Shane McCarthy ready to roll for senior season

Nearly eight months after being selected by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2017 MLB Draft, Shane McCarthy is back at Seton Hall for his senior season, and the Pirates are happy to have him pitching at Owen T. Carroll Field for one more season. The right-hander will serve as the anchor of the Pirates’ pitching staff, but he knows his role as a veteran teammate is just as vital. “As a senior now, I’m the leader,” McCarthy said. “I have...

Seton Hall freshmen not living up to preseason expectations

In October 2017, Khadeen Carrington, Desi Rodriguez and Angel Delgado gathered at Madison Square Garden for their last Big East Media Day session. With the three upperclassmen in the building, the expectation was that the conversation would be about the three 1,000-point scorers. Instead, Carrington, Rodriguez and Delgado spent most of the afternoon praising freshmen Myles Cale, Sandro Mamukelashvili and Jordan Walker. Even Seton Hall...

New U.S. Soccer President Cordeiro has to transform youth development

In October 2017, U.S. Soccer reached a low point that many Americans did not think they would ever see: the U.S. men’s national team failed to qualify for the World Cup. This failure came at a time where viewership and popularity of soccer was growing immensely in the U.S., and America was showcasing the teenage sensation Christian Pulisic as a world-class footballer. In the wake of the disappointment, USSF president Sunil Gulati...

The Big East, built on basketball, is as strong as ever

When Dave Gavitt, the Big East Conference founding commissioner, died in September 2011, the conference he had constructed so masterfully was perceived to poetically be saying goodbye with him. With the departure of three pioneer members of the conference in Syracuse, Connecticut, and Pittsburgh, no longer would Orange, Huskies or Panthers run rampant through the streets of New York City in the middle of every March. The truth is the...

Resilient Seton Hall cannot dig out of second-half hole

The Seton Hall women’s basketball team lost to Villanova on Sunday afternoon, 59-53, at the Jake Nevin Field House in Villanova, Pa. In a game where the Pirates trailed by as much as 18, a late run fueled in part by Selena Philoxy helped cut the Villanova deficit to six, but ultimately, Seton Hall could not cap off the comeback. JaQuan Jackson had 4 points and 4 rebounds in the first quarter, but did not get much help as both teams...

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.
