Game Preview

And so it begins. The 2017-2018 season opener is finally here. Not the most exciting of matchups in this game, but significant in that it marks the debut of this newly assembled team. Hope is alive and well. Tonight is the start of a three game stretch in a five day period. The starting five needs to put this game way out of reach by halftime and allow the reserves to get some much needed experience on the court after the break. Central Connecticut State comes to the RAC just 43 hours after the start of this game, followed by Cleveland State on Tuesday night. Not exactly a murderer’s row, but it’s important that Rutgers starts strong in the first week of the season. Let’s hope for a boring game in the sense that the issue is never in doubt and Rutgers minimizes mistakes, while holding a comfortable lead most of the night. Join us in the comments during the game and happy season opener everybody!
