No one said this rivalry was for the faint of heart. This is for bragging rights. This is for basketball lore in the state of New Jersey.#DeckTheHall pic.twitter.com/kj2eMiuQ6t
Fantastic job by Rutgers marketing maven Mike Greengarten and his team for creating this video. Absolutely loved the old clips of past games and moments in this rivalry. It was like seeing your Rutgers basketball life as a fan flash before your eyes. Let’s hope Saturday’s game can live up to the hype. I’m betting it will. See you at the RAC for what is officially a showdown at high noon!
This is fantastic---a total declaration of war. Looks like Rutgers made the most of the Boardwalk Trophy Seton Hall lent it. Great job by the (surprise) narrator too. https://t.co/l9XSb0j36A— Jerry Carino (@NJHoopsHaven) December 16, 2017
