Delgado embracing role as jack-of-all trades

Seton Hall senior center Angel Delgado has made his name as a dominating presence on the offensive and defensive glass, but rebounding is not all the Dominican Republic native is bringing to the table so far in 2017.

Last year, Delgado showcased his ability to make passes out...

While the offensive front for the Hall may be promising, Bozzella knows that his team will struggle if they are unable to...
