The turnover total was the highest in a game for Seton Hall since 2016, and the Pirates continued to pile them up down the stretch. After a difficult and-one from Myles Powell to make the game 40-38, the Pirates coughed the ball up 10 times in the last 15 minutes of the game and caused the Friars to...

Seton Hall’s comeback falls short against Marquette

Following a turnover-filled first half, Seton Hall had a lot of work to do if it wanted to overcome a 10-point halftime deficit. The Pirates came out of the gate strong in the second half and nearly came all the way back, but it was not enough to down No. 21 Marquette in the end. Led by 26 points from star point guard Markus Howard, the Golden Eagles staved off a feisty Seton Hall comeback effort and held on for a 70-66 victory on...

McKnight and Pirates face unenviable challenge in Markus Howard

Quincy McKnight was one step ahead of the play. The Pirates’ Swiss Army knife of a guard knew where the pass was going before it left Joey Brunk’s hands. The Butler center made few mistakes on Wednesday night in a 20-point, 10-rebound performance, but he was read like a book in this crucial second half-opening sequence.  McKnight then switched from defensive stopper to offensive finisher, dribbling down the court and dunking...

How Seton Hall’s Shavar Reynolds came to shock St. John’s

Surrounded by reporters in the depths of the Prudential Center on Saturday night, the attention Seton Hall guard Shavar Reynolds was receiving did not seem possible only a few months ago. “Whoo,” a grinning Quincy McKnight screamed as he entered the room. “Superstar of the game right here,” said Myles Powell, rubbing Reynolds’ head. While Reynolds sat down and fielded questions like a seasoned veteran, the gravity of the moment had...

Seton Hall executed the play, but Mamukelashvili found himself in an uncomfortable position underneath the hoop. With the time ticking down, Mamukelashvili kicked it out to...

Seton Hall makes it three in a row with win over Sacred Heart

Fresh off two big wins and with Big 10 opponent Maryland looming on the schedule, it would’ve been easy for Seton Hall to overlook a Sacred Heart team that entered Wednesdaynight’s game without a KenPom Top 200 win to its name. MerindaLynne Gruszecki/ Digital Media Editor Instead, the Pirates locked in on both ends of the floor and rode the momentum of a hot-shooting first half and arguably the best performance of Sandro...

Powell’s second-half eruption wills Pirates’ overtime upset over Kentucky

The second half of the Citi Hoops Classic awakened a sleeping giant, as Myles Powell heroically drained a potential game-winning three, only to be followed by an absurd Kentucky half-court prayer that forced overtime in dramatic fashion. Powell erupted for 22 second-half points and unselfishly shared the ball that later found Myles Cale for the dagger shot, leading the Pirates to an 84-83 upset over No. 9 Kentucky. Students, alumni,...
