Cardaci leads Pirates in final season

On a team looking for veteran leadership and shooters in a revamped, fast-tempo offense, Victoria Cardaci fits the mold perfectly for Seton Hall. The Holmdel, N.J., native and Clemson transfer is using her final year of eligibility in South Orange after sitting out last year due to NCAA rules. “I chose to come to Seton Hall for the coaching staff. I felt like the staff really believed in me and wanted to develop me not only as a...

Women’s basketball success potentially higher than poll ranking

The Big East Preseason Coaches’ Poll for women’s basketball can be misleading to the depth that returns to the hardwood for the Seton Hall Pirates this season. The team acquired three transfers from talented programs that includes a former five-star recruit who has been recently made eligible to play this season. The top two teams from last year, who split the conference’s regular season trophy, are returning a similar number of...

Starting over to get ahead: Media Day Q&A with Shadeen Samuels

NEW YORK – Women’s basketball forward Shadeen Samuels brought flowers to the Garden on Oct. 25. It was her first Big East Media Day, and the junior’s bubbling personality shined through at Madison Square Garden like her athleticism did inside Walsh Gymnasium last season. The versatile, 6-foot cornerstone of Tony Bozzella’s 2018-19 team was one of four players to take the train ride from South Orange to Penn Station, for the annual...

Difficult women’s basketball slate finalized

Last week, the remainder of the Seton Hall women’s basketball schedule was finalized. The Pirates will be itching to move on from and subsequently build upon a disappointing end to the 2017-18 season, a loss to Saint Joseph’s in the first round of the Women’s National Invitational Tournament. Despite an NIT bid, Seton Hall ended last season with an even 16-16 record. The roster has experienced significant turnover since then, but with...

Jaquan Jackson signs deal to continue basketball dream

Over the last two years, no two words have reverberated around Walsh Gymnasium more than “JaQuan Jackson.” The words became calling cards for a momentum-shifting three-pointer, or better, a dagger that secured a win for Tony Bozzella’s team. On May 7, still two weeks away from receiving her Bachelor in Social and Behavioral Sciences, Jackson had officially risen from Pirate to Royal, signing with storied German club Saarlouis Royals...

Women’s basketball improved, but fell short of expectations

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team did not take a step back in the 2017-18 season, but the crushing defeat in the first round of the WNIT was not how the Pirates’ intended for it to finish. “That was extremely, extremely, extremely disappointing,” coach Tony Bozzella said after the 75-57 defeat to Saint Joseph’s on March 14. “A lot of credit to Saint Joe’s. They certainly came in with a good plan and executed really well.”...

Pirates fall to St. Joe’s in NIT first round, leaving questions for Bozzella

In the first home postseason game in Walsh Gymnasium since 2014, the 8th-seeded Seton Hall Pirates were defeated by the 9th-seeded Saint Joseph’s Hawks, 75-57, in the first round of the Women’s National Invitational on Wednesday night, ending the season for Tony Bozzella’s team. “It’s a shame, because, I was excited to get us in the postseason, we got a home game; a draw against obviously a very good team from the A-10 [Atlantic-10],...

Women’s basketball returns to Walsh Gym in WNIT first-round matchup

Before Seton Hall women’s basketball learned of its Women’s National Invitational Tournament first-round opponent, head coach Tony Bozzella and his staff were scouting and preparing. So, when Saint Joseph’s was announced as the school Seton Hall would line up against on March 14 at 7 p.m., the Pirates were ready. “I’m familiar with Saint Joe’s and the A-10 [Atlantic 10 Conference],” Bozzella said. “We had an idea of who we might play...
