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...

For the majority of those who tuned in, Super Bowl LIII could be summed up in one word: boring. Neither the New England Patriots or Los Angeles Rams could get anything going on offense. The first quarter came and went without any points, as a string of three and outs and stalled drives put a damper on the action. The Patriots got on the board in the second quarter, but not in the form of a touchdown, and took a 3-0 lead into halftime....
