The men’s basketball team has gotten off to a 5-3 start this season and begins conference play on Dec. 29. There were certainly expectations for a few players, such as Myles Powell and Michael Nzei, to rise up and perform this season, but the Pirates have seen a...

Scoring droughts plague Seton Hall in loss to Louisville

Despite leading for 30:46 of game time, it was not enough for Seton Hall to hang on for a win against Louisville. Seton Hall ended the game shooting two of its last 11 and Myles Powell’s look from beyond the arc to tie the game in the closing seconds was no good, giving Louisville a 70-65 victory on Saturday afternoon. Throughout the afternoon, Seton Hall had sizeable leads, but multiple scoring droughts allowed Louisville to get back...

Powell’s career night puts Seton Hall back in the win column

It was the Myles Powell show on Thursday night, as Seton Hall’s star put up a career-high 40 points in the Pirates’ 82-75 win over Grand Canyon in the opening game of the Wooden Legacy Tournament. Much of the speculation surrounding this year’s team ended with the answer that Powell would become the focal point of the Pirates’ offense. The Trenton, N.J. native did more than answer the call on the night, hitting jump shot after jump...

Cardaci proving to be jack of all trades for SHU

After draining 13 three-pointers in her first two games at Seton Hall, labeling Victoria Cardaci as a sharpshooter would be an appropriate tag. In three years at Clemson, Cardaci knocked down 109 shots from beyond the arc while appearing in 74 games for the Tigers. Cardaci was a specialist on a Clemson team that finished below .500 every year she was with the team. Now, her role has expanded and the graduate student has been able to...

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...
