Despite end result, Seton Hall’s Big East Tournament run a noteworthy achievement

This year’s Seton Hall team was never supposed to sniff Big East Championship Saturday at Madison Square Garden. After losing four seniors and three 1,000-point scorers, the Pirates were better suited as a bottom-third team in the conference with designs on an NIT appearance. At best, this team could maybe avoid the dreaded first day of the Big East Tournament and maybe scrap for a win against another middle of the pack team. At least...

Seton Hall inches closer to NCAA Tournament with win over Villanova

Goodbye bubble, hello NCAA Tournament. Entering the week, Seton Hall’s season was on life support.

Pirates on the bubble as NCAA Tournament looms

There are three certainties about the month of March, and the first two involve the color green – the return of verdant leaves as spring begins and the proliferation of green-clad revelers celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. The third certainty is the madness caused by the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Currently, Seton Hall fans are in a frenzy over whether the Pirates will be invited to the “Big Dance” or on the outside looking in. In...

Powell leads Pirates over Marquette, Howard in dramatic victory

In the battle of the Big East superstars, Myles Powell came out with the upper hand in more ways than one. He finished with 34 points as compared to Markus Howard’s six points, but the biggest number on the scoreboard was the final score, not the individual statistics, as Seton Hall came away with a 74-63 victory over No. 16 Marquette. The Golden Eagles kept their distance from the Pirates all game, but ultimately, an 18-0 run to...

With crucial weekend approaching, it’s now or never for Seton Hall

Seton Hall has three games left on its regular season schedule, but the final two will not mean much should the Pirates falter on the road against Georgetown this weekend. After losing to St. John’s in what initially seemed like a meltdown of epic proportion before a late surge made it a game at the end, Seton Hall’s back will be up against the wall in Washington D.C. on Saturday evening. If the Pirates come out on the wrong end...

Seton Hall finishes in sixth place at Loyola Intercollegiate

Seton Hall had plenty to deal with weather-wise last week, as imminent snowfall, heavy wind and sleet hit the South Orange area. The men’s golf team did not see one inch, however, as it was able to avoid the slew of inclement weather this past weekend when competing in the Loyola Invitational in Goodyear, Ariz. last weekend. Fittingly named Palm Valley Golf Course, known for its rolling hills and diverse terrain, the Pirates embraced...

Arteaga driving softball’s offense with simplicity

Through 13 games to start the softball season, a large part of the team’s offense is running through Hailey Arteaga. The junior from Upland, Calif. is having a torrid opening to the campaign.

For players on the team with 15 at bats or more, the next best is Jaden Tate, who is hitting .296 in 27 plate appearances. Arteaga also leads the team...
