Florida State transfer Ike Obiagu commits to Seton Hall

The Seton Hall men’s basketball program added a seven-foot certified shot-stopper to command the interior of the paint, with Jon Rothstein reporting that Ike Obiagu (pronounced: I-Key O-Bee-Ah-Gu) has committed to the Pirates, following his announcement to transfer from the Seminoles of Florida State. Obiagu, a native of Abuja, Nigeria, was a four-star recruit, ranked as the No. 4 center and No. 47 prospect overall in the Class of...

DeVoti, trailblazer in radio, ready to broadcast word of God

Growing up in Montclair, N.J., Matt DeVoti dreamed of doing three things as a child: playing for the New York Yankees, broadcasting on the radio and being deeply involved in the Catholic Church. The first of those aspirations proved to be unattainable, but DeVoti spent 38 years from his beginning at WSOU living out the second. After a lifetime of faith, DeVoti is on his way to truly actualizing the third. DeVoti has been studying in...

Softball’s seniors near end, but impact will be a constant

Like the exit velocity on an Alexis Walkden home run or Allie Prukop line drive, the speed of an Alannah Basile fastball or the quickness of Sara Foster defensively in the infield, four years flew by for the Seton Hall softball class of 2018. As freshmen in the fall of 2014, the four Pirate newcomers came to South Orange with their families – Walkden from Cibolo, Texas, Basile from Levittown, N.Y., Foster from Long Beach, Calif., and...

Walkden leaves behind legendary legacy at Seton Hall

Sun soaked the 300-plus fans that lined the bleachers and leftfield fence at Mike Sheppard Sr. Field on April 22. Blue and white balloons hung from bleacher corners, posters hung from fences and a mural of the four softball seniors: Alannah Basile, Sara Foster, Alyssa Prukop and Alexis Walkden, rested behind home plate. Perhaps revitalized by the scene, Seton Hall did not come out like a team that had just dropped both ends of a...

Men’s basketball hires Tony Skinn as assistant head coach

Million dollar smiles: Men’s soccer captain connects with the homeless in South Orange

Day has turned to night and Pedro Neto is making his way to the South Orange train station. It is a trip he often makes, but rarely ever to actually step foot on the train platform. His purpose for being there is far greater. He rounds Cottage Street and makes the turn onto South Orange Avenue. His schedule is overflowing with commitments from being a key member of the men’s soccer team to his demands with classes, but Neto finds time...

FIFA, for once, take ethical stand to stop another anti-LGBT World Cup

International soccer has too often been marred with scandal, ranging from bribery to match-fixing to prejudice. The latter of those three is particularly ridiculous, considering that soccer is a game played by everyone. It is the beautiful game primarily for the wheel of color, variety of religions and different sexual orientations that all share a common-ground with a love of the sport. That beauty is threatened by one of only two...

Molina endures road less traveled to become SHU baseball linchpin

Seton Hall senior shortstop Al Molina does not hesitate when diving for a line drive through the gap. He has experienced lows before. A standout for Red Bank Catholic High School, Molina was handed what seemed on the surface like two golden tickets during his senior season of high school in 2014. As it turned out, those tickets were fool’s gold. Molina had to choose between going pro after getting drafted in the 29th-round by the...

Softball’s Janae Barracato an unstoppable freshman force

Janae Barracato may just be a freshman, but she carries herself with the unwavering demeanor of a senior. No situation has slowed down the infielder-turned-center-fielder from Hempstead, N.Y., whether it be a new position, long-distance travel or the heightened level of pitching in the Big East. In just the first 30 days of her inaugural collegiate season, Barracato traveled to San Antonio and Huntsville, Texas, Greensboro, N.C., in...

Q&A with former SHU baseball player and current Director of Baseball Operations, Zack Weigel

Zack Weigel arrived at Seton Hall in the fall of 2012. By his own admission, offers from Division I schools to play college baseball were not flying through his doors like the pop flies he would eventually catch at Owen T. Carroll Field. 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...

Seton Hall fans take to Twitter to voice appreciation to seniors following NCAA Tournament exit

Seton Hall men’s basketball fans had some time before the final buzzer rang on Saturday to digest that the four-year run for a transformative group of players, and men, was over.

Previewing Seton Hall-Kansas with The University Daily Kansan

The Seton Hall men’s basketball team plays the biggest game of an era on Saturday, going up against No. 1 seed Kansas. The Jayhawks come into the game as a favorite with longtime head coach Bill Self and integral seniors in Devonté Graham and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, but much is unknown about the team beyond that. To help fill in the missing pieces, The Setonian got in touch with Kansas’ student voice, The University Daily Kansan, and...
