Kness is boost women’s golf needed to return to form

Mia Kness, a freshman on the women’s golf team, is making strides in her first year and has the Pirates heating up in time for the Big East Championship. From the time she stepped on the collegiate course, Kness not only kept up with the competition, but also shot past it. Her strong freshman year began in the fall, with three top-20 finishes in her first four tournaments followed by her first individual title in the Brown Bear...

Pirates drop third in a row in upset to Georgetown

A matchup with ninth-place Georgetown on Saturday provided Seton Hall an opportunity to bounce back after losing to Marquette at home Wednesday, but the right answers still elude the Pirates.

One Giant mistake

The job of a quarterback is to be the general on the field. He is the man, the leader and the one that gets the blame when his team fails. From this aspect of the position, Eli Manning has been the model quarterback. Through 14 seasons as a Giant, with 210 consecutive starts, two Super Bowls and two Super Bowl MVP’s, Manning has been the face of the New York Giants, and has done so with the utmost class and respect. With the Giants...

Delaware shuts out Seton Hall to end winning streak

Seton Hall took on Delaware at Owen T. Carroll Field Wednesday night, with the Blue Hens putting in a goal in each half, and the Pirates being unable to produce similar resilience from games past, as Delaware prevailed 2-0. Not much went the Pirates way from the beginning as they failed to make an effective attack on net. The Blue Hens were quick with their offense and moved the ball efficiently to get eight shots in the first half....

Success starting at the plate for SHU’s win streak

In its past six games, Seton Hall baseball is averaging more than nine runs per game with four of those resulting in double-digit runs scored. It is no coincidence that each of those five games resulted in a win for the Pirates, who now look to finish out their schedule in the same way with hopes of reaching the Big East Tournament. Each game has had a different story line. However, there are some consistencies. In each of the six...

Westbrook’s historic season should be admired rather than critiqued

Russell Westbrook is on the verge of completing one of the most legendary seasons in NBA history, as he is about to finish the year averaging a triple-double in scoring, rebounds and assists. This feat has only been completed one time in the league’s history, when Oscar Robertson did it in 1964. Clearly, this is an extraordinary task, which some of the best players in the history of the game have never achieved. In Michael Jordan’s...

Stealing bases no longer a Seton Hall specialty

In 2016, the Seton Hall baseball team was nationally known for stealing bases. As the No. 1 team in the country in that category, the Pirates made their mark on the NCAA. Stealing bases is a unique advantage to have over opposing teams. Singles become doubles, and a walk could turn into a runner in scoring position without even touching the ball at the plate. That being said, whether Seton Hall could keep this advantage for the 2017...

Phil Jackson, please resign

The New York Knicks have been the laughing stock of the National Basketball Association for years now. The last respectable season was the 2012-13 campaign when the team lost in six games to the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Although not a magical ending, Knick fans would love to go back to that season where they went 26 games over .500 and grabbed the third seed in the East. Since then, they have a 108-192...
