Steady bench production needed for Seton Hall to contend

The Seton Hall men’s basketball team enter the 2018-19 regular season with many questions that need to be answered and many new faces entering the fold. While the Big East preseason coaches’ poll indicated a transition year for the Pirates, the bench production for this year’s team hopes to aid the gap left behind by last year’s senior class. In the 2017-18, depth was one of the better parts of the men’s basketball team. Due to...

Win’s first individual title more than a record-setting performance

Lizzie Win can certainly hold her head high. The junior golfer captured her first ever individual title at the collegiate level when she led her team to victory at the 2018 Delaware Lady Blue Hen Invitational on Oct. 21.

The outing also netted Win another Big East Women’s Golfer of the Week, her second such...

Seton Hall was the school that gave Weigel, from Oak Park, Ill., a chance. Weigel delivered with two All-Big East Second Team selections, as he played an integral part in a four-year stretch in which...

Certainly, young national team players like Christian Pulisic...

They will also hear of his poise, how he won his first Masters...
