GAME PREVIEW

Tonight is the third game in six days for Rutgers basketball. They’re playing a team that just jumped up 10 spots in the national rankings that also has the best home record in the Big Ten a better part of two decades. It will be a great challenge for such an inexperienced team but it can only help in their development. Let’s hope for an inspired performance tonight.
