Neutral territory favors the Pirates

After playing only four of its 10 matches in front of a home crowd, Seton Hall’s women’s volleyball team dropped two games under .500 after a loss to Princeton University on Tuesday night. Now 4-6 on the year, the team’s record does not reflect the hand that it has been dealt. Head coach Allison Yaeger’s squad had to kick off the season with three straight three-match series: one in New York, one back home in South Orange and one in...

NFL penalties have gone too far

Nothing is quite like the first week of the NFL season. The sound of NFL Red Zone on the television, perhaps a party to start off the year. It’s the only time all season that each team has an equal shot at winning it all. Yes, even Browns fans have reason to be excited. However, there is one thing that can ruin the fun in any game – referees. Referees have always had an impact on the game. Nobody is perfect, so errors will undoubtedly...

Seton Hall survives late Butler rally to advance to Championship Sunday

Despite a late surge from a Butler offense that was dormant through the first six innings against Seton Hall starting pitcher Billy Layne Jr., the Pirates survived thanks to a clutch outing from closer Matt Leon to defeat the Bulldogs by a final score of 4-3 and advance to Championship Sunday for the first time since 2011. Layne Jr. turned in six gritty innings in which the redshirt sophomore right-handed starter worked in and out of...

Women’s basketball improved, but fell short of expectations

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team did not take a step back in the 2017-18 season, but the crushing defeat in the first round of the WNIT was not how the Pirates’ intended for it to finish. “That was extremely, extremely, extremely disappointing,” coach Tony Bozzella said after the 75-57 defeat to Saint Joseph’s on March 14. “A lot of credit to Saint Joe’s. They certainly came in with a good plan and executed really well.”...

With target on his back, Carrington needs to steer clear of Wolfpack press

The Big East features its share of stout defensive teams, but Seton Hall Pirates has not seen a defense like the one North Carolina State will throw at them in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday. Led by first-year head coach Kevin Keatts, the Wolfpack employs a full-court, man-to-man ball pressure scheme with an occasional full-court press thrown in. While plenty of teams in the Big East apply man-to-man ball pressure,...

Lockdown defense the key to success for Seton Hall Men’s Basketballl

In the closing weeks of the month, the Pirates showed their ability to overcome adversity, with three straight wins against DePaul, Providence and St. John’s....

Resilient Seton Hall cannot dig out of second-half hole

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team lost to Villanova on Sunday afternoon, 59-53, at the Jake Nevin Field House in Villanova, Pa.

Shadeen Samuels eager to bring winning brand to SHU

As the Seton Hall women’s basketball team enters its final month of regular season play, the group will need to dig deep to piece together a strong run and vault up the standings.

So far, the Pirates have fared well without Fountain in the lineup, going 2-1 since her departure. In...

After winning three of its last four games, the Seton Hall women’s basketball team has found itself in the middle of the Big East standings. However, there is more work to do for the Pirates to find themselves in the top half when the dust settles. The pride of coach Tony Bozzella’s system is the intensity his team brings to the game. From the players on the floor to those on the bench, Seton Hall has utilized a full-team effort to be...

Defensive development: Angel Delgado now a dual asset

Since breaking through as a freshman in the 2014-15 season, Angel Delgado has been a key cog in Kevin Willard’s offense for Seton Hall. The 6-foot-10 center possesses an imposing amount of physical strength in the post, which allows him to dominate almost any opponent down low and knock down a few quick buckets for the Pirates at any given time. So far in his collegiate career, Delgado has amassed 64 double-doubles. He also averages a...

Sanogo’s new-found jumper providing SHU with new element on offense

Throughout Ismael Sanogo’s first three seasons at Seton Hall, there were not many moments where he was spotting up to take a jump shot. A career 3.4-point per game scorer, almost all of Sanogo’s baskets came from close range. For Sanogo, a 10 to 15 foot jumper was out of the question. Now, seemingly out of nowhere, Sanogo has gone from an offensive liability to Seton Hall’s secret weapon. The first step in Sanogo’s progression as a...
