Seton Hall finishes in sixth place at Loyola Intercollegiate

Seton Hall had plenty to deal with weather-wise last week, as imminent snowfall, heavy wind and sleet hit the South Orange area. The men’s golf team did not see one inch, however, as it was able to avoid the slew of inclement weather this past weekend when competing in the Loyola Invitational in Goodyear, Ariz. last weekend. Fittingly named Palm Valley Golf Course, known for its rolling hills and diverse terrain, the Pirates embraced...

Sager propels women’s golf to second place finish over weekend

The Seton Hall women’s golf team opened its spring season finishing in second at the 2019 Rio Verde Invitational on Feb. 24.  They competed among a field of 18 teams that also featured Big East rivals Xavier. The invitational was initially postponed on Friday due to a local storm, so the tournament took place later in the weekend with only two rounds of action. The Pirates were able to tie for the best second round score with an...

DeVito at the head of Seton Hall’s rotation in 2019

In 2018, Ricky DeVito took a leap bullpen piece to ace of the pitching staff and Big East Pitcher of the Year. Now, he is preparing himself to take an even bigger step in 2019. With Shane McCarthy, Billy Layne Jr. and Cullen Dana no longer in the picture, DeVito is at the head of Seton Hall’s starting rotation for the first time in his career. Gone are the days of DeVito turning to his veteran counterparts for advice, as he is now the...

Baseball prepares for life away from home

It’s one thing to go on the road and win a series against a conference rival, but it’s a whole new ballgame when every game you play is on the road. That is what Seton Hall is forced to deal with in 2019, as Owen T. Carroll is out of commission for the season. With their home ballpark undergoing renovations, the Pirates will take their show on the road for the duration of the year as they try to build on a 2018 season that nearly...

Inja Butina: A Croatian Dynamo

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. – Inja Butina is one-of-a-kind, cut from a chequy cloth. She does not strut around or stand out in those monotonous moments between her last and next time on the basketball court. Instead, she seems restless, as if the seconds tick away in her head with a faint echo. Tick, tick, tick. When her sneakers touch the wooden floor, however, Butina becomes Zen; a compelling spectacle of skill and unending desire to...

Kevin Willard’s schedule gripes are warranted

Kevin Willard has never been a fan of the way the Big East puts together its conference schedule. From the day he took over, Willard has always had something to say about Seton Hall’s conference slate. From rugged weeks against stacked opponents to the ridiculous 9 p.m. time slot that the Pirates often found themselves relegated to, Willard has never been shy about voicing his displeasure about the schedule. Most of the time,...

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. At the beginning of the season, the Seton Hall women’s basketball team was...

Upcoming games vital for Seton Hall’s tournament hopes

A January slump has many Pirate fans worried about the fate of this season. But only halfway through Big East play, the most important games are yet to come for the Hall. While Seton Hall has not had the success they have had in previous seasons at the Prudential Center, there’s no question the home crowd has offered an advantage. In games like St. John’s and Butler, it was part of the impact that pushed the team towards the victory...

Don’t give up on Seton Hall despite mid-season struggles

Myles Powell and Michael Nzei have been here before. When Powell was a freshman and Nzei was a redshirt sophomore, Seton Hall sat at 3-6 in Big East play at the halfway point of the conference schedule. The Pirates seemed destined for the NIT, until a late-season stretch featuring wins over two ranked opponents propelled them into the NCAA Tournament. The same applied last season, as a string of four consecutive losses in the middle...

Pirates fail to find late game magic again in loss to DePaul

Seton Hall had its seven-game winning streak snapped at the hands of the DePaul on Sunday afternoon, setting the Pirates back to 11-4 overall and 2-1 in conference play. The Pirates had a chance for comeback, buzzer-beater glory yet again, but Sandro Mamukelashvili came up short on a shot from beyond the arc after the Pirates received possession off a jump ball with six seconds left in the contest. Mamukelashvili could not find Myles...
