Seton Hall freshmen finding their footing at the right time

Sometimes, all it takes for a young player to get comfortable is some playing time. Through Seton Hall’s first 25 games, the freshmen trio of Myles Cale, Sandro Mamukelashvili and Jordan Walker were an afterthought for the most part, relegated to small roles in which all three players saw sporadic playing time. When it came time to call upon them in conference play, not a single member of Kevin Willard’s 2017 recruiting class looked...

Seton Hall seniors take adversity in stride

A stretch like the one Seton Hall endured over the last two weeks showed signs of a broken team, but it is nowhere Seton Hall’s senior class has not been before. Ever since the core four of Khadeen Carrington, Desi Rodriguez, Ismael Sanogo and Angel Delgado set foot on campus, adversity has become a common theme. As freshmen, they were part of a team that went from  top-25 to turmoil. As sophomores, embarrassing early season losses to...

Rejuvenated Seton Hall hangs on to defeat DePaul behind Rodriguez’s career-high

Over the past few weeks, Seton Hall has been missing an element of its game that it thrived on in the beginning of the season – energetic play. In the form of diving for loose balls, deflecting passes and slapping the floor, a rejuvenated Seton Hall team came out on Sunday afternoon and defeated DePaul by a final score of 82-77 to end a four-game losing streak. The victory did not come easily, as DePaul hung around until the end....

Pirates plunge to fourth straight loss as freshmen break through

Another slow start from Seton Hall and hot shooting from Trevon Bluiett led the Pirates to drop their fourth straight game to No. 4 Xavier on Wednesday night by a score of 102-90. The loss brings Seton Hall to a 17-9 record on the season and 6-7 in Big East play, good for sixth in the conference. The Pirates followed a recent trend in which the team’s first-half shooting percentage has continued to plummet. Against Xavier, the Hall...

Unranked and unraveling

Seton Hall’s fall from grace has been a tumble, as the team has slid from the upper half of the AP Top-25 to sixth in the Big East. The Pirates are not living up to expectations of a Preseason Coaches’ Poll that chose them to finish second in the conference, ahead of a No. 4 Xavier that is on its way to a possible No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. As much as fans want to blame it on free throw shooting, that excuse fails to tell the...

Seton Hall freshmen not living up to preseason expectations

In October 2017, Khadeen Carrington, Desi Rodriguez and Angel Delgado gathered at Madison Square Garden for their last Big East Media Day session. With the three upperclassmen in the building, the expectation was that the conversation would be about the three 1,000-point scorers. Instead, Carrington, Rodriguez and Delgado spent most of the afternoon praising freshmen Myles Cale, Sandro Mamukelashvili and Jordan Walker. Even Seton Hall...

Pirates drop third in a row in upset to Georgetown

A matchup with ninth-place Georgetown on Saturday provided Seton Hall an opportunity to bounce back after losing to Marquette at home Wednesday, but the right answers still elude the Pirates. Seton Hall’s first-half struggles proved to be too much to overcome in the team’s 83-80 loss at Georgetown, the team’s fifth loss in its last seven games. The Pirates’ were slow out of the gate, falling behind 11-8 at the...

A confident Carrington holds invaluable weight for Seton Hall

Seton Hall is full of players that can change a game. Angel Delgado can dominate a team inside. Myles Powell can shoot unconsciously from three. Desi Rodriguez can take advantage of any matchup. The missing link has been Khadeen Carrington, who has been quiet offensively this season compared to numbers he has put up in the past. Heading into the Jan. 31 matchup against Providence, the senior had made just one three-pointer in his last...

No. 1 Wildcats wear down Pirates behind hot-shooting Spellman

The Seton Hall men’s basketball team held on with the No. 1 team in the nation for two thirds of the game on Sunday afternoon in the Wells Fargo Center, but lost its point guard and edge momentarily and did not recover, falling to the Villanova Wildcats by a score of 92-76. Fans decked in Pirate blue, imitating the glory day uniforms worn by the Pirates, packed the five rows behind the Seton Hall bench in an arena that saw fans dress...
