Rutgers Takes on Princeton...


Tomorrow at the RAC, Rutgers look to get back on track

Is anyone not exhausted at this point? Rutgers is 4-6 and losers of 5 Division 1 games in a row. Now the 6-1 Princeton Tigers roll into Piscataway making life more miserable for the Scarlet Knights.

Reasons for Optimism

--They have to win at some point, right? There have been hints that Rutgers is close to finding its way again, with an impressive offensive showing against George Washington and a furious comeback that fell just short against Seton Hall.

--Princeton hasn't really beaten anyone of note (unless George Mason, Bucknell and Fairleigh Dickinson are "of note." Of course, the way Rutgers is playing--they might be.)

Reasons for Pessimism

--This team is scuffling big time right now and can't seem to get out of its way. There is clearly a disconnect between what Jordan is teaching and what the players are doing. Confidence is at an all time low. And a 6-1 team might just step on their necks.

--Princeton is a good rebounding and 3 point shooting team. Rutgers isn't good at rebounding or defending the 3.

So, yeah. That's what's looking like. What else is there to say.

Oh, I know... There's a coat drive tomorrow. Help out. Here's the press release:

Here’s an easy way to make a difference this week. Jersey Cares is collecting coats at the Wednesday, December 11 men's basketball game between Rutgers University and Princeton University at the Rutgers Athletic Center in Piscataway. Bring that new or gently used winter coat and donate it to Jersey Cares for its 18th Annual Coat Drive. The Wednesday event is supported by the Rutgers Alumni Association (RAA) in partnership with the Livingston Alumni Association (LAA)

From now through February 7, 2014, Jersey Cares plans to collect and distribute more than 60,000 "gently used" winter coats to men, women and children in need throughout New Jersey.
