Seton Hall not phased by low spot in Big East coaches’ poll

After losing Khadeen Carrington, Angel Delgado, Desi Rodriguez and Ismael Sanogo, it is no surprise that expectations surrounding Seton Hall are not all that high. The Pirates are young and rather inexperienced. Myles Powell returns as the only starter from last season’s NCAA Tournament team, and while Myles Cale and Sandro Mamukelashvili did see time off the bench, they will be starters for the first time in their collegiate careers...

Seton Hall’s new frontcourt set to make waves in 2018-19

For the past few seasons, Seton Hall men’s basketball has relied heavily on one part of its frontcourt – Angel Delgado.

Women’s basketball in position to replace leading scorers

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team lost its top three scorers from a year ago, and normally, this would be a terrible situation for any coach. Tony Bozzella, however, will have plenty of options, both from the outside and within, to look to this season. Last season, Donnaizha Fountain led the Pirates in scoring at over 15 points per game before she left. After her departure, it was up to JaQuan Jackson and Taylor Brown to carry...

Steady bench production needed for Seton Hall to contend

The Seton Hall men’s basketball team enter the 2018-19 regular season with many questions that need to be answered and many new faces entering the fold. While the Big East preseason coaches’ poll indicated a transition year for the Pirates, the bench production for this year’s team hopes to aid the gap left behind by last year’s senior class. In the 2017-18, depth was one of the better parts of the men’s basketball team. Due to...

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. – On Tuesday night, Seton Hall women’s basketball head coach Tony Bozzella was one of 1,655 in Walsh Gymnasium for the men’s basketball team’s 89-49 win over Wagner; an inconspicuous spectator on the stage behind the banner side-basket, only a few hours after his own team beat Wagner, 95-40.

After sitting out all of last season due to NCAA transfer rules, Thompson is ready to play a large role for the Pirates in 2018-19. After losing four starters this past offseason, Kevin Willard is hopeful that his new-look Pirates will...
