By laying groundwork, Seton Hall primed for even greater success in 2020

Remaining tournament teams show sport’s diversity

With one week of March Madness finished, the nation is down to 16 teams vying for the National Championship. Out of the remaining colleges in the tournament, 12 hail from small markets or from towns that are more than 100 miles from a city with a professional sports team. However, these colleges are finding representation at the national level despite the small-markets in which they play, as their accomplishments are redefining the...

For the Pirates, falling short is relative, but still hurts

JACKSONVILLE – The Seton Hall men’s basketball team was fueled by naysayers this season, and a full tank of pent-up acrimony took the Pirates to VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena last Thursday.

Pirates can’t overcome slow start, bow out of NCAA Tournament with loss to Wofford

Fresh off a trip to the Big East Championship game, Seton Hall traveled down to Jacksonville for the NCAA Tournament with its eyes on making a similar kind of run. No. 7 seed Wofford came to town with designs on a tournament run of its own, though, and knocked off the Pirates by a final score of 84-68 to send The Hall home early. “That’s one heck of a basketball team we played,” coach Kevin Willard said. “When...

Preview: Wofford will give battle-tested Seton Hall a run for its money

It’s rare that a school with a student population of 1,692 turns into a basketball power, but that is exactly what Wofford managed to accomplish in 2019.

Behind the play of Fletcher McGee and an assortment of sharpshooting guards and wings, the Terriers secured the No. 7 seed in the Midwest Region of the...
