Pirates’ depth on display in opening night win over Fairleigh Dickinson

Nearly every player that dressed for the Seton Hall men’s basketball team, including two walk-ons, saw the floor on Friday in a dominant 90-68 opening night win over Fairleigh Dickinson. The cold temperatures that hit the Newark, N.J. area did not stop fans from coming to Prudential Center to produce an atmosphere before tip-off that surpassed any November game in recent years.

Analyzing the winning formula for women’s basketball

When Seton Hall women’s basketball head coach Tony Bozzella lost his 2015-16 starting rotation and proceeded to go about filling the void with six freshmen and a talented transfer, he never hid from the fact that last season was going to be a year of building from the ground up.

Athletes as seniors normally have their roles figured out.

Although, Seton Hall men’s basketball has one notable exception to that rule in the form of Khadeen Carrington. Carrington is not adjusting to a new environment, as the guard from Bishop Loughlin High...

Transfers embrace challenge to return Men’s soccer to prominence

Tied at one, on the road and vying to keep their Big East Tournament hopes alive, Seton Hall got a big moment from a player that was a year ago playing across the country at Las Positas, a junior college in Livermore, Calif. That player was Marco Neves and that moment was Neves’ fourth goal of the season.

U.S. Soccer’s problem is focused at the youth level

“It can never happen” turned into “it was never supposed to happen” on Oct. 10, when the United States men’s national team failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. Since then, many think articles have been written about how and why the United States failed to qualify; a feat that, at this stage in the development of United States soccer, and in this region of qualifying, should always be reached. Although, that question fails to...

Women’s soccer using ‘31 as one’ to stick together amidst adversity

When a team is without a win after 14 regular-season games, what holds the locker room together? For the Seton Hall women’s soccer team, that answer has been a simple phrase: 31 as one. The message, which signifies all 31 players on the roster being unified as one collective whole, came to Pirates coach Rick Stainton during one of the team’s many preseason meetings in August. The coach figured the phrase had left some mark on his...

Men’s basketball freshmen learn ‘fundamentals’ on and off the court

Experience is abundant throughout the Seton Hall men’s basketball team, but there are still three freshmen: Myles Cale, Sandro Mamukelashvili and Jordan Walker, who have yet to dip their toes into college basketball waters. Still, despite their lack of collegiate experience, maturity is not something lacking from the three young newcomers. The trio gained perspective from a two-day event that took place in New York, N.Y. called Big...

Men’s soccer remains focused after 0-3 week

From the moment Seton Hall men’s soccer coach Gerson Echeverry stepped foot on Seton Hall’s campus as an 18-year-old, his goal has been to win the Big East regular season, postseason and compete in the NCAA Tournament. And while his teams recently have fallen short of such lofty aspirations, the 2017 Pirates revealed signs in non-conference play that they are capable of the program’s first postseason berth since 2012. “I think this...

Why New Jersey has underachieved in college football

With the 13th pick, the Arizona Cardinals select Haason Reddick, linebacker, from Haddon Heights, N.J. No, those weren’t the exact words that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said when he spoke on the podium at the NFL Draft on April 27. Although, if he and others that announced names did reference towns and not colleges New Jersey towns would have been mentioned eight times throughout proceedings.
