Seton Hall’s new frontcourt set to make waves in 2018-19

For the past few seasons, Seton Hall men’s basketball has relied heavily on one part of its frontcourt – Angel Delgado. The Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award winner and all-time leading rebounder in Big East history took much of the load in the paint. This year, however, Seton Hall’s frontcourt is made up of depth with some new and old faces taking center stage. Outside of Delgado and Ismael Sanogo, it was Sandro Mamukelashvili and Michael...

NCAA should abolish rule that transfers must sit out

There is a clear-cut divide in college sports as to whether the NCAA should continue to enforce its rule of requiring transfer student-athletes to sit out a year before engaging in athletics at the school they transferred to. On one side, there are the coaches, who want the rule to stay in place because allowing immediate play after transferring would cause chaos in shifting rosters.
