Sharp-shooting Seton Hall downs St. John’s on New Year’s Eve

Basketball is known as a game of runs, and Sunday evening’s clash between the Seton Hall Pirates and St. John’s Red Storm was the epitome of that, with a handful of runs from both teams. In the end, though, Seton Hall was able to outlast the short-handed Red Storm inside the Prudential Center by a final score of 75-70. Thanks to a standout performance from Khadeen Carrington, who led all scorers with 24 points, a 23-point game from...

Second-half Rutgers run turns one-possession game into blowout loss

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team fell in, ultimately, resounding 70-45 fashion to Rutgers on Friday afternoon in Piscataway, N.J. The final score is deceiving in regards to how the game played out for much of the way, with the two teams separated by one possession for most of the first three quarters. It was not Seton Hall’s best game of the season, as JaQuan Jackson failed to score in the first half, shooting 0-for-3 from...

It is not weak to grieve

On June 29 my father passed away due to health complications. Though it’s been months, I am still not sure I will ever fully recover. Some days, I feel perfectly normal. However, for each of those days, there comes one where I will see a shirt of his on the stairs or I will stare at the tomato plants he planted in the spring as they begin to wither away. These times have been some of my most difficult, but I’m learning to control the...
