Seton Hall loses Sandro Mamukelashvili in ugly loss to Iowa State

There’s only one word that can sum up Seton Hall’s 76-66 loss to Iowa State on Sunday night. Ugly. The Pirates struggled to get going offensively throughout the night, shooting a mere 36% from the field and 26% from three against an Iowa State defense that gave up 84 points to Seton Hall last weekend in the Bahamas. Myles Powell finished with 19 points on 7-20 shooting before fouling out late in the second half, while...

Cross Country program continues to steer in the right direction

Seton Hall’s men’s and Women’s cross country teams have a lot to hope for, regardless of how results played out at the Big East Championships. On the women’s side, they finished last and had no runner in the top-50 times. Before the meet, Seton Hall had at least multiple top-25 finishers in every event this season. At the beginning of the season, head coach John Moon expected last year’s freshman sensation, Emma Newgarden, to have a...

Baseball will not always reign supreme in the race for wages

Whether it’s hitting fade-away game-winners to win a playoff series or winning back-to-back titles to end a 40-year drought of postseason success, basketball players are steadily gaining notoriety as they come closer to reaping the fruits of labor that baseball players have. No salary cap, more specifically a luxury tax for those that go over the cap, has given baseball leeway to negotiate however much money they want with a player....

Seton Hall’s fatal flaw put on full display in collapse against Oregon

Talk about a punch to the gut. Up 19 in the second half and 10 with six minutes left to play, Seton Hall looked to be in prime position to defeat No. 11 Oregon and advance to take on No. 8 Gonzaga in the second round of the Battle 4 Atlantis. Instead of securing a Top 15 win and taking a crack at earning a resume-boosting win over Gonzaga, the Pirates completely collapsed and allowed Oregon to win a game in which it was essentially up...

Myles Powell, Alexis Lewis receive weekly honors

The Seton Hall men’s and women’s have been off to a hot start for the 2019-20 season. Myles Powell is naturally leading the way on the men’s side. On the women’s side, it is not as clear. After Shadeen Samuels went down with an injury against Princeton, the rest of the team needed to step up and did. Most notably, Desiree Elmore and Alexis Lewis picked up the pace. Due to her efforts, Lewis found herself named to the Big East Weekly...
