The Tampa Bay Lightning are positioned for a deep run in the NHL playoffs. Photo via nhl.com Despite the astounding feat, the Lightning’s historic season means nothing...

Remaining tournament teams show sport’s diversity

With one week of March Madness finished, the nation is down to 16 teams vying for the National Championship. Out of the remaining colleges in the tournament, 12 hail from small markets or from towns that are more than 100 miles from a city with a professional sports team. However, these colleges are finding representation at the national level despite the small-markets in which they play, as their accomplishments are redefining the...

Preview: Wofford will give battle-tested Seton Hall a run for its money

It’s rare that a school with a student population of 1,692 turns into a basketball power, but that is exactly what Wofford managed to accomplish in 2019.

Behind the play of Fletcher McGee and an assortment of sharpshooting guards and wings, the Terriers secured the No. 7 seed in the Midwest Region of the...

A couple of Seton Hall students weighed in on what is at stake come Thursday...

Selection Sunday snubs always controversial

Just as basketball fans have come to accept Selection Sunday as tradition, the same can be said of the criticism and snubs that follow. Each year, the Selection Committee questioned about whether or not it has made the correct selections. Exactly 68 teams have been invited to “The Big Dance” and, for the most part, there is not a clear-cut snub for the media to protest over. Programs such as Alabama, TCU and Indiana all could have...

Despite end result, Seton Hall’s Big East Tournament run a noteworthy achievement

This year’s Seton Hall team was never supposed to sniff Big East Championship Saturday at Madison Square Garden. After losing four seniors and three 1,000-point scorers, the Pirates were better suited as a bottom-third team in the conference with designs on an NIT appearance. At best, this team could maybe avoid the dreaded first day of the Big East Tournament and maybe scrap for a win against another middle of the pack team. At least...
