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.

The Seton Hall Rugby Football Club is one of the most popular club sports on campus. An official team for over...

Past motivations play into aspirations for Seton Hall’s Thelen

Abby Thelen began playing volleyball at the age of 12, participating on club teams in her native Fort Mitchell, Ky. The sport soon became her passion.
