Delgado’s performance still lacking recognition

While Seton Hall big man Angel Delgado ranks high statistically throughout the nation, he is not being considered one of the nation’s best centers in award recognition. Earlier this month, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced its 10 finalists for the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar award, which recognizes the best center in college basketball. The nation’s top rebounder and second-best double-double man, Delgado, was not one of...

Opinion: Students must fight fake news with knowledge

On Sept. 30, a 23-year-old graduate of Davidson College named Cameron Harris published a story online about an electrical worker who found boxes of ballots pre-marked for Hillary Clinton. The story was false. Harris fed into readers’ beliefs that the election was going to be rigged. By deliberately trying to mislead, his article holds to be one of many that constitute fake news, a trend that has increased as of late. President Donald...

New NBA jersey patches are a bad move

It’s always about the money, but the NBA’s latest move has gone too far. On April 15, 2016, the NBA Board of Governors approved jersey sponsorships, in which a 2.5 inch by 2.5 inch sponsorship patch will appear on the front left of game jerseys. This is going to take effect in the 2017-18 season, when Nike takes over for Adidas as the league’s uniform and apparel provider. It’s not a great look. While the patch is designed to be small...

Blocks down as turnovers continue to rise for Seton Hall

Defense wins championships, but Seton Hall’s defense isn’t the same as last year’s Big East Championship team. The team has taken a dip in one key area: blocks. Entering Wednesday’s game with Xavier holding a 13-7 record, Seton Hall ranks last in the Big East in both blocked shots per game (2.6) and total rejections (51). Twenty games into last season, with a 14-6 record, SHU averaged 4.3 blocks per game with 86 total, both ranking...

Desi Rodriguez heating up in Big East play

Desi Rodriguez is using Big East play to get into his shooting groove. After averaging 14.3 points per game in non-conference play this season, the junior forward has jumped to an average of 21.0 points per game in Big East action. Once conference play hit, Rodriguez became the familiar scoring weapon that Seton Hall fans love, a threat from beyond the arc and a harmer of the hoop. After a slow start from three this season, Rodriguez...

Social media posts holding players accountable for actions

Some of the biggest stories of this season’s NFL playoffs have branched from athletes’ posts on social media. When athletes post the wrong thing, the public will critique it to no end. The first example of this came when Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. posted a picture on social media of him on Justin Bieber’s yacht in Miami. He was accompanied by teammate Victor Cruz, among others. Once the picture was posted, the public tore...

Rodriguez dominates first half in rout of DePaul

“We were all on the bench screaming, ‘Get Desi the ball!'” Nothing like a near-career-high 25 points, including five three-pointers, to lead your team to a 87-56 victory over DePaul on a snowy Saturday afternoon. “I was feeling it,” Desi Rodriguez said. “I saw the first two go in, when I got a little dunk on the break, so everything started to come together. It was a bit of a sluggish day, so I had...
