We are back with episode #5 of our On the Banks podcast, hosted by our own Lance Glinn. It may only be July, but there are plenty of reasons to be intrigued about the Rutgers men’s basketball team ahead of next season. Last week, Lance spoke with longtime OTB contributor and Rutgers hoops season ticket holder Dave White on his thoughts of where the program sits as head coach Steve Pikiell enters his third season in charge. In this latest episode, Lance sits down with the dean of the Rutgers beat, Asbury Park Press and Gannett scribe Jerry Carino. Known around local basketball circles for his must read blog New Jersey Hoops Haven, Carino has covered the Rutgers program for almost two decades. We were fortunate to have Jerry as a guest this week and he shared some great insight on what to expect from this team and individual players for the upcoming season.
Here is full rundown of what host Lance Glinn covered in this latest installment.
• Thoughts on the credit card investigation involving eight Rutgers football players
• A in-depth discussion with Carino on the loss of Corey Sanders, whether Geo Baker can replace his production, players that have impressed the coaching staff so far this offseason, what to expect from almost every player on the roster, as well as realistic expectations for next season.
This is a must listen for any Rutgers men’s basketball fan. Thanks to Jerry Carino for joining us and giving us his in-depth take on the current state of the program.
