Westbrook in the right following run-in with unruly fans

Raucous crowds come with every professional sporting event. When it comes to maintaining home court advantage, a rowdy fan base that gets into the heads of opposing players is invaluable. But in some instances, fans take it too far. That was the case on April 28, when the Oklahoma City Thunder took on the Utah Jazz in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. With a chance to send the series back to Oklahoma City for a Game...

For Melody Taal, education and sports have always had equal importance.

The transition began with a key decision between choosing to pursue professional tennis or attending a university. In the Netherlands, these two were mutually-exclusive; however, in the United States, she had the ability to...

So, Seton Hall…Are we getting a commencement speaker?

Ah, yes. It’s that time of year again. The birds are (not really) chirping. The weather is (not really) getting warmer. And Seton Hall has (not) announced a commencement speaker for the 2018 graduation ceremony. Please note the sarcasm. Commencement speakers have been a touchy subject for seniors at SHU the last few years.

With target on his back, Carrington needs to steer clear of Wolfpack press

The Big East features its share of stout defensive teams, but Seton Hall Pirates has not seen a defense like the one North Carolina State will throw at them in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday. Led by first-year head coach Kevin Keatts, the Wolfpack employs a full-court, man-to-man ball pressure scheme with an occasional full-court press thrown in. While plenty of teams in the Big East apply man-to-man ball pressure,...
