Villanova spoils Seton Hall’s senior night celebration

It’s fitting that the program that has dealt Seton Hall its fair share of heartbreak over the years was the one to come into the Prudential Center and put a damper on Myles Powell, Quincy McKnight, Romaro Gill and Asiah Avent’s senior night celebration. Facing a season sweep at the hands of Pirates in front of a record-setting Prudential Center crowd, Villanova dialed in and delivered an A-plus performance en route to a 79-77 victory...

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...

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...

Mamukelashvili Magic: Seton Hall snaps two-game losing streak at the buzzer

If you ask the basketball gods how they would have ended the 74-72 nail-biting victory for Seton Hall over Butler on Wednesday night, it happened exactly like it they would have liked. Sandro Mamukelashvili found a way to catch and toss in a lob from Quincy McKnight with only 0.6 seconds left to win it for the Pirates on Cancer Night at the Prudential Center with his father, a cancer survivor, was in attendance for the first time...

Late Game Heroics Not Enough as No. 10 Seton Hall upset at Providence

No. 10 Seton Hall, once down by as many as 25, stormed back on the road at Providence but saw time run out as the Friars defeated the Pirates 74-68 behind a career-night from Alpha Diallo. The Pirates entered this game 6-0 on the road in the Big East and held opponents to 39 percent field goal shooting in such games.

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. In New Jersey, Rutgers and Seton Hall sit just 30 miles from each other and have left New Jersey split. The schools grew a disdain for each other during their 23 years together in  the  Big East,  but  conference realignment has stripped the  rivalry of  the  in-conference stakes that the matchups once included....

Seton Hall falters against No. 23 Creighton as Myles Powell goes ice cold

As Myles Powell launched up a three with 1.4 seconds left and saw it fall, the usually exuberant superstar looked defeated instead in a clear indication of the effort his team put forth against a steady Creighton team on Wednesday night. Powell finished at an abysmal 3-for-16 overall from the field and 1-for-11 from beyond the arc as Seton Hall fell, 87-82, for the second straight time at the Prudential Center. Renee Nunez/Staff...
