The Raritan Vs. the Potomac

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Rutgers takes on George Washington in the District of Columbia.

The Scarlet Knights are back in action tomorrow night on SNY as they take on a red hot GW.

Reasons for Optimism:

--The Scarlet Knights are expected to be whole--or close to it.  Although Kerwin Okoro is still out, Rutgers is expected to be ten deep for the first time all season.  This will add five extra fouls down low--at the very last.  Kadeem Jack will be back and that will be an impact move, and allow Junior Etou to ease himself in a bit.  And if Craig Brown can fill in at 2 guard at all, it allows Jerome Seagears, Myles Mack and D'Von Campbell's minutes to be a little more spread out.

--They're rested.  After playing 8 games in 18 days, the Scarlet Knights had a week off to lick their wounds and practice.  The team will be fresh, and you shouldn't see too many front rim shots.  Plus, Eddie Jordan said he and the coaches added some new wrinkles on the court to help them win. Hopefully, these are smart coaching decisions.

--George Washington might be overconfident.  They're 6-1, coming off a big win against Creighton on Sunday.  Is GW riding a hot streak?

Reasons for Pessimism:

--Maybe this team isn't very good.  The loss to FDU aside (which was embarrassing), this team has been in dogfights against other not so good teams.  Though Drexel and UAB are trending well, William and Mary isn't.  And Stillman was able to hang tough.

--George Washington is good.  This team is 6-1 and beat Creighton.  They are a legit team with some big time talent.

Tip is at 7.  It's a big game.  Hopefully the Knights bounce back.
