Women’s basketball chaneling its strengths ahead of Big East Tournament

With 29 games in the book, the Seton Hall women’s basketball team is headed to Chicago for the Big East Tournament from March 3 to 6, where the Pirates hope to take part in three more. The Big East Tournament is always a challenge, but the bracket is even more difficult for a reeling Pirates team. The Hall ended its 2017-18 regular season on a five-game losing streak, its longest of the season. The end-of-season slide meant the...

Willard showed proper initiative in FBI allegations response

Since the City College of New York point-shaving scandal of 1951, college basketball has not been a clean sport by any stretch of the imagination. Despite the various point-shaving and recruiting scandals that have turned college basketball on its head over the years, Yahoo Sports’ latest report of corruption within recruiting released on Feb. 23 takes the cake as the biggest story in the history of college basketball. From the...

Seton Hall freshmen finding their footing at the right time

Sometimes, all it takes for a young player to get comfortable is some playing time. Through Seton Hall’s first 25 games, the freshmen trio of Myles Cale, Sandro Mamukelashvili and Jordan Walker were an afterthought for the most part, relegated to small roles in which all three players saw sporadic playing time. When it came time to call upon them in conference play, not a single member of Kevin Willard’s 2017 recruiting class looked...

Pirates cold shooting and lack of rebounding leads to loss on the road

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team fell, 71-52, to the Georgetown Hoyas on Friday afternoon in its first of three road games. The loss is a sour note for the team, who managed to go 4-1 over its last five games entering Friday, including come-from-behind wins against Xavier on Feb. 2 and Butler on Feb. 4. The loss today drops the Pirates conference record to 7-7, with their fifth-place position still intact. Dionna White proved to...

Pirates prevail as tables turn in final minutes

In a game of contrasting styles where the Pirates trailed late, the hardy Seton Hall women’s basketball team overcame Xavier on Friday night by a final score of 58-53. With momentum swinging throughout the evening, a boiling-over of emotions under the basket with 3:19 to play proved to be the act that swung the pendulum in the Pirates favor. Down 50-47, Inja Butina was fouled on a drive to the basket by Xavier’s A’riana Gray, who...

Pirates need more threes to return to form

Seton Hall has missed its three-point shot. The Pirates have lost three of their last four games, going from the No. 13 team in the country and atop the Big East leaderboard to falling out of the AP Top 25 Poll and tumbling to fifth place in the conference with a 4-3 Big East record. In that four-game stretch, the team’s offensive production has taken a dip, averaging 66.3 points per game compared to 81.4 prior. While field goal...

Thick-skinned Macura proves to be thorn in Seton Hall’s side

Constant boos, vicious chants and a raucous crowd is usually enough to get under the skin of a visiting player, but Xavier’s J.P. Macura is not the average opponent. A hostile environment is exactly what fuels Macura’s fire and if any proof of that was necessary, look no further than his 27-point outburst against Seton Hall on Saturday afternoon. With All-American forward Trevon Bluiett struggling to find his rhythm, Macura weathered...
