Game Preview

Game two is upon us and Rutgers is a solid 10 point favorite in Vegas. I’m excited to see this team in action against better competition. There were encouraging signs in the season opener and let’s hope we see more of it this afternoon. This team certainly appears focused at the start of the season and a new slogan has been started.

#OneAgenda highlights the renewed team focus under new head coach Steve Pikiell. If all the players buy-in and commit to being a hard nosed, defensive squad that plays team basketball, they could be a lot of fun to watch this season. That mission continues today at the RAC. Join us in the comments section during the game and I’ll have a game recap later on. Enjoy the game and embrace that college basketball is back! Go RU!
