Myles Cale led the way with 20 on the day, Myles Powell had 19, Sandro Mamukelashvili had 17, and Quincy McKnight had 16. Cale and Mamukelashvili...

For true fans of the game, Super Bowl LIII was far from boring

For the majority of those who tuned in, Super Bowl LIII could be summed up in one word: boring. Neither the New England Patriots or Los Angeles Rams could get anything going on offense. The first quarter came and went without any points, as a string of three and outs and stalled drives put a damper on the action. The Patriots got on the board in the second quarter, but not in the form of a touchdown, and took a 3-0 lead into halftime....

Samuels leading the way for surprise Pirates

Underdogs are often built upon the collective overachievement of their players, but in certain cases, an individual player making the jump to the next level is all it takes to defy a team’s expectations. For Shadeen Samuels, her Big East averages of 20.7 points and 9.9 rebounds per game go a long way in putting her in that selective group of individuals. At the beginning of the season, the Seton Hall women’s basketball team was...

Season-high in turnovers prove costly as Pirates fall at Providence

The Seton Hall men’s basketball team fell to Providence on the road, 72-63, on Tuesday night after committing a season-high 22 turnovers. The turnover total was the highest in a game for Seton Hall since 2016, and the Pirates continued to pile them up down the stretch. After a difficult and-one from Myles Powell to make the game 40-38, the Pirates coughed the ball up 10 times in the last 15 minutes of the game and caused the Friars to...

Pirates fail to find late game magic again in loss to DePaul

Seton Hall had its seven-game winning streak snapped at the hands of the DePaul on Sunday afternoon, setting the Pirates back to 11-4 overall and 2-1 in conference play. The Pirates had a chance for comeback, buzzer-beater glory yet again, but Sandro Mamukelashvili came up short on a shot from beyond the arc after the Pirates received possession off a jump ball with six seconds left in the contest. Mamukelashvili could not find Myles...

Poor shooting leads to rocky start for Pirates

Kevin Willard’s biggest challenge this season was replacing the production left behind by his four-star seniors, and it still remains a work in progress eight games in. 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...

Thelen reflects on her Seton Hall career

Volleyball senior Abby Thelen was named to the All-Big East First Team for the second consecutive year last week. While the honor shows what Thelen has meant to Seton Hall, it is only a small part of her impact on the program. Thelen is one of only six players in Seton Hall history with over 1,300 career kills, while also ranking fifth in school history in attacks with more than 3,500. On the defensive end, she made her impact by...

Horrific injuries occuring at an alarming rate in 2018

This has been a year to remember in sports for some of the memories that it has created, but a year to forget for those who have suffered serious injuries. From Brooklyn Nets guard Caris LeVert suffering an ankle injury reminiscent to that of Kevin Ware’s, Oklahoma City Thunder rookie Hamidou Diallo having his leg bent all the way back in an awkward fall, UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton taking a helmet to the knee and Washington...

Nzei, McKnight lead Seton Hall to Wooden Legacy Championship

The Seton Hall Pirates came out on top in a back-and-forth affair over Miami on Sunday evening to clinch the Wooden Legacy Championship.

Throughout the night, Quincy McKnight and Michael Nzei led the way for Seton Hall. Nzei led all scorers with 21 points,...

Seton Hall vs. Miami: Pirates earn another chance for a signature win

Two hard-fought victories over Grand Canyon and Hawaii in the opening and semifinal round of the Wooden Legacy Tournament have provided Seton Hall with another shot at a signature win. The Pirates squandered a chance to add a resume-building win against Nebraska in the Gavitt Games, but have been granted a reprieve with a talented Miami team awaiting on Sunday night. Before taking on Fresno State in the semifinals, Miami had been...

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...
