NEWARK – The Seton Hall men’s basketball team saw its three-game winning streak snapped on Wednesday night as it fell to Xavier by a final score of 70-69.

With Big East at boiling point, time is now for Women’s Basketball

Logic was tossed aside last weekend in the Big East – disregarded and downright teased. When the Seton Hall women’s basketball team fell to last place Xavier at home, many expected a focused effort on Sunday, but few imagined a straightforward, 21-point win over second place Butler.  Surely Butler did not, although warning signs were there after a mere 73-68 win on Friday against ninth-place St. John’s in Queens.  Xavier,...
