Here’s a photo of me from the last time Rutgers was ranked. (Still have the shirt.)
For the first time in 41 years, the Rutgers basketball team is in the AP Top 25. The Scarlet Knights slot in at No. 24: https://t.co/E0X8qX0sKl
In just a month, my personal evolution on Rutgers making the NCAA Tournament has gone from won't, to might, to should, to will, and now, to must. This team proves, game after game, that it belongs. Column: https://t.co/gF0h8O6u62
What a great early college hoops window: • Ohio State at Indiana • Georgia at Auburn • Alabama at Kentucky • Georgetown at Villanova • Rutgers at Illinois • DePaul at St. John’s All at noon. Then the game of the day — Baylor at Kansas — at 1 pm.
Rutgers with a HUGE win over Penn State at the RAC without it’s best player, Geo Baker. Ron Harper’s kid was terrific. Scarlet Knight now 12-3 for the first time since 1975-76 and have beaten Seton Hall, Wisconsin and now a ranked Nittany Lions team. Steve Pikiell, man.
