Butler a worthy trade for 76ers

The Minnesota chapter of Jimmy Butler’s career has finally come to an end and while a reunion with Tom Thibodeau sounded the part, his longtime head coach decided that it was time for both parties to move on. After weeks of evaluating offers from a multitude of teams, the Timberwolves elected to pull the trigger on a deal that included young players with upside and draft capital. The Philadelphia 76ers acquired Butler and Justin...

Asiah Avent ready to earn his keep as a walk-on

The viewing public has shown time and again that it can never get enough of the game’s brightest stars, and their incredible feats certainly deserve the recognition.

Seton Hall’s new frontcourt set to make waves in 2018-19

For the past few seasons, Seton Hall men’s basketball has relied heavily on one part of its frontcourt – Angel Delgado. The Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award winner and all-time leading rebounder in Big East history took much of the load in the paint. This year, however, Seton Hall’s frontcourt is made up of depth with some new and old faces taking center stage. Outside of Delgado and Ismael Sanogo, it was Sandro Mamukelashvili and Michael...

Willard and Bozzella flying toward the same goal

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. – On Tuesday night, Seton Hall women’s basketball head coach Tony Bozzella was one of 1,655 in Walsh Gymnasium for the men’s basketball team’s 89-49 win over Wagner; an inconspicuous spectator on the stage behind the banner side-basket, only a few hours after his own team beat Wagner, 95-40. The last time he was on that stage in the public eye, March 14, his eighth-seeded team had just been eliminated from the WNIT...

Fresh faces and a new offense will benefit Seton Hall

The word of the summer for Seton Hall basketball was transition. The team qualified for its third straight NCAA Tournament last season, led by the likes of Khadeen Carrington, Angel Delgado and Desi Rodriguez. Since then, however, those three, Ismael Sanogo and several other pieces have either graduated or transferred elsewhere. Rightfully, the team has seen scrutiny over the past few seasons. Despite finding success in 2017-18, the...

Powell thriving as centerpiece on and off the court

When Myles Powell walks into the Seton Hall practice gym, the faces that he once turned to for guidance are no longer there. For the first two years of his college career, Powell could always go to Khadeen Carrington, Angel Delgado, Desi Rodriguez and Ismael Sanogo with any questions or concerns. It was a formula that worked for the Trenton native, as advice from the core four helped him to develop into the Big East’s Most Improved...

Women’s basketball success potentially higher than poll ranking

The Big East Preseason Coaches’ Poll for women’s basketball can be misleading to the depth that returns to the hardwood for the Seton Hall Pirates this season. The team acquired three transfers from talented programs that includes a former five-star recruit who has been recently made eligible to play this season. The top two teams from last year, who split the conference’s regular season trophy, are returning a similar number of...

The Eagles were missing potential All-ACC big man Nik Popovic on the afternoon, but still featured preseason All-American Ky Bowman in the backcourt and top-100 recruit Jarius Hamilton on the wing in...
