Seton Hall listed as No. 8 seed, will face NC State in NCAA Tournament

After being announced on TBS’s Selection Sunday show as an NCAA Tournament team, Seton Hall is allotted as a No. 8 seed and will play No. 9 seed NC State in Wichita, Kan. on Thursday, March 15 at 4:30 p.m. EST. The No. 8 selection comes as a surprise to many, as Seton Hall was listed as a No. 7 seed by all major bracketologists prior to the draw. As a No. 8 seed, the Pirates would have to face No. 1 seed Kansas in the second...

Pirates bow out of Big East Tournament in quarterfinal exit

Madison Square Garden is a setting Seton Hall’s seniors have dominated in their four years, yet Thursday it was a stage for breakdown rather than triumph. Seton Hall’s quick start against the Bulldogs was just a flash in the pan, as No. 6-seed Butler fought back from a 14-point deficit to take the late lead and defeat No. 3-seed Seton Hall, 75-74. The Pirates’ 14-point edge came early and on a wave of momentum. A balanced scoring...

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...

Seton Hall’s Senior Day: The planning behind the one-of-a-kind celebration

It will be a moment four years in the making, with the class set to be honored prior to the game against Butler with framed jerseys and acknowledgment from...

MLB’s moves to shorten game mean nothing without punishment

When I was younger, I did not like drinking milk. I did whatever it took to not drink it. I sat in my seat for hours after dinner because I was not able to leave the table until I finished my milk. Eventually I would drink it down because my punishment for not drinking it was not getting dessert and I loved dessert. The punishment snapped me out of my habits, but Major League Baseball does not believe in that philosophy, at least not...

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. 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...

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...
