December paramount to success for Women’s Basketball

While it poured outside Walsh Gymnasium, the Seton Hall women’s basketball team dripped with swagger inside, galloping down the court with the ball at a quick dribble, terrorizing the River Hawks of UMass Lowell to the tune of a 90-57 romp. The orchestration seemed so well-tuned, as the Pirates dished out 21 assists as a team, shot 54.2 percent from the field and 44 percent from three. But, while the Pirates now sit 6-1 with...

Special face in the crowd for walk-on Shavar Reynolds

What was left of the opening-night crowd at the Prudential Center on Nov. 10 let out a half-enthusiastic roar when Jordan Walker hit a three-pointer to give Seton Hall an 86-63 lead with 3:10 remaining. The game had been decided and the outcome of the final few minutes seemed fairly insignificant. That was not the case for walk-on guard Shavar Reynolds, who got the call soon after that to check in for the first time in his Division I...

Women’s Basketball schedule presents challenges – and opportunities

Following what was a rebuilding season for Tony Bozzella and the Seton Hall women’s basketball team in 2016-17, the Pirates are not afraid of challenges for the upcoming season. With the new schedule released Sept. 14, there are many opportunities for the team to improve on last year’s 12-19 record, provided it stays healthy. The non-conference schedule will present its challenges, but those games will allow the Pirates to play up to...

Women’s basketball reflects on season, talks preparation for Big East Tournament

The women’s basketball team fell Feb. 26 to St. John’s University, giving the team a regular season record of 11-18 and 4-14 in Big East play. It is the team’s first overall losing record since the 2012-13 season and the worst so far under coach Tony Bozzella’s reign. With a young team, a rebuilding year was expected from Seton Hall. However, the way the season went may prove to be a stepping-stone to hopeful success for the Pirates,...

Torn ACLs have taken college basketball by storm in 2017

Unfortunately, torn ACLs have become commonplace in sports. Any time a player lands the wrong way and goes down holding their knee, screaming out in pain, the first thought is that he or she may have very well tore his anterior cruciate ligament. Just like torn UCLs and Tommy John surgery have become common in baseball, torn ACLs have become common and to a point, inevitable in basketball. As common as the injury may be, it has...

Hilaire reigns in 2-0 weekend for women’s basketball

Kaela Hilaire has been a play-maker in her first year of collegiate basketball. Her most recent accolade occurred Sunday, Jan. 29 against Butler. Just a week prior, the freshman point guard attempted a game-winning shot against Creighton only to have the ball rim out and send the game into overtime. The Pirates would be bested by the Bluejays. With another opportunity to seal the deal against Butler, Hilaire found her touch when she...

Women’s basketball keeping up morale over six-game skid

Making three straight NCAA Tournament appearances is not an easy task. Now, more than ever, that feat seems increasingly unlikely for the Seton Hall women’s basketball team. After all that Tabatha Richardson-Smith did during her time at Seton Hall, as well as the contributions of transfers Aleesha Powell and Shakena Richardson last season, and the duo of Daisha and Ka-Diedre Simmons the year before that, head coach Tony Bozzella...
