Healy entrenched as a leader for Seton Hall

For the third consecutive year Kaity Healy will be the captain of the Seton Hall women’s basketball team. Healy dubbed the accolade an “extreme honor” and is up for the challenge. Head coach Anthony Bozzella also spoke highly of Healy’s character and outgoing personality, which he said made her deserving of the captaincy yet again. “She has handled all the things a captain needs to do, not just ‘Let’s all get huddled up together’ or...

Youth brings hope for women’s soccer despite overturn

After a lackluster campaign for the Seton Hall women’s soccer program, changes were finally made. Head coach Rick Stainton parted ways with the Pirates without registering a winning season in his five years of strolling the sidelines in South Orange. The Pirates ended the 2018 season at 2-12-4, including 0-9-0 in conference play, and their goal differential of -24 is a large reason why. Both the offense and the defense struggled...

Steady bench production needed for Seton Hall to contend

The Seton Hall men’s basketball team enter the 2018-19 regular season with many questions that need to be answered and many new faces entering the fold.

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. – On Tuesday night, Seton Hall women’s basketball head coach Tony Bozzella was one of 1,655 in Walsh Gymnasium for the men’s basketball team’s 89-49 win over Wagner; an inconspicuous spectator on the stage behind the banner side-basket, only a few hours after his own team beat Wagner, 95-40.

Fresh faces and a new offense will benefit Seton Hall

The word of the summer for Seton Hall basketball was transition. The team qualified for its third straight NCAA Tournament last season, led by the likes of Khadeen Carrington, Angel Delgado and Desi Rodriguez.

Despite finding success in 2017-18, the...
