Seton Hall looking to get over the hump after falling short in 2018

Last season, Seton Hall found itself one win away from winning a Big East title for the first time since 2011.The Pirates fell just short of accomplishing that feat, but the groundwork for the 2019 season was laid in a season-ending loss to St. John’s in the Big East Championship game. Expectations surrounding the program are at an all-time high and rightfully so, as Seton Hall has the foundation in place to not only win the...

DeVito at the head of Seton Hall’s rotation in 2019

In 2018, Ricky DeVito took a leap bullpen piece to ace of the pitching staff and Big East Pitcher of the Year. Now, he is preparing himself to take an even bigger step in 2019. With Shane McCarthy, Billy Layne Jr. and Cullen Dana no longer in the picture, DeVito is at the head of Seton Hall’s starting rotation for the first time in his career. Gone are the days of DeVito turning to his veteran counterparts for advice, as he is now the...

Baseball prepares for life away from home

It’s one thing to go on the road and win a series against a conference rival, but it’s a whole new ballgame when every game you play is on the road. That is what Seton Hall is forced to deal with in 2019, as Owen T. Carroll is out of commission for the season. With their home ballpark undergoing renovations, the Pirates will take their show on the road for the duration of the year as they try to build on a 2018 season that nearly...

Kevin Willard’s schedule gripes are warranted

Kevin Willard has never been a fan of the way the Big East puts together its conference schedule. From the day he took over, Willard has always had something to say about Seton Hall’s conference slate. From rugged weeks against stacked opponents to the ridiculous 9 p.m. time slot that the Pirates often found themselves relegated to, Willard has never been shy about voicing his displeasure about the schedule. Most of the time,...

For true fans of the game, Super Bowl LIII was far from boring

For the majority of those who tuned in, Super Bowl LIII could be summed up in one word: boring. Neither the New England Patriots or Los Angeles Rams could get anything going on offense. The first quarter came and went without any points, as a string of three and outs and stalled drives put a damper on the action. The Patriots got on the board in the second quarter, but not in the form of a touchdown, and took a 3-0 lead into halftime....

Turnovers have been common theme during recent losing streak

Plenty of problems have plagued Seton Hall in its recent four-game losing streak, but none of those problems are more concerning than the Pirates’ alarming turnover rate over the past two weeks. Prior to the mid-season skid, Seton Hall had turned the ball over 53 times in its first four Big East games. Fifty-three turnovers in such a short span is not ideal, but it’s also not terrible for a young and inexperienced team going through...

Sloppy play gets the best of Seton Hall in loss to No. 18 Villanova

Seton Hall had a week off to recharge, get healthy and work out the kinks that had plagued the Pirates throughout their recent losing streak. The expectation was that they would come out energized and hungry to end their three-game skid. Instead, Seton Hall couldn’t get out of its own way and turned in arguably its worst showing of the season in an 80-52 loss to No. 18 Villanova on Sunday. “I think Nova came out fighting more than us....

Don’t give up on Seton Hall despite mid-season struggles

Myles Powell and Michael Nzei have been here before. When Powell was a freshman and Nzei was a redshirt sophomore, Seton Hall sat at 3-6 in Big East play at the halfway point of the conference schedule. The Pirates seemed destined for the NIT, until a late-season stretch featuring wins over two ranked opponents propelled them into the NCAA Tournament. The same applied last season, as a string of four consecutive losses in the middle...

Seton Hall’s defense disappears in loss to DePaul

Since taking over the program in 2010, Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard had never witnessed a more dismal defensive performance than the one the Pirates turned in against DePaul on Saturday night. Behind 52 percent shooting from the field, a 90 percent showing at the free throw line and an eye-popping 42-19 advantage on the glass which resulted in 25 second-chance points, DePaul nearly hit the century mark and completed the season...

Seton Hall’s comeback falls short against Marquette

Following a turnover-filled first half, Seton Hall had a lot of work to do if it wanted to overcome a 10-point halftime deficit. The Pirates came out of the gate strong in the second half and nearly came all the way back, but it was not enough to down No. 21 Marquette in the end. Led by 26 points from star point guard Markus Howard, the Golden Eagles staved off a feisty Seton Hall comeback effort and held on for a 70-66 victory on...

Powell leads Seton Hall to bounce back win over Butler

Following a disappointing outing against DePaul over the weekend, Myles Powell knew he would have to be better heading into Wednesday night’s game against Butler. Powell did well to put his 4-13 shooting performance against DePaul in the rearview mirror, as he led all scorers with 31 points on 8-15 shooting from the field and a 13-15 showing at the free throw line and helped Seton Hall bounce back with a 76-75 win over the Bulldogs....
