Kevin Willard ready to take on high expectations in 2019

Compared to 2018-19, things are slightly different for Kevin Willard and his squad ahead of the new season.

Seton Hall no longer has underdog status to fall back on

It took nearly a decade, but Kevin Willard finally has the Seton Hall men’s basketball program where he wants it after taking over as coach in 2010. Tasked with rebuilding a program in shambles, the first couple years of the Willard era featured the occasional positive sprinkled in with mostly negatives. Willard took the Pirates to the NIT in his second year, but three consecutive dismal seasons followed. At the end of the 2014-15...

Fast start from newcomers boosts outlook for women’s swimming season

The Seton Hall swimming and diving team currently sits at 4-1, with its only loss this season to in-state rival Rutgers. One catalyst to the fortuitous start is the amazing performances of its freshmen, who have helped the team win many races. Two freshmen, Madeline Bachand and Sierra Cripps, have a combined 13 top-three finishes thus far. At the Rutgers Pre-Season Tune-Up, the former finished second in the 500-yard Freestyle with a...

Samuels set to lead women’s basketball

As the season approaches, so does the beginning of Shadeen Samuels’ farewell tour, as it is a year surrounded by excitement thanks to a Pirate squad being led by the projected best player in the conference. Samuels is the most lethal player on any Big East court for a reason.
