It may be national signing day for college football, but we have a live one at the RAC tonight for basketball. Rutgers has a legitimate chance to end their 24 game Big Ten conference losing streak. Both teams have seen their frontcourts ravaged by injuries. Both teams struggle to rebound and defend.
