Seton Hall collapse in second half as No. 17 Creighton pull off comeback win

The story of Wednesday night’s loss to No. 17 Creighton was a tale of two halves that didn’t fall in Seton Hall’s favor. After an electric first half that saw Myles Cale shoot 4-for-5 from three-point range and Bryce Aiken put up 12 points, the Pirates failed to maintain their astute defensive efforts in the closing moments of the second half. Seton Hall well and truly outplayed Creighton up until the under-12 mark where their...

Seton Hall downs Butler for third consecutive Big East win

The Pirates came into Sunday’s faceoff with Butler fresh off a dominant win against Marquette two days before.

The Pirates went down 4-3 very quickly, but the one-point disadvantage did not last and was the only lead they did not own in...

Seton Hall came into Saturday’s game off the back of a 36-point loss to No. 7 Creighton on Wednesday night while DePaul were just three games into their season due to previous positive COVID-19 tests within the team. It was always going to be an especially difficult game for both teams physically and mentally, but the Pirates showed true grit to fend off a late second half comeback by the Blue Demons to leave the Wintrust Arena with a...

Park-Lane’s performance not enough to see out victory for Seton Hall over Villanova

Seton Hall crumble in historic 36-point loss to No. 7 Creighton

Away games in Omaha, Neb. have always been difficult tests for Seton Hall to overcome, and tonight’s loss to No. 7 Creighton was no different. Slow starts to both halves prevented the Pirates form establishing a foothold in the game, and an uncharacteristic number of turnovers throughout the night saw the team take one step forward and two steps back in their attempts to claw their way back into the game. Wednesday night’s 89-53 loss...

Meanwhile, the Pirates were coming off one of their best all-around team games in years when they beat Xavier last Wednesday. The Pirates looked like a...

Cale ripens in career-performance in win over Georgetown

After showing shades of his individual capabilities on the floor in the first half of Sunday night’s loss to Providence, Myles Cale blew up for a career-high 30 points against the Georgetown Hoyas. The senior guard took control of Seton Hall’s offense during an off-night for Sandro Mamukelashvili.
