Game Preview

The Big Ten home opener is upon us and it’s as close to a must win as any December game can be. Rutgers needs a quality win and need to establish a home court advantage in conference play. In addition, they need to build confidence ahead of Saturday’s clash with Seton Hall. Keeping Wisconsin in check from behind the arc is a major key tonight. Let’s hope we see their best performance of the season so far in front of an almost sold out RAC. Join us in the comment section during the game and follow us on Twitter for live commentary.
