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...

Myles Powell returns to form, Seton Hall hangs on for win over Georgetown

After falling to a desperate Xavier team to suffer its first Big East loss of the season last weekend, Seton Hall came out firing on all cylinders and held on at the end to secure a 78-71 win over Georgetown. Undoubtedly, Kevin Willard has to be thrilled with his team’s electric start in the nation’s capital. For a team notoriously slow out of the gate, the Pirates started the game on a 16-0 run behind four hits from beyond the arc –...

Seton Hall fights off DePaul to extend winning streak to 10

If you’re Seton Hall, it’s probably best to wipe most of the Wednesday night affair with DePaul out of your memories forever. Despite winning 64-57, getting Sandro Mamukelashvili back for the first time since Dec. 8, having Kevin Willard pass PJ Carlesimo for the most Big East wins in program history and Myles Powell becoming the fourth-highest scoring player in Seton Hall history, the game was about as ugly as you can get. With four...

Seton Hall outlasts Providence to remain perfect in Big East play

On the night where Myles Powell was honored for being the fifth player in Seton Hall history to hit 2,000 career points, head coach Kevin Willard made a little history of his own by tying PJ Carlesimo for all-time Big East wins at 78. Willard has been around long enough, from 2010 until present day, to know the drill. In usual coy fashion, he brushed off the record in favor of the fact that Carlesimo coached in an era with 16 Big East...

Pirates relinquish Hardwood Classic Trophy in embarrassing blowout

Two years ago, Rutgers ended the 2017 Garden State Hardwood Classic on a 17-2 run to stun Seton Hall with a loss. This year, the Scarlet Knights picked up right where they left off, starting the game on a 19-3 run en route to a 68-48 blowout of the Pirates. On top of the bruise to Seton Hall’s ego, the team also lost Preseason All-American Myles Powell for the entire second half due to being evaluated for a head injury. In a raucous...

Myles Powell, Alexis Lewis receive weekly honors

The Seton Hall men’s and women’s have been off to a hot start for the 2019-20 season. Myles Powell is naturally leading the way on the men’s side. On the women’s side, it is not as clear. After Shadeen Samuels went down with an injury against Princeton, the rest of the team needed to step up and did. Most notably, Desiree Elmore and Alexis Lewis picked up the pace. Due to her efforts, Lewis found herself named to the Big East Weekly...
