On June 30, 2013, the Catholic 7 officially split from the old Big East, kept the Big East...

The Seton Hall men’s soccer team has taken steps forward this season, and a lot of it comes down to the midfield partnership of Alex Pozesky and Matheus Miranda. The two are different in many ways off the field; Pozesky, a 5-foot, 10-inch sophomore from Columbia, P.A., Miranda a 6-foot, 1-inch senior from Belo Horizonte, Brazil. But when the two step foot onto the field, they combine to solidify the Seton Hall midfield. “They are the...

The Big East First and Second Teams of last season are made up of 15 players who elected to go pro. Of them, none have been...
