I am not that smart. But by being friendly to people and awkwardly initiating conversations at credentialed events, I've formed relationships with enough legitimate experts to write informed stories with semblances of intelligence. When DePaul Blue Demon basketball star Max Strus announced at the end of March that he would declare for the 2018 ...

Anything you can do, I can do better. That's what Seton Hall Pirates (18-9; 7-7 Big East) senior forward Desi Rodriguez was probably thinking as he dropped a career-high 33 points on 12-for-21 from the field in the Pirate's 82-77 win against the DePaul Blue Demons (10-16; 3-11 Big East) on Saturday afte...
