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...

Abby Wingo and her traveling fan group

The atmosphere of youth sports games is dictated by father-coaches yelling and stereotypical soccer moms devoting their time to be the team mascot. Unfortunately, as the kids grow older and they begin to filter out by who has the potential to play in college and who does not, these age- old tropes retire from...

Veteran leadership and its success in the Big East

In a college basketball landscape that features prolific one-and-done freshman stars year in and year out, the Big East continues to thrive on player development and veteran success.

He is the only player to truly be one- and-done in the Big East since the...

By the number: Myles Cale’s production has regressed

Myles Cale was relegated to riding the pine to start the game on Feb. 5 against Georgetown. For the 6-foot-6 junior, it was the first time that he was not on the floor for the opening tip for Seton Hall since his freshman year – the Round of 32 loss to Kansas that  ended the Pirates’ hopeful March run. Prior to that game, Cale had started the last five to end that season, including in a win over North Carolina State to propel the...

Conference realignment 10 years later: the reshaping of college basketball

When  it  comes  to  college hoops,  regional rivalries have consistently dominated the minds of local fans and created.

Women’s golf has lofty goals for spring season

The  women’s   golf  team  and coach Natalie Desjardins enter the spring with high expectations.

Desjardins came to Seton Hall in 2017 from LIU Brooklyn, arriving in South Orange a year after three of her seniors did. Desjardins’ defection from LIU spurred Ronchel- Salas to...
