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 –...

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....

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...

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...
