Visit to September 11 Memorial & Museum inspires Seton Hall

A firetruck stands in the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, crushed and mangled. On it reads the words “Ladder Co. 3” for the group of firefighters that manned it. The entire Seton Hall men’s basketball team gathered around the crushed truck on Nov. 27 during a visit to the museum, listening to the words of the lone survivor whose crew rode on the truck on Sept. 11, 2001. “Ladder 3 had great comradery,” Bill Spade, a 1981...

Rodriguez looks like an All-Big East first team player

Out of Seton Hall’s three 1,000-point scorers in Khadeen Carrington, Angel Delgado and Desi Rodriguez, just Carrington and Delgado were named to the preseason all-Big East first team on Oct. 18. Xavier’s Trevon Bluiett, Creighton’s Marcus Foster and Butler’s Kelan Martin rounded out the first team roster. Rodriguez fell not to a second team selection, but to a preseason all-Big East honorable mention. Six games into the season,...

Seton Hall stunned by Rhode Island in NIT Tip-Off thriller

A chaotic final minute was what it came down to in Seton Hall’s 75-74 loss to Rhode Island in the NIT Season Tip-Off on Thanksgiving night.

Seton Hall held a one-point lead through the final minute after Rhode Island led for 32 minutes of the game. With eight lead...

Anonymous sources do not belong in the locker room

Unnamed sources can lead to scoops. A hidden identity allows one to give more information with the veil of anonymity. A hidden identity can also mark a source as a coward. On Nov. 8, ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported that two New York Giants expressed their dislike for current head coach Ben McAdoo. “McAdoo has lost this team. He’s going 80 percent on Saturdays (in practice) before we get on a plane, it’s wild,” the player said,...

A long time coming: Seton Hall seniors follow paths to shot at the Final Four

Ten years ago, seniors Khadeen Carrington and Desi Rodriguez met each other for the first time. As sixth graders, the two were in the early stages of forming their basketball careers, playing together on New Heights, an Amateur Athletic League (AAU) program. The New York natives hit it off right away when they met as 12-year-olds, but the gap between where they lived led to them being distanced for some time. “We were very close...

Coach’s ‘family’ bracelets bind team and bring identity

Fielding questions from media members at Big East Media Day on Oct. 18 at Madison Square Garden, senior guard Khadeen Carrington was wearing two blue rubber bracelets on his right wrist.

They were created and handed out to the team by associate head coach Shaheen Holloway. For Holloway, the...

Seton Hall and La Salle bring relief to Puerto Rico in exhibition contest

Seton Hall raised over $10,000 for Puerto Rico hurricane relief in a charity exhibition game against La Salle University Thursday night.

NCAA shows true colors with UNC decision

The NCAA had a chance to drop the hammer on a school that had been accused of a major academic scandal, but its own rulebook allowed the University of North Carolina to get off scot-free. By doing so, the NCAA let down student-athletes and universities across the country. The scandal, which was first uncovered six years ago, involved allegations of UNC offering sham classes in a “shadow curriculum.” Under this, students enrolled in...

Whitehead’s first year in his hometown as a Brooklyn Net was what some may call a baptism by fire. With starting point guard Jeremy Lin injured early in the...

From WSOU to WFAN: Joey Wahler’s path to success

When WFAN and CBS Sports talent Joey Wahler first came to Seton Hall as a freshman in 1986, the men’s basketball team experienced little success.

An anchor, writer and play-by-play man, Wahler’s passion for journalism has always been rooted in storytelling. As a member of The...
