Turnovers have been common theme during recent losing streak

Plenty of problems have plagued Seton Hall in its recent four-game losing streak, but none of those problems are more concerning than the Pirates’ alarming turnover rate over the past two weeks. Prior to the mid-season skid, Seton Hall had turned the ball over 53 times in its first four Big East games. Fifty-three turnovers in such a short span is not ideal, but it’s also not terrible for a young and inexperienced team going through...

Pirates’ dominant homecourt performance secures bounce-back win

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team defeated Georgetown, 76-63, on Sunday afternoon with the aid of another 20-point performance from the team’s leading scorer Shadeen Samuels. Samuels was hot from the opening tip, going 3-for-5 from beyond the arc on her way to 13 first half points. 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...

Sloppy play gets the best of Seton Hall in loss to No. 18 Villanova

Seton Hall had a week off to recharge, get healthy and work out the kinks that had plagued the Pirates throughout their recent losing streak. The expectation was that they would come out energized and hungry to end their three-game skid. Instead, Seton Hall couldn’t get out of its own way and turned in arguably its worst showing of the season in an 80-52 loss to No. 18 Villanova on Sunday. “I think Nova came out fighting more than us....

Seton Hall’s comeback falls short against Marquette

Following a turnover-filled first half, Seton Hall had a lot of work to do if it wanted to overcome a 10-point halftime deficit. The Pirates came out of the gate strong in the second half and nearly came all the way back, but it was not enough to down No. 21 Marquette in the end. Led by 26 points from star point guard Markus Howard, the Golden Eagles staved off a feisty Seton Hall comeback effort and held on for a 70-66 victory on...

Powell leads Seton Hall to bounce back win over Butler

Following a disappointing outing against DePaul over the weekend, Myles Powell knew he would have to be better heading into Wednesday night’s game against Butler. Powell did well to put his 4-13 shooting performance against DePaul in the rearview mirror, as he led all scorers with 31 points on 8-15 shooting from the field and a 13-15 showing at the free throw line and helped Seton Hall bounce back with a 76-75 win over the Bulldogs....

Throughout the evening, Seton Hall was handed multiple opportunities by a sloppy Saint Louis team that committed 27 fouls and turned the...

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’s new frontcourt set to make waves in 2018-19

For the past few seasons, Seton Hall men’s basketball has relied heavily on one part of its frontcourt – Angel Delgado. The Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award winner and all-time leading rebounder in Big East history took much of the load in the paint. This year, however, Seton Hall’s frontcourt is made up of depth with some new and old faces taking center stage. Outside of Delgado and Ismael Sanogo, it was Sandro Mamukelashvili and Michael...

Powell thriving as centerpiece on and off the court

When Myles Powell walks into the Seton Hall practice gym, the faces that he once turned to for guidance are no longer there. For the first two years of his college career, Powell could always go to Khadeen Carrington, Angel Delgado, Desi Rodriguez and Ismael Sanogo with any questions or concerns. It was a formula that worked for the Trenton native, as advice from the core four helped him to develop into the Big East’s Most Improved...
