Young Pirates will be tested in 2018-19

With Seton Hall’s full men’s basketball schedule having been released, it’s time to take a look at what lies ahead for a young Pirates’ team this upcoming season. Kevin Willard scheduled this way for a reason. Seton Hall’s 10th-year head coach believes in the talent on his roster, even though the Pirates are young and inexperienced. With Khadeen Carrington, Desi Rodriguez, Ismael Sanogo and Angel Delgado gone, this year’s version of...

Pitching leads Pirates to historic start in Big East play

The Seton Hall baseball team is accomplishing feats that have not occurred since before the Pirates’ current players were born. Seton Hall has won eight of its first nine Big East games, taking two out of three against Xavier, and more recently sweeping Butler and Villanova. The last time Seton Hall had such a dominant start was 29 years ago, when the 1989 Pirates won 13 of their first 14 Big East contests. Despite midweek losses...

Women’s tennis bounces back to down Villanova

The Seton Hall women’s tennis team was able to capture a win over Big East rivals Villanova on Saturday afternoon, 4-3, in Villanova, Pa. The win came 24 hours after the Pirates Senior Day loss to Marquette on April 13. Showing an ability to turn the page from that 4-1 loss, the Pirates defeated a Villanova team that entered the day with four more wins than Seton Hall. The Pirates No. 1 doubles team of Anicka Fajnorova and Luize...

Slow start for Pirates leads to Senior Day defeat

Newark, N.J. – The Seton Hall women’s tennis team fell short against Marquette, 4-1, on the last home match of the season on Friday afternoon. It was the first and last time the team played at the Campus Courts at Ivy Hill Park this season, and the last time ever for seniors Luize Strike and Katie Kim, who were both honored. The doubles matches were somewhat of a foresight as to how the afternoon would go for the Hall. Although...

NCAA Tournament seeding in question after early Big East Tournament exit

For the second consecutive year, Seton Hall could not box out. In last year’s Big East Tournament semifinals, the Pirates failed to box out Villanova star Josh Hart in the closing seconds, leading to a putback layup that wound up being the deciding factor. This season, with the clock winding down in the tournament quarterfinals, Butler point guard Kamar Baldwin blew by Seton Hall’s Michael Nzei on a pick and roll and found himself...

Questions and injuries mount as Seton Hall loses to No. 4 Villanova in overtime

Many fans woke up on Wednesday, Feb. 28 and asked themselves a question: Can Seton Hall beat No. 4 Villanova? Later, that question became: Can Seton Hall beat Villanova without Desi Rodriguez? Then, at night during warmups, the question expanded: Can Seton Hall beat Villanova without Rodriguez and Jordan Walker? The freshman guard was ruled inactive with a reinjured thumb. After a first half where the Pirates shot 20.7 percent from...

Men’s swimming and diving repeat as champions

The core seniors for the Seton Hall swimming and diving team could not have envisioned a better finish to their careers, as the season-long pursuit for the men to repeat as Big East champions was successful, while the women finished third once again. All told, seven program records were broken in the team’s triumphant three days at the Spire Institute in Geneva, Ohio from Feb. 21-24. Coming off of an identical weekend in the spring of...

Lockdown defense the key to success for Seton Hall Men’s Basketballl

For the Seton Hall men’s basketball team, it was not March that came in like a lion, but February. The team endured its toughest stretch of the season early in the month, as it suffered four straight losses at the hands of No. 1 Villanova, Marquette, Georgetown and No. 4 Xavier. In the closing weeks of the month, the Pirates showed their ability to overcome adversity, with three straight wins against DePaul, Providence and St. John’s....

Seton Hall seniors take adversity in stride

A stretch like the one Seton Hall endured over the last two weeks showed signs of a broken team, but it is nowhere Seton Hall’s senior class has not been before. Ever since the core four of Khadeen Carrington, Desi Rodriguez, Ismael Sanogo and Angel Delgado set foot on campus, adversity has become a common theme. As freshmen, they were part of a team that went from  top-25 to turmoil. As sophomores, embarrassing early season losses to...

Resilient Seton Hall cannot dig out of second-half hole

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team lost to Villanova on Sunday afternoon, 59-53, at the Jake Nevin Field House in Villanova, Pa. In a game where the Pirates trailed by as much as 18, a late run fueled in part by Selena Philoxy helped cut the Villanova deficit to six, but ultimately, Seton Hall could not cap off the comeback. JaQuan Jackson had 4 points and 4 rebounds in the first quarter, but did not get much help as both teams...

A confident Carrington holds invaluable weight for Seton Hall

Seton Hall is full of players that can change a game. Angel Delgado can dominate a team inside. Myles Powell can shoot unconsciously from three. Desi Rodriguez can take advantage of any matchup. The missing link has been Khadeen Carrington, who has been quiet offensively this season compared to numbers he has put up in the past. Heading into the Jan. 31 matchup against Providence, the senior had made just one three-pointer in his last...

Balance leading to potent offense for Pirates

When a team loses its leading scorer, devastating outcomes can come as a result. When it was announced that Donnaizha Fountain would no longer be with the Seton Hall women’s basketball program on Jan. 21, many expected the Pirates’ offense – which was already struggling at the time – to fall off a cliff. Over two weeks later, that has not been the case. Fountain accounted for more than 15.5 points per game. However, since the...
