Gonzalez Tate rides into the tri-colored sunset

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. – There is a midfielder in white and blue that bleeds green and red, with a dragon tattoo flying up her arm and a ball running off her feet. Her name is Eva Gonzalez Tate, one of three captains for the Seton Hall women’s soccer team, and one of two that will wave goodbye at the end of the month. Gonzalez Tate will graduate in May, but because of her involvement in the U-20 World Cup with Mexico during the fall of...

X-factor Powell looking to break out of slump in second NCAA Tournament

For the Seton Hall men’s basketball team, this NCAA Tournament is centered around its four seniors.

To no surprise, he has also become the...

Pirates prevail as tables turn in final minutes

In a game of contrasting styles where the Pirates trailed late, the hardy Seton Hall women’s basketball team overcame Xavier on Friday night by a final score of 58-53.

Rebounding record cements Delgado in Big East lore

In 1987, Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard got his first glimpse at what a dominant rebounder looked like. As a ball boy for the 1987 Syracuse team that made it to the Final Four while his father was an assistant coach, Willard had a courtside seat to witness center Derrick Coleman pull down rebounds at a historic pace in his sophomore year. As the years passed, Coleman got better on the glass and finished his Big East career with...
