Game Preview

Here we are, the day after Thansgiving, and Rutgers basketball enters this afternoon’s game with a 5-0 record. A win today over Hartford would mark the best start to a season for the program since the 1975-1976 Final Four team. There is no comparison to this current team to the greatest in Rutgers history, but it would still be something considering the recent debacles of seasons past.

Lets hope for a strong effort from the start in this game and a convincing victory. This team set a goal to be 6-0 before heading south to take on one of the best teams in the ACC in Miami. The table is set, now is time to take care of business in front of the home crowd. Join us in the comment section during the game. Let’s go RU!
