Corey Sanders to Sit Out Men's Basketball Opener on Friday


Corey Sanders will miss the home opener this Friday due to his participation in an unsanctioned summer league game. Rutgers self-reported the violation and the NCAA approved the one game suspension. It was also announced that sophomore center Shaq Doorson will remain out indefinitely with a foot injury. That leaves Rutgers with nine scholarship players for the opener against Rutgers-Newark. Once Sanders returns for Sunday's game against Howard, Rutgers will have ten scholarship players for the immediate future. Not an ideal start to the season for Eddie Jordan's squad.
