Analyzing the winning formula for women’s basketball

When Seton Hall women’s basketball head coach Tony Bozzella lost his 2015-16 starting rotation and proceeded to go about filling the void with six freshmen and a talented transfer, he never hid from the fact that last season was going to be a year of building from the ground up.

Club rugby, a campus mainstay, experiencing competitive success

Most students come into college without having ever played rugby, or even knowing any details about the sport – besides the fact that it’s similar to football, but with no padding. “It’s continuous, if you get tackled, you have to keep going as if it’s one big play,” senior and three-year club rugby player Connor Cadrin said.
