Now apart, Philoxy sisters still believe in future together on the court

The tension is so thick on the dark bus ride from Hinkle Fieldhouse to the J.W. Marriott in Indianapolis on Jan. 4, it could be cut with a knife. The next morning brings a similar air of discontent for the two-hour drive from Indianapolis to Cincinnati, in which the Seton Hall women’s basketball team travels past miles of farmland: dew still lining the ground, livestock grazing, and yet there is still a common thread, a staple with...

‘Plan B’ has turned out well for player-turned-coach Flagg

Marissa Flagg never thought she would stop shooting a basketball, nor did she think that she would one day be on a coaching staff for a Division I basketball team.  As a point guard from Iona College, and then a professional overseas, Flagg believed basketball would never end, and she did not think that she would one day pick up the clipboard. Yet, at the end of her tenure in Puerto Rico, Flagg had to become more realistic with...

Samuels leading the way for surprise Pirates

Underdogs are often built upon the collective overachievement of their players, but in certain cases, an individual player making the jump to the next level is all it takes to defy a team’s expectations. For Shadeen Samuels, her Big East averages of 20.7 points and 9.9 rebounds per game go a long way in putting her in that selective group of individuals.

In the second half, it was more of the same as she guided the ship for the Pirates with timely steals and drawn fouls on the Hoyas. Samuels has now...

Imitation leads to landmark upset for Seton Hall

The Marquette Golden Eagles – now an AP top-10 team in women’s college basketball – may possess the most loaded roster the Big East has seen since its 2013 reconfiguration.
