Defensive intensity key for women’s basketball

After winning three of its last four games, the Seton Hall women’s basketball team has found itself in the middle of the Big East standings. However, there is more work to do for the Pirates to find themselves in the top half when the dust settles. The pride of coach Tony Bozzella’s system is the intensity his team brings to the game. From the players on the floor to those on the bench, Seton Hall has utilized a full-team effort to be...

First-half run pulls Pirates past Providence

All season, the Pirates have won games despite the up-and-down performances of point guard Khadeen Carrington. Since he was learning a new role, fans and critics gave the senior time to adjust as he struggled early on. However, on Wednesday night, the narrative flipped and Carrington played a nearly perfect game, leading the Pirates to a 73-57 victory over the Providence Friars.  “I think he’s been playing great all year,” coach Kevin...

Delgado makes history as Pirates rediscover winning feeling

The Seton Hall Pirates snapped their two-game losing streak on Sunday afternoon with an 86-70 victory over the DePaul Blue Demons at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Ill. Myles Powell got started early and continued to make key plays throughout the contest. His three-pointer in transition with 7:32 remaining stopped DePaul from cutting the lead any smaller than eight, as the Blue Demons never held a lead throughout the game. Powell...

Resilient Pirates fall short in epic match in Omaha

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team lost in overtime on Sunday afternoon against the Creighton Bluejays, 81-64, at D.J. Sokol Arena in Omaha, Neb. Down by as many as 20 points, Seton Hall rallied from behind to not only make it a game but give themselves a chance to win in the dramatic final moments. A last-second jumper by Inja Butina did not find the bottom of the net, however, and Creighton pulled away in the extra period. The...

Seton Hall continue to improve its conference mark with road win

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team were victorious Friday afternoon in Providence’s Alumni Hall as they defeated the Providence Friars, 65-56. It was the same score-line that the Hall had beaten Providence by on Jan. 5 in Walsh Gymnasium, with the Hall having won four of their last five, beginning with that first Providence win. The game was low-scoring in the first quarter, and things stay close until an 8-0 run to close...

Pirates need more threes to return to form

Seton Hall has missed its three-point shot. The Pirates have lost three of their last four games, going from the No. 13 team in the country and atop the Big East leaderboard to falling out of the AP Top 25 Poll and tumbling to fifth place in the conference with a 4-3 Big East record. In that four-game stretch, the team’s offensive production has taken a dip, averaging 66.3 points per game compared to 81.4 prior. While field goal...

Bozzella gets 400th win: A milestone 26 years in the making

When the Seton Hall women’s basketball team defeated the Georgetown Hoyas on Jan. 14, the win was more significant than a boost in the Big East standings. In a game in which the Pirates never trailed, the 70-65 victory was the 400th career win for Pirates head coach Tony Bozzella. In the midst of his fifth season at The Hall, Bozzella has picked up 95 of his now 401 career wins. Coaching at his alma mater, Bozzella has posted a .629...

Inja Butina emerging as key Pirates playmaker

This season has been a roller coaster for Seton Hall’s women’s basketball team. After Taylor Brown went down with an injury and Donnaizha Fountain departed the program, Seton Hall quickly found itself without its two leading scorers and rebounders. With the team in the midst of a tough conference schedule, the Pirates needed someone to step up. So far, that person has been Inja Butina. The 5-foot-9 junior guard from Zagreb, Croatia...

Defensive development: Angel Delgado now a dual asset

Since breaking through as a freshman in the 2014-15 season, Angel Delgado has been a key cog in Kevin Willard’s offense for Seton Hall. The 6-foot-10 center possesses an imposing amount of physical strength in the post, which allows him to dominate almost any opponent down low and knock down a few quick buckets for the Pirates at any given time. So far in his collegiate career, Delgado has amassed 64 double-doubles. He also averages a...

Sanogo’s new-found jumper providing SHU with new element on offense

Throughout Ismael Sanogo’s first three seasons at Seton Hall, there were not many moments where he was spotting up to take a jump shot. A career 3.4-point per game scorer, almost all of Sanogo’s baskets came from close range. For Sanogo, a 10 to 15 foot jumper was out of the question. Now, seemingly out of nowhere, Sanogo has gone from an offensive liability to Seton Hall’s secret weapon. The first step in Sanogo’s progression as a...

Donnaizha Fountain parts ways with Seton Hall

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team announced last week that its leader this season in minutes, points and rebounds, Donnaizha Fountain, will no longer be a part of the program.
