Softball’s 2019 shortcomings are driving force to 2020 motivation

Seton Hall softball’s 2019 shortcomings are driving force to 2020 motivation. Almost every student has felt the heartbreak of finishing a course with an 89 or missing out on an A by a tenth of a percentage point. That same heartbreak was multiplied tenfold for the Seton Hall softball team last year when they missed out on a place in the Big East tournament by .003. For the exiting seniors, it was a sour note to end their college...

Kobe Bryant leaves incredible legacies on and off the court

My father can still recall it despite the passage of over 50 years. He was 9-years-old and walking home from school when a woman informed him that President Kennedy had died. My mother still vividly remembers what she was doing when she heard John Lennon was assassinated. Moments like Kennedy and Lennon’s untimely deaths remain indelible in the minds of nearly everyone who was alive at the time. While I listened to my parents’...

I can’t believe we’re still talking about this

Welcome back, Pirates! Hope you all had both a restful and exciting winter break. The editors at The Setonian sure did, until the last week, when an article had to be written about a student posting a video to her personal Instagram account that ended with the use of a racial slur against Asian people. If you thought we were leaving racism in 2019 folks, looks like we aren’t. Photo via Wikimedia Commons We’re not complaining about...

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...

Supporting cast powers Seton Hall to romp over Georgetown

Romaro Gill’s career night powered Seton Hall to a 78-62 drubbing of Georgetown to top the Big East standings on a feisty Friday night at the Rock. Myles Powell, the conference’s second-leading scorer at 21.7 points per game, started 0-for-4 and found himself on the bench for much of the first half. “He’s not back to where he’ll be in a couple weeks,” Kevin Willard said postgame, but the supporting cast carried the load in front of a...

Myles Powell leads Seton Hall’s comeback over DePaul

Myles Powell’s return sparked Seton Hall to come from behind and take down a DePaul team exceeding expectations in Chicago, 74-66. Powell led all scorers with 27 points and snagged five steals in his first game back from a concussion. Last time Seton Hall played on the road, a hostile Rutgers side took advantage of the Pirates’ slow start to build a mammoth lead. Against DePaul, Seton Hall made just one of its first seven shots as the...

Pirates relinquish Hardwood Classic Trophy in embarrassing blowout

Two years ago, Rutgers ended the 2017 Garden State Hardwood Classic on a 17-2 run to stun Seton Hall with a loss. 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...
