Myles Powell returns to form, Seton Hall hangs on for win over Georgetown

After falling to a desperate Xavier team to suffer its first Big East loss of the season last weekend, Seton Hall came out firing on all cylinders and held on at the end to secure a 78-71 win over Georgetown. Undoubtedly, Kevin Willard has to be thrilled with his team’s electric start in the nation’s capital. For a team notoriously slow out of the gate, the Pirates started the game on a 16-0 run behind four hits from beyond the arc –...

Quincy McKnight suffers leg injury in loss to Xavier

Seton Hall’s loss to Xavier halted its 10-game winning streak and perfect start to Big East play, but the Pirates’ biggest loss of the day came just before the under-four timeout. Quincy McKnight’s left knee severely buckled on a drive to the rim and was unable to put any sort of pressure on it as he was helped off the floor and taken back to the locker room for further evaluation. Here is a replay of Quincy McKnight’s injury....

Big East Preseason Player of the Year Shadeen Samuels, Alexis Lewis and Barbara Johnson have implemented themselves as key players for the program throughout the year and continue to do so as the team aspires to make a postseason push.

Parity is this year’s star of college basketball

It seems that in any given year, you can’t watch or discuss college basketball without hearing about that team or that player. Remember Zion Williamson’s tenure at Duke and Trae Young’s Oklahoma? How about the Kentucky squad that won 38 consecutive games in 2014-15 before stumbling in the Final Four? Their greatness defined the narrative of a sport’s entire season, on and off the hardwood. Those guys dominated their opponents night in...

Seton Hall fights off DePaul to extend winning streak to 10

If you’re Seton Hall, it’s probably best to wipe most of the Wednesday night affair with DePaul out of your memories forever. Despite winning 64-57, getting Sandro Mamukelashvili back for the first time since Dec. 8, having Kevin Willard pass PJ Carlesimo for the most Big East wins in program history and Myles Powell becoming the fourth-highest scoring player in Seton Hall history, the game was about as ugly as you can get. With four...

How a Star was Born: Myles Powell’s path to glory fueled by work ethic and big heart

One conversation with Myles Powell is all it takes to realize he is different than other star players in college basketball. Despite the numerous accolades to his name and the fame that has come along with being a 2019 preseason All-American and the face of Seton Hall basketball, Powell prefers not to talk too much about himself. Even after games where he single-handedly wills Seton Hall to victory, Powell steers the conversation...

Success from beyond the arc fuels Pirates’ winning streak

Aging men in barber shops talk about a time when basketball was played in the paint. Offenses revolved around the center and the two hand set shot and the “skyhook” were king. The three-point shot did not exist yet and taking a long-range shot was unheard of. These old tales seem crazy to young basketball fans in 2020. Three-pointers are a crucial element of the modern game, and players like Steph Curry, Kyle Korver and Ray Allen have...

Defense and individual improvements aiding women’s basketball

Team orientated play has been the source of success for the Pirates, as they have marched out to a 12-7 record with the season entering its last legs. Despite the belief that Big East Preseason Player of the Year Shadeen Samuels would carry the program to its victories for the 2019-20 campaign, the diverse team effort has produced the results the Pirates have hoped for. Five players on the unit are averaging at least ten points for...

Seton Hall outlasts Providence to remain perfect in Big East play

On the night where Myles Powell was honored for being the fifth player in Seton Hall history to hit 2,000 career points, head coach Kevin Willard made a little history of his own by tying PJ Carlesimo for all-time Big East wins at 78. Willard has been around long enough, from 2010 until present day, to know the drill. In usual coy fashion, he brushed off the record in favor of the fact that Carlesimo coached in an era with 16 Big East...

Seton Hall overcomes turnover bug to continue record Big East start against St. John’s

Another day, another come from behind victory for Seton Hall. Three days after turning in its cleanest performance of the season against Butler, it looked like the turnover bug was going to get the best of Seton Hall against St. John’s at Madison Square Garden. The Pirates turned the ball over 15 times in the first half and trailed 43-30 at halftime. In typical Seton Hall fashion, it refused to go away without a fight. The Pirates put...
