Senior column: It is never too late to do a 180

I went to a high school that molded engineers, and my class was filled with some of the smartest math and science students in New Jersey. I loved math throughout my school years, but liked it less as I got older. It became harder for me to picture being in math and science for the rest of my life.   I had taken just two communications classes throughout high school outside English courses, and those two classes opened my eyes to a...

‘Millennials’ in sports get undeserved negative connotation

Forget accomplishments and statistics – once one is pegged as a millennial, especially in the sports world, there is something immediately wrong. Coming from prior generations, placing a “millennial” tag on an athlete brings implied immaturity and, at times, laziness. A millennial can also mean being too cocky and averse to help. While not saying these attributes outright, they were implied in ex-UCLA football coach Jim Mora’s...

Seton Hall seniors’ legacy lies in what they leave behind

Kansas has answer to defeat Seton Hall in seniors’ final bow

Seton Hall’s seniors have always been chasers. They chased rankings. They chased legacies. They chased greatness. In the team’s second-round NCAA Tournament game against Kansas on Saturday, that role was no different. A No. 8 seed against a No. 1 in an environment fit for a Kansas fan put Seton Hall as the chaser on the biggest stage the seniors have seen. It was only fitting Seton Hall found itself in that role throughout the game....

Is Big East play Seton Hall’s secret weapon against Kansas?

A neutral site for Seton Hall in Wichita, Kan. will turn largely into a Kansas home game as Jayhawk fans file in on Saturday night at Wintrust Arena.

Pirates’ Desi Rogriguez is a changed man

He came off the bench. He could not shoot threes. He was a little timid. In his freshman season, Desi Rodriguez was just an ordinary player. He did not stand out, partly because of the stellar freshmen he was surrounded by and in large part because he did not understand the college game. Rodriguez came to Seton Hall along with Isaiah Whitehead, his teammate from Abraham Lincoln High School. Whitehead, a five-star a recruit and one of...
