Big performances by Fountain, Jackson help Pirates fly past Eagles

After a slow start, the Seton Hall women’s basketball team went on to a 73-53 win over Boston College on Sunday afternoon. The Pirates rallied to score 59 points over the last three quarters while shutting the Eagles down defensively.   The first quarter was a defensive battle, as the Pirates held just a 14-11 advantage after the first 10 minutes of play. They were led by JaQuan Jackson’s six points, thanks to two three-pointers on as...

Second-half Rutgers run turns one-possession game into blowout loss

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team fell in, ultimately, resounding 70-45 fashion to Rutgers on Friday afternoon in Piscataway, N.J. The final score is deceiving in regards to how the game played out for much of the way, with the two teams separated by one possession for most of the first three quarters. It was not Seton Hall’s best game of the season, as JaQuan Jackson failed to score in the first half, shooting 0-for-3 from...

JaQuan Jackson inspiring Pirates

Hopes are high for the Seton Hall women’s basketball team after a 6-1 start this season. The reason for good spirits around Tony Bozzella’s crew has not just been the on-court results, but also the off-court development of one of the Pirates’ most talented players in JaQuan Jackson. The redshirt senior was named co-captain with redshirt sophomore Kaity Healy at the start of the season after spending one year with the team. Now,...

High-powered offense has women’s basketball off to fast start

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team has jumped out to a strong start this season thanks in large part to their improved, high-scoring offense. Through their first seven games, the Pirates are 6-1, which is a notable improvement from the 2016-17 season in which they got out to a 4-3 start through the first seven games. The team’s explosive offense can be attributed to the improvements the Pirates are seeing on the court. Through...

Pirates on Parade: Seton Hall wins fourth straight inside Walsh

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team gave their head coach a performance to smile about on Saturday, as they defeated St. Francis, 84-50, inside Walsh Gymnasium. “I thought our defensive intensity from the media timeout in the first quarter to the end of the third quarter was the best it’s been in a long time,” head coach Tony Bozzella said. The biggest reason for the Pirates’ defensive success was their ability to force...

Defense a constant message from Bozzella

It is no secret that this year’s Seton Hall women’s basketball team is able to score. After putting up more than 80 points just once last season, Tony Bozzella’s squad has already eclipsed that mark three times in just five games, including a 91-point outburst in the team’s opener against St. Peter’s on Nov. 10. While the offensive front for the Hall may be promising, Bozzella knows that his team will struggle if they are unable to...

Rider no match for Pirates as Seton Hall improves to 3-1

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team dominated the Rider Broncs 85-49 in the opening game of the 2017 SHU Thanksgiving Classic this afternoon. The Pirates were fresh off an eight-day break from their most recent contest, an 85-83 loss to Princeton back on Nov. 16, and that extra time for rest and preparation certainly paid off. Seton Hall got off to a hot start in the first quarter, cruising to an 11-3 lead after just five minutes....

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. After trailing by as much as 12 with three minutes remaining, the Pirates fought back, but could not secure a lead in the final minutes as a buzzer-beating three by Pirates guard Inja Butina ended the game with the Hall just two points short. 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...
