Thompson launches clothing line ‘Aspire’

Baseball is a game of chess. Each pitch in every at-bat is a different way to attack the opposing team. Despite it taking a lot of physical skill to be a prominent player in the sport, the mental game is what widens the gap of the competition.

Despite an NIT bid, Seton Hall ended last season with an even 16-16 record. The roster has experienced significant turnover since then, but with...

NBA’s new schedule creates a more watchable league

The NBA has had a schedule problem for many seasons, but this year, it finally addressed it. In recent years, the NBA schedule was full of teams with obscenely large travel schedules, back-to-back games and three games in four nights. It became too much and teams began resting their players during some of these road trips and back-to-backs. What did that create? Well, take for example the March 11, 2017, game between the Golden State...
