It’s too early to determine the NBA’s Power Rankings

The inaugural games of the 2018-19 NBA season are officially in the books. The Boston Celtics defeated the Philadelphia 76ers, 105-87, and the Golden State Warriors edged out the Oklahoma City Thunder, 108-100, on Tuesday night. While both the Celtics and Warriors top the charts in ESPN’s latest power rankings, it might be wise to pump the brakes before declaring either of these teams as championship-favorites. According to ESPN’s...

Pirates primed to peak at the perfect time of the season

Timing is everything in long distance running: knowing how to pace yourself for each mile, knowing when to add the final kick in at the end and knowing how to maintain consistency throughout the season. Given the Seton Hall men’s and women’s cross country teams’ personal successes in the first four meets, both are on pace to peak at the right time of the season when championship meets come around at the end of October. Emma Newgarden...

Seton Hall seniors’ legacy lies in what they leave behind

Angel Delgado, Khadeen Carrington, Desi Rodriguez and Ismael Sanogo are leaving more than their accomplishments at Seton Hall – they are leaving a culture established in their four years in South Orange. It goes back to summer of 2014, when the four players along with Isaiah Whitehead pledged their allegiance to Seton Hall. The return of those men, even after Whitehead went to the NBA, year over year gave Seton Hall fans a group to...

McCarthy pitches seven, Pirates score 10, in road win

The Seton Hall baseball team racked up a road win on Friday night, defeating the Oklahoma State Cowboys, 10-7, in Stillwater, Okla. In a day in which consistency of offense prevailed, Seton Hall’s Christian del Castillo was the catalyst of that offense with three RBI’s, including a first career-collegiate home run. Shane McCarthy got the start for the Hall and tossed seven innings, keeping the Cowboys off the board for six, before...

Keeping pace with Seton Hall Cross Country

The duration of a cross country season is like a race itself: slower times in the beginning allow for an increased and consistent pace toward the middle of the race, and then the final kick at the end toward the finish line. As the home stretch of the season approaches for Seton Hall’s men’s and women’s cross country teams, they look to finish their 2017 campaigns strong and maintain consistency in their race times. Both teams have...

SHU baseball’s offense too much for Wagner

On Wednesday, the Seton Hall Pirates defeated the Wagner Seahawks by a final score of 9-2. In what was their final tune up before Big East play, the Pirates pitching staff shut down Wagner’s offense and cruised to a win. Early on, it looked as if Pirates starter Chris Morris could throw a gem. However, his location plagued him, causing his pitch count to run up early. He was pulled in the fifth inning after 96 pitches and two earned...

Bullpen’s consistency key to Pirates’ pitching success

Bullpens often get overlooked, but Seton Hall’s has been a key to the Pirates’ success. Coming into the year, most expected the starting trio of Shane McCarthy, Zach Prendergast and Cullen Dana to carry the Pirates’ pitching staff. While they have improved as of late, it has been the bullpen that has really shined thus far. In comparison to the 2016 season, the three starters’ combined ERA has risen from 3.00 to 4.43 while the...
