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...

Seniors lead the way as Seton Hall earn hard-fought first away win over UConn in 24 years

After nearly eight years without a Big East game between Seton Hall and the University of Connecticut, Saturday’s meeting between the two sides did not disappoint. The Pirates’ last meeting with the Huskies came on Feb. 10, 2013 with UConn winning 78-67 at the Prudential Center. Seton Hall’s last win over them came on Jan. 3, 2012, but there had not been a Seton Hall win over UConn in Connecticut since Mar. 1, 1997. On Saturday,...

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...

Seton Hall drops third consecutive game with home loss to No. 3 Villanova

After what will likely be the toughest three-game stretch of the Seton Hall men’s basketball team’s season, the Pirates walk away without a win to their name. An away loss to No. 3 Villanova and a home loss to No. 17 Creighton was capped off by another home loss in the reverse fixture to Villanova over an 11-day stretch of games. Both sides shot about 41% from the field in the first half, but Villanova started the game shooting a...

Seton Hall collapse in second half as No. 17 Creighton pull off comeback win

The story of Wednesday night’s loss to No. 17 Creighton was a tale of two halves that didn’t fall in Seton Hall’s favor. After an electric first half that saw Myles Cale shoot 4-for-5 from three-point range and Bryce Aiken put up 12 points, the Pirates failed to maintain their astute defensive efforts in the closing moments of the second half. Seton Hall well and truly outplayed Creighton up until the under-12 mark where their...

Seton Hall just fall short in close loss to No. 3 Villanova

The last two times the Seton Hall men’s basketball faced a Villanova team ranked third in country, they were victorious both times. With the Wildcats coming off a month-long stretch without a single game, it looked as though the streak may stretch to three games. Tuesday night’s game saw the Pirates start strongly with Jared Rhoden and Sandro Mamukelashvili combining for 28 points in the first half. The Pirates shot...

Seton Hall brush off midweek loss with gritty away win over DePaul

Seton Hall came into Saturday’s game off the back of a 36-point loss to No. 7 Creighton on Wednesday night while DePaul were just three games into their season due to previous positive COVID-19 tests within the team. It was always going to be an especially difficult game for both teams physically and mentally, but the Pirates showed true grit to fend off a late second half comeback by the Blue Demons to leave the Wintrust Arena with a...

Seton Hall crumble in historic 36-point loss to No. 7 Creighton

Away games in Omaha, Neb. have always been difficult tests for Seton Hall to overcome, and tonight’s loss to No. 7 Creighton was no different. Slow starts to both halves prevented the Pirates form establishing a foothold in the game, and an uncharacteristic number of turnovers throughout the night saw the team take one step forward and two steps back in their attempts to claw their way back into the game. Wednesday night’s 89-53 loss...
