Those honored included Tara Inman, Kat Egan and...

Why sticking to sports is nonsense

In an era where sports and politics are becoming increasingly intertwined, many have called out sports writers and broadcasters for expressing their opinions of the current state of American politics, telling them to “stick to sports.” However, the idea that anyone in the sports media should strictly “stick to sports” is wrong.

MLB still struggling in effort to diversify

In Nov. 2016, Commissioner Rob Manfred and MLB parted ways with Korn Ferry, an executive search firm brought in by the league last year to support and promote the hiring of minorities to front office positions.

Deep women’s basketball freshmen class hungry for success

After two years of a heavily-experienced roster that delivered back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances, this year’s Seton Hall women’s basketball roster faces a new challenge, as it is loaded with inexperience. While last year the Pirates had five seniors on their roster, they will only have two this year. The bulk of the roster is comprised of the eight-player freshman class. Even the captains are young, as LaTecia Smith is a...
