Women’s Basketball concludes regular season as WNIT begins

Despite going .500 for the second straight year, finishing out the 2018-19 campaign at 15-15, the women’s basketball team was invited to the WNIT once again after appearing in the tournament in 2018. The Pirates will travel to Ohio to face Toledo in the first round after an up and down regular season. Seton Hall began the season on a three-game winning streak, ultimately wrapping up its non-conference schedule with a record of 8-4....

Despite end result, Seton Hall’s Big East Tournament run a noteworthy achievement

This year’s Seton Hall team was never supposed to sniff Big East Championship Saturday at Madison Square Garden. After losing four seniors and three 1,000-point scorers, the Pirates were better suited as a bottom-third team in the conference with designs on an NIT appearance. At best, this team could maybe avoid the dreaded first day of the Big East Tournament and maybe scrap for a win against another middle of the pack team. At least...

Pirates on the bubble as NCAA Tournament looms

There are three certainties about the month of March, and the first two involve the color green – the return of verdant leaves as spring begins and the proliferation of green-clad revelers celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. The third certainty is the madness caused by the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Currently, Seton Hall fans are in a frenzy over whether the Pirates will be invited to the “Big Dance” or on the outside looking in. In...

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...

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,...

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...

Inconsistency plagues volleyball in 2018

Although sweeping DePaul, 3-0, in its final match of the season on Nov. 17, the Seton Hall volleyball team ended the year on a disappointing note. In a season filled with promise and high expectations, Allison Yaeger’s squad failed to qualify for the Big East Championship. The Pirates finished with a 10-20 record overall, including a measly 5-12 in conference play and 2-9 away from their home court. The team’s greatest downfall came...

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...
