The Pirates played hard against the best women’s college basketball program in the nation, but they were ultimately dispatched by the undefeated Huskies, 99-61. Nicole Jimenez led the visitors on the offensive end, turning in a 23-point performance....

Nicole Jimenez achieves basketball nirvana at Seton Hall

Once in a while, a player is overlooked in recruitment – by everyone. It is an old adage that intangibles: heart, composure and perseverance, cannot be measured, but it was crystal clear on Sunday in Walsh Gymnasium what so many Division I scouts missed in Seton Hall guard Nicole Jimenez. As the senior from Miami, Fla. rained a program-record nine three-pointers on Saint Peter’s, coaches from her past took to social media and shared...

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team clobbered Saint Peter’s, 90-47, on Sunday afternoon in its final non-conference home game of the 2018-19 season. Anthony Bozzella’s intense offensive tactics proved efficient once again as his team hit the 90-point mark for the sixth time this season. Saint Peter’s joined UMass Lowell, UTSA, and Wagner in teams that have suffered defeats by more than 30 points at the hands of Bozzella’s...

December paramount to success for Women’s Basketball

While it poured outside Walsh Gymnasium, the Seton Hall women’s basketball team dripped with swagger inside, galloping down the court with the ball at a quick dribble, terrorizing the River Hawks of UMass Lowell to the tune of a 90-57 romp. The orchestration seemed so well-tuned, as the Pirates dished out 21 assists as a team, shot 54.2 percent from the field and 44 percent from three. But, while the Pirates now sit 6-1 with...

Healy entrenched as a leader for Seton Hall

For the third consecutive year Kaity Healy will be the captain of the Seton Hall women’s basketball team. Healy dubbed the accolade an “extreme honor” and is up for the challenge. Head coach Anthony Bozzella also spoke highly of Healy’s character and outgoing personality, which he said made her deserving of the captaincy yet again. “She has handled all the things a captain needs to do, not just ‘Let’s all get huddled up together’ or...

Cardaci proving to be jack of all trades for SHU

After draining 13 three-pointers in her first two games at Seton Hall, labeling Victoria Cardaci as a sharpshooter would be an appropriate tag. In three years at Clemson, Cardaci knocked down 109 shots from beyond the arc while appearing in 74 games for the Tigers. Cardaci was a specialist on a Clemson team that finished below .500 every year she was with the team. Now, her role has expanded and the graduate student has been able to...

Seton Hall spreads the wealth in victory over Kennesaw State

After Victoria Cardaci carried the offensive load in Seton Hall’s season-opening victory over Wagner, the Pirates proved they are more than a one-woman show against Kennesaw State on Saturday afternoon.

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...

Although a freshman, Funeus carries herself like a veteran

After signing her National Letter of Intent, Seton Hall women’s basketball head coach Anthony Bozzella called Femi Funeus “one of the most polished players I have ever seen at the high school level, regardless of position.” Bozzella doubled down on his praise for his freshman forward at Big East Media Day, saying she is in the conversation for Big East Freshman of the Year.

Seniors ready to lead charge for women’s basketball

This season, the women’s basketball team will feature five seniors. The past two years, the senior classes only included two players, but now, veteran leadership will be a major part of a team looking to bounce back from a 16-16 record last season. Barbara Johnson is one of the five following a transfer from Ole Miss. Before her time in Mississippi, she played at Chipola College, averaging 11.8 points on 43 percent shooting. In...
