The Scarlet Knights aren't the worst team in the Big East, but they are the league's worst defensive team. They don't produce turnovers, they give up too many offensive rebounds and they're letting opponents shoot nearly 47 percent from inside the arc. All of those things will be problems in Big East play.

Gary Parrish picks Rutgers to finish 13th in the Big East and makes a very valid point about their defense. It must improve. However, Rutgers is still good enough to win 7 conference games. And if the defense comes up to Mike Rice standards, they could be even better. Then there's this poll which has Rutgers at 28th in the nation, and pegged for 10 Big East wins.
