Rutgers to take on NJIT at the RAC; Rice comments on TCU


After a disappointing road loss to St. Joseph's, the Scarlet Knights return to the RAC Wednesday night.

Find out about their opponent, plus a link to Rice's comments about TCU after the jump...

NJIT is still a fledgling school when it comes to Division I basketball.  In each of the past three years, Fred Hill's squad beat them handily.  This year should be no different.

The Highlanders are 1-3 on the season beating NYU-Poly by nearly 50 points, but falling to the rest of their opponents by only a combined 9 points.  The Highlanders are improved this year, but shouldn't be Big East competitive yet.  Their leading scorer is a junior guard--Isaiah Washington.  He averages 12.5 points and also leads the team in rebounding.  Chris Flores, a sophomore guard follows with just over 11 points per game.

It will be on Mike Coburn and James Beatty-again-to shut down their main scoring threats.

The Highlanders are young, with only one senior on their squad.  They are expected to continue to improve this season.

Look for Dane Miller to try and assert himself on the offensive end.  Also, expect the Knights to try and feed the big men down low and continue to help Austin Johnson and Gil Biruta's confidence.
