Despite end result, Seton Hall’s Big East Tournament run a noteworthy achievement

This year’s Seton Hall team was never supposed to sniff Big East Championship Saturday at Madison Square Garden. After losing four seniors and three 1,000-point scorers, the Pirates were better suited as a bottom-third team in the conference with designs on an NIT appearance. At best, this team could maybe avoid the dreaded first day of the Big East Tournament and maybe scrap for a win against another middle of the pack team. At least...

Pirates on the bubble as NCAA Tournament looms

There are three certainties about the month of March, and the first two involve the color green – the return of verdant leaves as spring begins and the proliferation of green-clad revelers celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. The third certainty is the madness caused by the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Currently, Seton Hall fans are in a frenzy over whether the Pirates will be invited to the “Big Dance” or on the outside looking in. In...

Combine performances are overvalued in evaluations

The NFL combine is the most overrated, nitpicked and overemphasized event in all of sports. The idea of scouting a player’s skill set heavily dependent on 40-yard-dashes and shuttle runs is bewildering. Game film speaks for itself on how a player performs, not how many inches their vertical jump is. Year after year, teams fall in love with the “workout warriors” and the players who are the epitome of an elite athlete at the combine....

Players should not be expected to take hometown discounts

In today’s sports universe, there should be no such thing as a “hometown discount.” This past week, a report by Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram stated that ex-Seahawks safety Earl Thomas would not give his hometown Dallas Cowboys a break when it came to money. The 29-year-old, according to Hill, Jr. is attempting to supersede Eric Berry as the highest-paid safety in the league. Thomas’ situation is the perfect...

Arteaga driving softball’s offense with simplicity

Through 13 games to start the softball season, a large part of the team’s offense is running through Hailey Arteaga. The junior from Upland, Calif. is having a torrid opening to the campaign. To start the season, Arteaga has a .447 average through 38 at-bats, which equates to 17 hits. For players on the team with 15 at bats or more, the next best is Jaden Tate, who is hitting .296 in 27 plate appearances. Arteaga also leads the team...

Seton Hall’s tournament chances directly affect potential enrollment

After Seton Hall’s 78-70 loss to St. John’s on Saturday at Madison Square Garden, the Pirates’ chances of securing an NCAA Tournament berth for the fourth consecutive season are looking slim.

Too little, too late as Pirates’ comeback attempt falls short

The Seton Hall’s women’s basketball team reduced a 21-point deficit to five on Sunday against Villanova but ultimately could not complete the comeback, losing 73-68. After heavily controlling the first meeting between the two sides, the Pirates found themselves playing catchup for most of the game the second time around. In the first half, Seton Hall’s small ball lineup was not able to gain the edge, as Villanova continued to look...
