Defensive lapses at Georgetown end Pirates’ four-game winning streak

Seton Hall’s defensive woes from the perimeter have been a constant issue for the team this season, and they proved detrimental in Saturday night’s loss to Georgetown. The Hoyas shot 10-for-16 from three-point range and outshot the Pirates from the field 50% to 43.3% to put a dent in Seton Hall’s NCAA Tournament hopes. Despite coming into the game on a four-game winning streak, the Pirates rarely looked completely in...

Mamukelashvili scores 1,000th point, leads Pirates to win over DePaul

After a tough run of games that saw the Seton Hall men’s basketball team go winless in four games against No. 10 Villanova and No. 14 Creighton, the Pirates came into Wednesday’s home game against DePaul on a three-game winning streak. Despite the Blue Demons coming into Wednesday’s game winless in four and without their two top scorers in Javon Freeman-Liberty and Charlie Moore, it was important for the Pirates not to fall prey to a...

Seton Hall grind out important win over Marquette for third win on the spin

Off the back of a two-game away stint last week, Seton Hall men’s basketball returned to the Prudential Center for their second game of the season against Marquette. With just about month left for teams to make their cases for a spot in the NCAA Tournament, the Pirates came into this one knowing they had to grab the win. I wasn’t the prettiest performance of the season from either team – combining for 29 fouls and 29 turnovers – but a...

Pirates break winless run with win over Providence

The Friars looked shaky in possession to start the game, giving up two turnovers that would lead to fast-break points from Myles Cale and Shavar Reynolds. At 7-6, neither looked like they were going to have a particular good shooting night, but a layup from David Duke broke the three-minute scoring drought and set Providence up for a run. After a tight opening five minute between the two sides, Providence started finding their stride...
