NCAA Tournament seeding in question after early Big East Tournament exit

For the second consecutive year, Seton Hall could not box out. In last year’s Big East Tournament semifinals, the Pirates failed to box out Villanova star Josh Hart in the closing seconds, leading to a putback layup that wound up being the deciding factor. This season, with the clock winding down in the tournament quarterfinals, Butler point guard Kamar Baldwin blew by Seton Hall’s Michael Nzei on a pick and roll and found himself...

Seton Hall seniors steal show in victory over Butler

On a night that was dedicated to honoring one of the most iconic senior classes in program history, it was only fitting that two members of it took over and helped the Pirates lock up the No. 3 seed in the Big East Tournament. Thanks to 25 points from Khadeen Carrington and 21 points and 10 rebounds from Angel Delgado, the Pirates held on for a 77-70 victory over a resilient Butler team that remained within striking distance...

Willard showed proper initiative in FBI allegations response

Since the City College of New York point-shaving scandal of 1951, college basketball has not been a clean sport by any stretch of the imagination. Despite the various point-shaving and recruiting scandals that have turned college basketball on its head over the years, Yahoo Sports’ latest report of corruption within recruiting released on Feb. 23 takes the cake as the biggest story in the history of college basketball. From the...

Seton Hall freshmen finding their footing at the right time

Sometimes, all it takes for a young player to get comfortable is some playing time. Through Seton Hall’s first 25 games, the freshmen trio of Myles Cale, Sandro Mamukelashvili and Jordan Walker were an afterthought for the most part, relegated to small roles in which all three players saw sporadic playing time. When it came time to call upon them in conference play, not a single member of Kevin Willard’s 2017 recruiting class looked...

Seton Hall seniors take adversity in stride

A stretch like the one Seton Hall endured over the last two weeks showed signs of a broken team, but it is nowhere Seton Hall’s senior class has not been before. Ever since the core four of Khadeen Carrington, Desi Rodriguez, Ismael Sanogo and Angel Delgado set foot on campus, adversity has become a common theme. As freshmen, they were part of a team that went from  top-25 to turmoil. As sophomores, embarrassing early season losses to...

Rejuvenated Seton Hall hangs on to defeat DePaul behind Rodriguez’s career-high

Over the past few weeks, Seton Hall has been missing an element of its game that it thrived on in the beginning of the season – energetic play. In the form of diving for loose balls, deflecting passes and slapping the floor, a rejuvenated Seton Hall team came out on Sunday afternoon and defeated DePaul by a final score of 82-77 to end a four-game losing streak. The victory did not come easily, as DePaul hung around until the end....

Seton Hall freshmen not living up to preseason expectations

In October 2017, Khadeen Carrington, Desi Rodriguez and Angel Delgado gathered at Madison Square Garden for their last Big East Media Day session. With the three upperclassmen in the building, the expectation was that the conversation would be about the three 1,000-point scorers. Instead, Carrington, Rodriguez and Delgado spent most of the afternoon praising freshmen Myles Cale, Sandro Mamukelashvili and Jordan Walker. Even Seton Hall...

Eagles’ players skipping White House visit serves as latest Trump boycott

For years, visiting the White House after winning the Super Bowl has been a tradition. However, certain Philadelphia Eagles players will not be taking part in the team’s visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. after their championship win this year. Since Donald Trump took office as president last January, the president and NFL players have not necessarily seen eye to eye. While players knelt during the national anthem to protest police...

Rebounding record cements Delgado in Big East lore

In 1987, Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard got his first glimpse at what a dominant rebounder looked like. As a ball boy for the 1987 Syracuse team that made it to the Final Four while his father was an assistant coach, Willard had a courtside seat to witness center Derrick Coleman pull down rebounds at a historic pace in his sophomore year. As the years passed, Coleman got better on the glass and finished his Big East career with...

Sanogo’s new-found jumper providing SHU with new element on offense

Throughout Ismael Sanogo’s first three seasons at Seton Hall, there were not many moments where he was spotting up to take a jump shot. A career 3.4-point per game scorer, almost all of Sanogo’s baskets came from close range. For Sanogo, a 10 to 15 foot jumper was out of the question. Now, seemingly out of nowhere, Sanogo has gone from an offensive liability to Seton Hall’s secret weapon. The first step in Sanogo’s progression as a...

Thick-skinned Macura proves to be thorn in Seton Hall’s side

Constant boos, vicious chants and a raucous crowd is usually enough to get under the skin of a visiting player, but Xavier’s J.P. Macura is not the average opponent. A hostile environment is exactly what fuels Macura’s fire and if any proof of that was necessary, look no further than his 27-point outburst against Seton Hall on Saturday afternoon. With All-American forward Trevon Bluiett struggling to find his rhythm, Macura weathered...

Myles Powell proving to be spark veteran Seton Hall needs

Throughout the course of conference play, teams are going to experience highs and lows, especially in a power conference like the Big East where no game is a walk in the park. Some nights, teams come out on fire and full of energy on both ends of the court. Others, teams come out sluggish and deflated. That was the case for the Seton Hall on Jan. 9, as a trip to Milwaukee to take on Marquette turned into a nightmare for the Pirates....
