Pirates’ valiant effort falls just short against DePaul

March is a do or die time for college basketball teams, a time to leave everything on the court because each game could be your last. The Seton Hall women’s basketball team did just that on Sunday evening against DePaul in the Big East tournament semifinals, ultimately falling to the Blue Demons 83-80. The Pirates hovered within striking distance throughout and had multiple looks from three from Alexis Lewis to tie the game in the...

Pirates Cruise Past Butler to open Big East Tournament Play

Heart over height. A credo for basketball players who are not blessed with the excess height that is perceived as necessary to succeed at the sport. Seton Hall women’s basketball freshman Lauren Park-Lane is one of these players whose ability shines through despite her diminutive stature. Park-Lane had 17 points and seven assists on Saturday afternoon to lead the Pirates to a thoroughly dominant 83-57 win over Butler in the...

Women’s golf has lofty goals for spring season

The  women’s   golf  team  and coach Natalie Desjardins enter the spring with high expectations. The team is seasoned and experienced, due in large part to the production of its four seniors, Lizzie Win, Maddie Sager, Sammie Staudt and Carolina  Ronchel-Salas. Desjardins came to Seton Hall in 2017 from LIU Brooklyn, arriving in South Orange a year after three of her seniors did. Desjardins’ defection from LIU spurred Ronchel- Salas to...

Kobe Bryant leaves incredible legacies on and off the court

My father can still recall it despite the passage of over 50 years. He was 9-years-old and walking home from school when a woman informed him that President Kennedy had died. My mother still vividly remembers what she was doing when she heard John Lennon was assassinated. Moments like Kennedy and Lennon’s untimely deaths remain indelible in the minds of nearly everyone who was alive at the time. While I listened to my parents’...

Success from beyond the arc fuels Pirates’ winning streak

Aging men in barber shops talk about a time when basketball was played in the paint. Offenses revolved around the center and the two hand set shot and the “skyhook” were king. The three-point shot did not exist yet and taking a long-range shot was unheard of. These old tales seem crazy to young basketball fans in 2020. Three-pointers are a crucial element of the modern game, and players like Steph Curry, Kyle Korver and Ray Allen have...

Transfers hope to play key roles for women’s basketball in 2019

Changing schools is a momentous decision for any student, as starting at a new school is a rough adjustment for students at any age, be it kindergarten or graduate school. For an NCAA student athlete, the decision to transfer schools comes with the added factor of having to sit out a year, so the perfect fit needs to be found to prevent a second transfer and another dormant season. Four members of Seton Hall women’s basketball made...

Seton Hall loses to Villanova, misses out on postseason

The Seton Hall men’s soccer team lost a heartbreaker tonight 1-0 to the visiting Villanova Wildcats, conceding a set piece goal in the 54th minute to Villanova’s Shane Bradley. The loss spoils what could have been a doubly special senior night. Not only was tonight the last game at Owen T. Carroll field for the program’s eight seniors, but it had a chance to be memorable due to the fact that the Pirates could have clinched a Big East...
