Game Preview

Wash that bad taste out of your mouth from last night’s football game and get ready for basketball. Rutgers has a chance to start the season 4-0 for the first time in 16 years. While the schedule has not been menacing in the least, it’s obvious this team is improved under first year head coach Steve Pikiell.

The roster is filled with more talent, the emphasis on rebounding and defense is greater, and this team is playing with a common goal and purpose. Their is still major room to improve with shooting and limiting turnovers, but positive signs are everywhere.

Watch the game on BTN on this early Sunday afternoon and get to know this team. They will be much more interesting and fun to watch this season then they have been in several years. Join us in the comment section during the game and go RU!!
