Cale stars in exhibition win over New Haven

Myles Cale stamped his authority on Seton Hall’s 73-62 exhibition win against New Haven on Friday, Nov. 9. The sophomore dropped 20 points on 7-10 shooting, adding eight rebounds and two assists. Point guard duo Anthony Nelson and Quincy McKnight started together for the first time, part of the new rotations head coach Kevin Willard has been experimenting with. With both players on the floor, Nelson took the ball up the court and...

Concerned 44 can seek guidance and learn from past protests

It has now been roughly one week of protests organized by the group “Concerned 44” on campus. They have successfully made their presence known by occupying the lobby in Presidents Hall, gathering on the Green with signs, marching through campus and taking to the streets of South Orange to announce their demands to the community both on and off campus. On Oct. 27, Interim Provost Dr. Karen Boroff sent out an email that canceled the...

Former SHU baseball players succeeding at next level

Seton Hall made a memorable run in the Big East tournament a year ago and now, many of the players that fueled its run to the championship game are now achieving similar success at the professional level. Seven players from last season’s 30-win team were either drafted or signed with Major League Baseball franchises in June – a testament to the success coach Rob Shepherd has achieved developing and preparing players for the next level...

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...

Former walk-on now wears the coveted pink shirt

The path to becoming a routine starter for volleyball has been anything but clear for Miranda Higginbotham. One of Seton Hall volleyball’s unsung heroes, the fiery competitor has seen her game blossom from being a walk-on in her freshman year to a crucial role as a starting libero and defensive specialist. Not even expecting to play her freshman year as a recruited walk-on, Higginbotham earned playing time as a defensive specialist....

NFL players long for security, not attention

As the National Football League continues to be criticized for the safety of its players, the treatment of top athletes has become a topic of concern. This past offseason, some of the most talented and well-known players sat out because of their contracts. Aaron Donald of the Los Angeles Rams did not report to training camp until he signed a six-year, $135 million contract, including a $40 million signing bonus and nearly $87 million...

NFL putting other players at risk with initiative to protect quarterbacks

Has the NFL gone too far in prioritizing the safety of its quarterbacks over that of its other players? Ask Miami Dolphins defensive end William Hayes and he’ll likely have a strong opinion on the subject. Heading into Week 3, Hayes was a starting defensive end on an upstart Dolphins team that had jumped off to a 2-0 start. Not only was Hayes a starter, but he was also an integral part of Miami’s defense. Lining up opposite of Robert...

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,...
