The Big East has opted to go in a different direction, as commissioner Val Ackerman...

Seton Hall succumbs to hot-shooting Creighton, settles for share of regular season title

Throughout a grueling Big East slate, Seton Hall made its name and built up its NCAA Tournament by going on the road and racking up Quadrant I wins. Unfortunately, the Pirates didn’t have one last road kill left in them. With an outright Big East regular-season title on the line, Seton Hall couldn’t overcome a red-hot shooting Creighton squad, falling by a final score off 77-60. With the loss, the Pirates settle for only a share of...

Villanova spoils Seton Hall’s senior night celebration

It’s fitting that the program that has dealt Seton Hall its fair share of heartbreak over the years was the one to come into the Prudential Center and put a damper on Myles Powell, Quincy McKnight, Romaro Gill and Asiah Avent’s senior night celebration. Facing a season sweep at the hands of Pirates in front of a record-setting Prudential Center crowd, Villanova dialed in and delivered an A-plus performance en route to a 79-77 victory...

Willard pushes right buttons as Pirates rebound

Kevin Willard knew exactly what he was doing when he uttered the words that sent shock- waves through the Seton Hall basketball community following the Pirates’ 74-71 loss to Providence two weeks ago. Visibly frustrated throughout the game, Willard was not happy with his team once the final buzzer sounded. Seton Hall lacked energy in the first half, falling behind by as many as 25 points in the opening minutes. The Pirates put...

Hot start, balanced scoring propel No. 16 Seton Hall to blowout victory over St. John’s

It had been a while since Seton Hall put together a dominant first 20 minutes of basketball. Sluggish starts have plagued the Pirates the last two weeks. It cost them games against Creighton and Providence last week and nearly cost them another one against No. 21 Butler earlier this week. On Sunday afternoon against St. John’s, though, Seton Hall turned in the first half performance that everyone has been waiting for. Thank to...

Seton Hall scores first road win against Villanova in 26 years

If there was ever going to be a Seton Hall team to snap its 26-year losing streak at Villanova, it’s this one. The Pirates found themselves at a crossroads with 9:41 remaining. Myles Powell picked up his fourth foul, sending him to the bench with Seton Hall holding a slim 46-42 lead. Faced with their star on the bench, Quincy McKnight battling foul trouble of his own and a raucous Villanova crowd, the Pirates could have folded and...

Quincy McKnight suffers leg injury in loss to Xavier

Seton Hall’s loss to Xavier halted its 10-game winning streak and perfect start to Big East play, but the Pirates’ biggest loss of the day came just before the under-four timeout. Quincy McKnight’s left knee severely buckled on a drive to the rim and was unable to put any sort of pressure on it as he was helped off the floor and taken back to the locker room for further evaluation. Here is a replay of Quincy McKnight’s injury....

How a Star was Born: Myles Powell’s path to glory fueled by work ethic and big heart

One conversation with Myles Powell is all it takes to realize he is different than other star players in college basketball. Despite the numerous accolades to his name and the fame that has come along with being a 2019 preseason All-American and the face of Seton Hall basketball, Powell prefers not to talk too much about himself. Even after games where he single-handedly wills Seton Hall to victory, Powell steers the conversation...

Seton Hall overcomes turnover bug to continue record Big East start against St. John’s

Another day, another come from behind victory for Seton Hall. Three days after turning in its cleanest performance of the season against Butler, it looked like the turnover bug was going to get the best of Seton Hall against St. John’s at Madison Square Garden. The Pirates turned the ball over 15 times in the first half and trailed 43-30 at halftime. In typical Seton Hall fashion, it refused to go away without a fight. The Pirates put...
