Women’s soccer adjusting into Big East play

Seton Hall women’s soccer team has struggled early this season, going 0-4-2 in out-of-conference play. The root of the team’s problem is as simple as the purpose of the game: score. With only three goals on 49 shots, the Pirates are shooting a six percent success rate, while their opponent are just over 18 percent. The opportunities have been there in many games. In the team’s latest 1-0 loss to Marist at Owen T. Carroll Field, the...

Women’s soccer unable to convert chances at home, lose to Marist

Seton Hall had a season high 19 shots against Marist on Thursday, but were unable to find the back of the net as the visiting Red Foxes took the 1-0 win. The game started slowly for the Hall and became more frustrating as time progressed. Eventually, Marist broke the scoreless tie off a corner kick in the 18th minute. The goal was one of Marist’s three shots in the half, as Seton Hall tripled its output with nine shots, but with none...

With backs against the wall, Seton Hall showed up to the second set with a better focus. The Pirates were...

Success starting at the plate for SHU’s win streak

In its past six games, Seton Hall baseball is averaging more than nine runs per game with four of those resulting in double-digit runs scored. It is no coincidence that each of those five games resulted in a win for the Pirates, who now look to finish out their schedule in the same way with hopes of reaching the Big East Tournament. Each game has had a different story line. However, there are some consistencies. In each of the six...

Westbrook’s historic season should be admired rather than critiqued

Russell Westbrook is on the verge of completing one of the most legendary seasons in NBA history, as he is about to finish the year averaging a triple-double in scoring, rebounds and assists. This feat has only been completed one time in the league’s history, when Oscar Robertson did it in 1964. Clearly, this is an extraordinary task, which some of the best players in the history of the game have never achieved. In Michael Jordan’s...

Stealing bases no longer a Seton Hall specialty

In 2016, the Seton Hall baseball team was nationally known for stealing bases. As the No. 1 team in the country in that category, the Pirates made their mark on the NCAA. Stealing bases is a unique advantage to have over opposing teams. Singles become doubles, and a walk could turn into a runner in scoring position without even touching the ball at the plate. That being said, whether Seton Hall could keep this advantage for the 2017...

Bozzella talks Pirates’ losing season, ‘inconsistency’

Women’s basketball coach Tony Bozzella has changed the program around in the last three seasons.

However, this season was different for Bozzella, who coached a young team to a 12-19 record. Bozzella admitted it was a hard season to get through and the season was not up to the program’s new...
