Mamukelashvili eager to impact in the tournament

The Seton Hall men’s basketball season has been largely about the team’s four seniors, but those seniors have had a job beyond winning this season: tutoring the next generation. Sandro Mamukelashvili is part of the class that came to Seton Hall this fall, thought of as part of the answer to fill the void that the seniors will leave behind. Whether one, two or more games remain for the players that have 0, 14, 20 and 31 on their...

Pirates’ Desi Rogriguez is a changed man

He came off the bench. He could not shoot threes. He was a little timid. In his freshman season, Desi Rodriguez was just an ordinary player. He did not stand out, partly because of the stellar freshmen he was surrounded by and in large part because he did not understand the college game. Rodriguez came to Seton Hall along with Isaiah Whitehead, his teammate from Abraham Lincoln High School. Whitehead, a five-star a recruit and one of...

NCAA Tournament seeding in question after early Big East Tournament exit

For the second consecutive year, Seton Hall could not box out. In last year’s Big East Tournament semifinals, the Pirates failed to box out Villanova star Josh Hart in the closing seconds, leading to a putback layup that wound up being the deciding factor. This season, with the clock winding down in the tournament quarterfinals, Butler point guard Kamar Baldwin blew by Seton Hall’s Michael Nzei on a pick and roll and found himself...

Questions and injuries mount as Seton Hall loses to No. 4 Villanova in overtime
