Seton Hall runs out of gas as Xavier rallies for come-from-behind victory

Deflections, second-chance points, drawn fouls and dunks made up many moments that ignited a sold-out Prudential Center crowd and a hungry Seton Hall team. But those moments dwindled as the second half progressed, allowing No. 11 Xavier to take over for a 73-64 victory against No. 19 Seton Hall on Saturday afternoon. Seton Hall went as far as its defense allowed it to. In the first half, the Pirates held Xavier to 37.9 percent...

Professors should permit mental health days

Some days it comes with absolutely no warning. My shrill alarm wakes me up in the morning. I groggily roll over in bed to shut it off and internally groan, thinking of the day ahead. And this isn’t just an ‘I’m still tired’ groan. No. This is a ‘I truly don’t think I can make it through the day’ groan. The idea of getting out of bed, showering, getting dressed and starting my responsibilities makes me physically sick to my stomach....

Schank, Butler quiet Seton Hall bats in Big East opener

Coming into Friday afternoon’s Big East opener against Butler, the Pirates (14-13, 0-1) were swinging some hot bats and riding high off a nine-run outburst in their last game against Wagner.

The lefty entered the day with a 1.12 ERA and turned in another strong performance, allowing only one run over...

SHU baseball’s offense too much for Wagner

On Wednesday, the Seton Hall Pirates defeated the Wagner Seahawks by a final score of 9-2. In what was their final tune up before Big East play, the Pirates pitching staff shut down Wagner’s offense and cruised to a win. Early on, it looked as if Pirates starter Chris Morris could throw a gem. However, his location plagued him, causing his pitch count to run up early. He was pulled in the fifth inning after 96 pitches and two earned...

NFL Pro Bowl needs to pick up ratings or shut down

On Jan. 29, the AFC and NFC squared off in the annual NFL Pro Bowl. What transpired was actually a somewhat competitive game, in which players actually seemed to care a little bit about the outing at hand. It would ultimately be the AFC who came out on top with a 20-13 victory. Then Monday came, and the ratings for the game were released. To put it mildly, it wasn’t too pretty. The Pro Bowl this year drew a 4.6 overnight rating,...
