Derek Jenkins adjusting to life in the pros

It was just last spring when former Seton Hall outfielder Derek Jenkins led the nation with 52 stolen bases on his way to being named to the All-Big East First Team. Just a few weeks after a senior season in which he hit .299 and drove in 35 runs to go along with the massive stolen base total, Jenkins was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the 26th round on the MLB Draft. All of a sudden, a dream had become a reality....

Dani duo, recruits bring hope to women’s soccer

Last season was another rough campaign for Rick Stainton and the women’s soccer team, finishing with a 5-11-1 record and a 1-8 record in Big East play. Though the record may not look pretty, it was Stainton’s best season at the helm of the club since being named head coach before the start of the 2014 season. Stainton’s team is young, as it will be losing just five players to graduation, two of which were key members of last season’s...

NFL Pro Bowl needs to pick up ratings or shut down

On Jan. 29, the AFC and NFC squared off in the annual NFL Pro Bowl. What transpired was actually a somewhat competitive game, in which players actually seemed to care a little bit about the outing at hand. It would ultimately be the AFC who came out on top with a 20-13 victory. Then Monday came, and the ratings for the game were released. To put it mildly, it wasn’t too pretty. The Pro Bowl this year drew a 4.6 overnight rating,...

Ultimately, the Rams were granted the rights to move to L.A., while the other two teams were left in their original cities. Until now. The Chargers announced on Jan. 12...

Slow starts plaguing Pirates

College basketball is a 40-minute game. From the initial tip to the final buzzer, every play matters when deciding the outcome. Lately, it seems as if the Seton Hall men’s basketball team hasn’t gotten the memo. It all began during the matchup with Rutgers on Dec. 23. The Hall’s lackluster shooting in the first half resulted in a nine-point deficit at halftime to a defensive-minded but inferior Scarlet Knights team. It took a valiant...

Success for women’s basketball relies on resiliency
