a hostile environment for the first time in his collegiate career. Nobody knew what to expect from Powell heading into that night, but the Trenton native showed everyone why Kevin Willard and his staff brought him to Seton Hall, dropping 26 points in a decisive 91-83 victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes. From that point on, Powell not only...

Three games aren’t enough to judge Carrington at point guard

Going into the 2017-18 season, one of the biggest question marks surrounding the Seton Hall men’s basketball team was how senior Khadeen Carrington would adjust to the full-time point guard role with Madison Jones gone. Three games into the season, Carrington has put up a total of 15 assists and has shot 45 percent from the field. He totaled six assists in the season opener against Fairleigh Dickinson on Nov. 10 on Sunday against...

Myles Cale had long awaited his arrival in South Orange, but had to wait a little longer to take the court due to the setback. “It was a lot. It was nerve-wracking at first,” the freshman from Delaware said. “You get frustrated, but you got to fight...

A long time coming: Seton Hall seniors follow paths to shot at the Final Four

Ten years ago, seniors Khadeen Carrington and Desi Rodriguez met each other for the first time. As sixth graders, the two were in the early stages of forming their basketball careers, playing together on New Heights, an Amateur Athletic League (AAU) program. The New York natives hit it off right away when they met as 12-year-olds, but the gap between where they lived led to them being distanced for some time. “We were very close...

A man of the people: Delgado’s connection to the Seton Hall University community

“Angel. I like Angel.” That was Kevin Willard’s response when asked about what he likes about his frontcourt. Safe to say, a lot of Seton Hall faithful are saying the same thing. In three years as a Pirate, Delgado has emerged as a fan favorite. From his admirable intensity and leadership, to his 1,000-point scoring career, and of course being commonly mentioned as the best rebounder in the country, there’s a lot for Seton Hall to...

Fielding questions from media members at Big East Media Day on Oct. 18 at Madison Square Garden, senior guard Khadeen Carrington was wearing two blue rubber bracelets on his right wrist. On either side, the bracelets read “Seton Hall Basketball” and “Family.” When asked about them, Carrington said all the players wear them.
