Football wins against Muhlenberg to move into first in Conference

On Saturday, the Blue Jay football team hosted the Muhlenberg College Mules in quite possibly the most important game on the Centennial Conference schedule this season. With a win, the undefeated Mules would be in prime position to end Hopkins’ eight-year reign atop the Conference. Spoiler alert: that didn’t happen.

Seattle may have an NBA team once again in the near future.

NBA will return to Seattle one way or another

On October 5, two NBA teams competed in Seattle for the first time since 2008. The Golden State Warriors beat the Sacramento Kings 122-94 in KeyArena, the former home of the Seattle SuperSonics. The game was only a preseason game, so in the eyes of many, it didn’t really count for anything.
