If Rutgers can't win this game tonight, then it's hard to see many others this year. Providence is another team winless in conference play, but they've been a fair bit better to this point. Keno Davis has really made strides in his second year when you take into account losing Greedy Peterson. We can only hope for a similar bump from Mike Rice in '11-'12.
This win would be sweeter than any left on the schedule outside of Seton Hall if only for the favoritism from the league office factor. Guess that means you can count on Tim Higgins in town tonight.
