Defensive dominance propels Seton Hall to signature win over No. 7 Maryland

Remember the lifeless and offensively incompetent Seton Hall team that took the floor against Rutgers last weekend? That version of the Pirates was nowhere to be found on Thursday night. Seton Hall locked in defensively for 40 minutes and garnered just enough offense to survive and secure itself a much-needed 52-48 signature win over No. 7 Maryland in its return to the Prudential Center. After getting shredded by a Rutgers squad known...

This year, the Scarlet Knights picked up right where they left off, starting the game on a 19-3 run en route to a 68-48 blowout of the Pirates. On top of the bruise to Seton Hall’s ego, the team also lost Preseason All-American Myles Powell for the entire second half due to being evaluated for a head injury. In a raucous...

Seton Hall loses Sandro Mamukelashvili in ugly loss to Iowa State

There’s only one word that can sum up Seton Hall’s 76-66 loss to Iowa State on Sunday night. Ugly. The Pirates struggled to get going offensively throughout the night, shooting a mere 36% from the field and 26% from three against an Iowa State defense that gave up 84 points to Seton Hall last weekend in the Bahamas. Myles Powell finished with 19 points on 7-20 shooting before fouling out late in the second half, while...

Seton Hall closes out Battle 4 Atlantis with key win over Iowa State

Kevin Willard’s message to his team was clear heading into its matchup with Iowa State on Friday night – No more excuses.

The win puts the Pirates at 6-2 on the year and allows them to leave the...

Seton Hall bounces back with win over Southern Miss in Battle 4 Atlantis

Less than 24 hours after an excruciating loss to Oregon, Seton Hall was back to its old ways against Southern Miss in the Battle 4 Atlantis. Given what transpired on Wednesday, the Pirates were faced with a potential trap game against an underwhelming Southern Miss squad. Instead of turning in a no-show performance after a rough night, Seton Hall got the job done despite Myles Powell not having his best game and downed the Golden...

Seton Hall’s fatal flaw put on full display in collapse against Oregon

Talk about a punch to the gut. Up 19 in the second half and 10 with six minutes left to play, Seton Hall looked to be in prime position to defeat No. 11 Oregon and advance to take on No. 8 Gonzaga in the second round of the Battle 4 Atlantis. Instead of securing a Top 15 win and taking a crack at earning a resume-boosting win over Gonzaga, the Pirates completely collapsed and allowed Oregon to win a game in which it was essentially up...

Myles Powell, Alexis Lewis receive weekly honors

The Seton Hall men’s and women’s have been off to a hot start for the 2019-20 season. Myles Powell is naturally leading the way on the men’s side. On the women’s side, it is not as clear. After Shadeen Samuels went down with an injury against Princeton, the rest of the team needed to step up and did. Most notably, Desiree Elmore and Alexis Lewis picked up the pace. Due to her efforts, Lewis found herself named to the Big East Weekly...

Early-season stats look promising for women’s basketball team

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team is off to a hot start this year, holding Virginia Commonwealth University to just 33 points and narrowly losing by two points to Princeton at Walsh Gymnasium. Comparatively, and given that there is a small sample size to pull from at this point in the season, the Pirates are yet to reach the statistical levels they achieved last year. However, their current marks are nearly hitting the same...

Mix of veteran and transfer scoring has Pirates off to hot start

The burden of high expectation weighs heavy on both Seton Hall’s men’s and women’s teams this year with both teams being picked to finish at the top or near the top of the Big East. The women’s team, with its two most productive scorers returning in Shadeen Samuels and Desiree Elmore, and the addition of transfers and freshmen, was picked third in the Big East preseason coaches’ poll.
