Tennis ready for major turnover after cut-short season

On a tight-knit squad of eight players, the Seton Hall tennis team will graduate five. Out of all the programs at the school, this is by far the highest turnover rate. Mekeila Erspamer, Minja Gligic, Anniek Jansen, Michal Matson and Melody Taal all had their undergraduate careers ended early by COVID-19. Now, if all choose to leave and not express an extra year of eligibility, the tennis team will look much different next season....

Senior spotlight: golf unable to build on fall success

In a perfect world, the Seton Hall women’s and men’s golf teams would be competing at the Big East Championship this weekend and next weekend, respectively. However, as is well known, that plan was derailed due to season cancellations. For both programs, a chance to build upon a successful fall season has been denied. The women, led by Natalie Desjardins, and the men, led by Clay White, each had formidable rosters and looked to excel...

Senior Spotlight: consistency marks baseball’s quintet

After playing their junior seasons away from home due to the construction of Mike Sheppard, Sr. Stadium at Owen T. Carroll Field, the Seton Hall baseball team’s seniors had the 2020 season vanish into thin air due to COVID-19. The Pirates started the 2020 season with 13 games on the road, going 5-8 over that stretch. Then, on March 11, the first day without in-person classes for Seton Hall students, the field was christened with a...

Senior Spotlight: softball leaves behind impressive resume

Despite an NCAA Committee ruling on Monday afternoon that spring sport athletes will receive an extra year of eligibility due to a lost season under COVID-19 scares, there is still a rightfully sentimental feeling surrounding senior players who had their swan songs ripped out from under their feet. Graduating college is a monumental step in life. For most athletes, this means the end of a career and an official shift into the working...

As the Seton Hall women’s basketball team heads into the last weekend of the regular season with a game against Xavier on Feb. 28 and one against Butler on March 1, the race in the Big East is as tight as ever. Currently, there are five teams placed third through seventh that are within two games grasp of one another as the season comes to a close. Even the second place team, Marquette, despite being out of range of Seton Hall, is a...

Senior column: Greek life has so much more to give at Seton Hall

Coming into college, I had absolutely zero interest in Greek life or anything surrounding it. Photo via Instagram/@phideltshu Granted, it’s easy not to know anything about the system prior to college. The whole thing is not what you expect, despite Seton Hall being nowhere near equivalent to the likes of the University of Alabama or Florida International University in the same regard. Now, nearly three years later, it is clear to me...

Mamukelashvili Magic: Seton Hall snaps two-game losing streak at the buzzer

If you ask the basketball gods how they would have ended the 74-72 nail-biting victory for Seton Hall over Butler on Wednesday night, it happened exactly like it they would have liked. Sandro Mamukelashvili found a way to catch and toss in a lob from Quincy McKnight with only 0.6 seconds left to win it for the Pirates on Cancer Night at the Prudential Center with his father, a cancer survivor, was in attendance for the first time...

By the number: Myles Cale’s production has regressed

Myles Cale was relegated to riding the pine to start the game on Feb. 5 against Georgetown. For the 6-foot-6 junior, it was the first time that he was not on the floor for the opening tip for Seton Hall since his freshman year – the Round of 32 loss to Kansas that  ended the Pirates’ hopeful March run. Prior to that game, Cale had started the last five to end that season, including in a win over North Carolina State to propel the...

Seton Hall falters against No. 23 Creighton as Myles Powell goes ice cold

As Myles Powell launched up a three with 1.4 seconds left and saw it fall, the usually exuberant superstar looked defeated instead in a clear indication of the effort his team put forth against a steady Creighton team on Wednesday night. Powell finished at an abysmal 3-for-16 overall from the field and 1-for-11 from beyond the arc as Seton Hall fell, 87-82, for the second straight time at the Prudential Center. Renee Nunez/Staff...
