The Seton Hall Pirates are the athletic teams representing Seton Hall University. They compete as a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I level (non-football sub-level), primarily competing in the Big East Conference for all sports since the 1979-80 season.[2][3][4] Men's sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer and swimming & diving; while women's sports include basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis and volleyball. Seton Hall canceled football (which was played in Division III) in 1982.

On December 15, 2012, Seton Hall and the other seven Catholic, non-FBS schools announced that they were departing the Big East for a new conference.[5]

The school's athletic director is Patrick Lyons.[6] The program's mascot is The Pirate[7] and colors are blue, gray, and white.[8]

Men's

Basketball

The university first sponsored men's basketball in 1903.[9] The program won the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) in 1953[10] and lost in the finals of the 1989 NCAA Tournament to Michigan, 80–79 in overtime.[11]

Women's

Basketball

Volleyball

In 2014, the Pirates made their first trip to the NCAA Volleyball Tournament and finished as runners up in the BIG EAST Conference.[12]

Defunct

Football

The school sponsored football from 1882-1932 and 1973-1982. The sport's second stint at the school came in Division III. The sport was dropped in 1982 due to "the team's past losing season, inadequate facilities, decreased attendance and a general lack of support for the program."[13]
