Stealing the show: Butina’s journey from Croatia

The food may not be as good in America as it is in Croatia, but Inja Butina has a taste for standing out on the court no matter the location. The junior from Zagreb, Croatia came to South Orange to be a part of the 2017-18 Pirate roster, but her first time in the United States came on Kansas soil. “I didn’t know what to expect, I mean, out of all states, Kansas?,” Butina said with a smile. “But I loved the people, and I loved it...

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...

‘Loyalty’ a contradictory term in NBA

With the NBA trade deadline approaching on Feb. 8, there are players that will soon be on the move as front offices look to move pieces. Some of those players may have already experienced being traded, but others may be moving for the first time. By the time offseason comes, the narrative changes – players who are up for free agency can decide their own fate. These players, though, get treated differently. A team’s front office...

Pirates need more threes to return to form

Seton Hall has missed its three-point shot.

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...

Seton Hall runs out of gas as Xavier rallies for come-from-behind victory

Deflections, second-chance points, drawn fouls and dunks made up many moments that ignited a sold-out Prudential Center crowd and a hungry Seton Hall team. But those moments dwindled as the second half progressed, allowing No. 11 Xavier to take over for a 73-64 victory against No. 19 Seton Hall on Saturday afternoon. Seton Hall went as far as its defense allowed it to. In the first half, the Pirates held Xavier to 37.9 percent...

Desi Rodriguez tweet seems to refute Kevin Willard’s benching explanation

The Seton Hall Pirates did not have a chance to talk to the media following a disappointing performance that saw them fall to the Creighton Bluejays 80-63 on Wednesday night. Instead, some players went to social media to make their thoughts known, including Desi Rodriguez, who was benched for all but six minutes of play against the Bluejays. Coach Kevin Willard’s only post-game availability came on AM 970’s “The Answer” as...

While the clash occurred when No. 23 Seton Hall held a 22-point lead, the Pirates went on to defeat the Manhattan Jaspers 74-62 in a...

Visit to September 11 Memorial & Museum inspires Seton Hall

A firetruck stands in the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, crushed and mangled. On it reads the words “Ladder Co. 3” for the group of firefighters that manned it. The entire Seton Hall men’s basketball team gathered around the crushed truck on Nov. 27 during a visit to the museum, listening to the words of the lone survivor whose crew rode on the truck on Sept. 11, 2001. “Ladder 3 had great comradery,” Bill Spade, a 1981...

Rodriguez looks like an All-Big East first team player

Out of Seton Hall’s three 1,000-point scorers in Khadeen Carrington, Angel Delgado and Desi Rodriguez, just Carrington and Delgado were named to the preseason all-Big East first team on Oct. 18. Xavier’s Trevon Bluiett, Creighton’s Marcus Foster and Butler’s Kelan Martin rounded out the first team roster. Rodriguez fell not to a second team selection, but to a preseason all-Big East honorable mention. Six games into the season,...
