Instant classic goes against the Pirates as late comeback falls short

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team suffered their first defeat of the season at home tonight in an 85-83 loss to Princeton.

The two teams traded leads ten times throughout the duration of the...

Seton Hall transfers among Big East’s best

A hot 2-0 start featuring both a home and away win has shown that the Seton Hall women’s basketball team is playing well, but the Pirates’ record is only half of the story. Something is different about this squad and the way that the returning players have blended with transfers and the freshmen. “A huge part of the changes is the attitudes,” head coach Tony Bozzella said. “KK [Hilare], Jayla [Jones-Pack], and Quanny [Jackson], and...

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.

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...

Cale relies on teammates to overcome early obstacles

The transition from high school basketball player to collegiate athlete can be a difficult jump, especially when one has to recover from a shoulder injury the first month on campus. 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.
