Series History: Seton Hall leads the all-time series 39-30, but Rutgers won last season, as well as three of the past five played at the Rock (Prudential Center). This annual meeting was dubbed the Garden State Hardwood Classic after Rutgers left the Big East, with Seton Hall leading 3-1.
Notes: Rutgers athletic director Pat Hobbs hired both head coaches in this game, as he served as interim AD at Seton Hall previously and tabbed Kevin Willard for the job. He hired Steve Pikiell at Rutgers just a few months after becoming AD on the banks in late 2015. Seton Hall’s Michael Nzei and Rutgers’ Mamadou Doucoure played high school basketball together at Our New Savior American in Long Island.
The best part of the Rutgers-Seton Hall rivalry for me is it’s the one game you throw everything out that normally matters prediction wise like record, matchups, trends & know whatever happens it’s going to be the most intense game of the season with some type of controversy.— Aaron Breitman (@aaron_breitman) December 15, 2018
