Gordon ready to make NCAA Tournament history

  In four years of college, Derrick Gordon has worn three different uniforms – those of Western Kentucky, UMass and, finally, Seton Hall. When the No. 6-seeded Pirates take on No. 11-seeded Gonzaga on March 17, it will be their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2005-06. But it will be Gordon’s third time at the Big Dance. He is the first player ever to ac- complish that feat. The senior said it best after he helped SHU defeat...

Pirates lockdown on Georgetown as Delgado dominates

  On an 80s-themed Saturday night in Newark complete with throwback music, retro jerseys and a crowd of more than 9,000 fans, Seton Hall beat Georgetown, 69-61, in a classic Big East matchup. The win moves Seton Hall into sole possession of third place in the Big East with a record of 17-6, 7-4. The Hoyas hung tight with Seton Hall throughout the physical contest, but never led after the 15:38 mark in the second half. Both teams shot...

Defense proving to be a major key to SHU’s success

  Defense wins championships. That is a phrase commonly heard in sports, but for the Seton Hall men’s basketball team, defense is something that has become a mindset on the court. Since the start of conference play, the Pirates rank first in the Big East in field-goal percentage defense, holding opponents to 39 percent shooting from the floor. Despite having the sixth-best scoring defense since the start of conference play, Seton Hall...

Pirates proving more mature in 2015-16

  That time of year for the men’s basketball team is bouncing into town again. We all know the story. We remember what happened like it was yesterday (or just last year, whichever you prefer). A hot start to the season, two back-to-back wins against ranked opponents Villanova and St. John’s, and, eventually, a Top 25 ranking. Then, just as fast as the jubilation had swept through South Orange, it was gone. A year ago, the Pirates...

Friars falter as Seton Hall upsets No. 12 Providence

The Seton Hall men’s basketball team pulled off a major upset on Providence on Saturday afternoon, besting the nation’s No. 12-ranked squad, 81-72. It was a surprise to see the Dunkin Donuts Center sold out with the New England Patriots playing their divisional-round playoff game just 25 miles away. Instead of watching the Pats beat the Kansas City Chiefs, 27-20, Providence fans witnessed a Friar falter at the hands of Seton Hall, who...

Gordon leading on and off the court for SHU

  In sports, there is always talk about a team’s need for veteran leadership in the locker room. From the outside looking in, this was something that Seton Hall appeared to lack – at least in any effective manner – during a 2014-15 season that saw the Pirates lose nine of their last 10 games. This year, however, the Hall has Derrick Gordon. A transfer from UMass, the guard has made a noticeable impact in the leadership department with...

Gordon’s other half: Twins reunited after one’s stay in prison

Ten minutes and 47 seconds have gone by in the first half of Seton Hall’s season opener on Nov. 13 and Derrick Gordon is about to check in for the second time. As he rises from the bench to make his way towards the scorer’s table, he sees a familiar face get up in the stands. The face is very similar to his own, but Darryl Gordon’s dreadlocks and smaller stature make for distinct differences between the fraternal twins. With Derrick...

Men’s basketball wins season opener against Dartmouth

  The Seton Hall men’s basketball team took home its first win of the season with an 84-67 victory over the Dartmouth Big Green on Friday night. Sophomore Isaiah Whitehead helped lead the way with 18 points, five rebounds and a career-high eight assists. “I think he’s got to be more aggressive and start shooting the basketball early on, rather than force it,” head coach Kevin Willard said about Whitehead’s performance. “For your first...
