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...

Pirates cold shooting and lack of rebounding leads to loss on the road

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team fell, 71-52, to the Georgetown Hoyas on Friday afternoon in its first of three road games. The loss is a sour note for the team, who managed to go 4-1 over its last five games entering Friday, including come-from-behind wins against Xavier on Feb. 2 and Butler on Feb. 4. The loss today drops the Pirates conference record to 7-7, with their fifth-place position still intact. Dionna White proved to...

Women’s basketball riding mid-season surge

Staying positive seemed like a difficult endeavor for the Seton Hall women’s basketball program less than a month ago. After a home loss to Villanova on Jan. 12, the Pirates were 2-5 in Big East play, not playing to their potential while the top half of conference standings were fading from view. Yet after the comeback win over Butler on Feb. 4, the Pirates are on the rise. After starting 2-5 in the Big East, they have since won five...

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...

Balance leading to potent offense for Pirates

When a team loses its leading scorer, devastating outcomes can come as a result. When it was announced that Donnaizha Fountain would no longer be with the Seton Hall women’s basketball program on Jan. 21, many expected the Pirates’ offense – which was already struggling at the time – to fall off a cliff. Over two weeks later, that has not been the case. Fountain accounted for more than 15.5 points per game. However, since the...

Upsets may be telling of NCAA shakeup

Feb. 3 marked a momentous occasion in the college basketball world that has not been seen in more than a decade – Duke, Kansas and Kentucky, three of the most iconic schools in the NCAA landscape, lost on the same day. To highlight the rarity of this event, its last occurrence was in March 2005. While these teams have remained powerhouses after that, there is reason to believe these blueblood names may be about to go through more...

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...

Pirates prevail as tables turn in final minutes

In a game of contrasting styles where the Pirates trailed late, the hardy Seton Hall women’s basketball team overcame Xavier on Friday night by a final score of 58-53. With momentum swinging throughout the evening, a boiling-over of emotions under the basket with 3:19 to play proved to be the act that swung the pendulum in the Pirates favor. Down 50-47, Inja Butina was fouled on a drive to the basket by Xavier’s A’riana Gray, who...
