Game Preview

Here we go, the time has finally come for the annual rivalry game between Seton Hall and Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights have a tremendous opportunity to gain local and national respect with an upset victory today. It won't be easy and it's unlikely, as Seton Hall is a supremely talented and balanced team. However, after Rutgers went toe to toe at the RAC against undefeated Florida State and #2 Michigan State, perhaps the third time is the charm against a top 30 opponent at home this season.

The formula to win is nothing fancy. Defense, rebounding, second chance points, and maintaining poise are the keys to victory for Rutgers today.
