Series History: East Carolina won the only meeting between the two programs, 79-74 on November 14, 2001.

Last season, Rutgers barely escaped the day after Thanksgiving with a last second victory over Hartford. Let's hope this team can come out ready to play and take control of the game. East Carolina has struggled this season so far, but they have the most size and depth of any team Rutgers has played so far. After a strong performance in a 29 point victory over Bryant on Tuesday, Rutgers will look to continue forward progress with another solid effort today.
