Athletic Director Julie Hermann’s comments about The Star-Ledger are as ironic as a university neglecting to do a background check on an alleged abuser after the fallout from an abusive coach. Or as ironic as a student journalist with no ethics in a media ethics class. Hermann said the death of The Star-Ledger “would be great” in a wide-ranging interview Feb. 27 with a Rutgers media ethics class.
Junior guards Jerome Seagears and D’Von Campbell and junior wing Craig Brown received transfer releases from the Rutgers men’s basketball team.Seagears confirmed his transfer on Twitter. “I have officially received my full release from Rutgers and free to go anywhere in the country,” Seagears tweeted. “Looking forward to what the future brings!”
A 92-31 loss derives from more than a few mistakes. For the Rutgers men’s basketball team, the March 13 loss against Louisville in the AAC Tournament represented a rebuilding process far from completion. This was a season (12-21, 5-13) for first-year head coach Eddie Jordan to acclimate to the Scarlet Knights and coaching college basketball.
MEMPHIS — No one said things would be easy for the Rutgers men’s basketball team. But after the Scarlet Knights’ 92-31 loss to Louisville today, head coach Eddie Jordan already owns three losses more lopsided than any in the Mike Rice era. Rice’s worst defeat came was a 70-49 rout against Villanova in 2012’s Big East Tournament. That was mild compared to Rutgers’ AAC quarterfinal loss.
MEMPHIS — When senior forward Wally Judge heard the whistle on South Florida forward Victor Rudd’s layup, he instantly knew he had fouled out. Judge removed his headband for what was possibly the final time after leaving the game last night against South Florida. If the last-seeded Bulls defeated the Rutgers men’s basketball team in the first round of the AAC Tournament, Judge had to sit for the final 5:04 of it.
Even the coach whose team handed the Rutgers men’s basketball team its most lopsided loss of the season gave the Scarlet Knights a chance in the AAC Tournament. “Rutgers has very good guard play, and their frontcourt’s getting better,” said Louisville head coach Rick Pitino on Monday’s AAC coaches teleconference.
As the Rutgers men’s basketball team’s chances of upsetting No. 15 Cincinnati hinged on the AAC’s leading scorer’s fingertips, the Louis Brown Athletic Center shook at seismic levels. Senior wing J.J. Moore, playing his final home and regular-season game, decently defended guard Sean Kilpatrick throughout the Scarlet Knights’ 70-66 loss.
The Rutgers men’s basketball team’s 2010 recruiting class comprised of Gilvydas Biruta, Mike Poole, Austin Carroll and Tyree Graham. Four years ago, these players were set to receive honors on 2014’s senior night, which occurs tomorrow against No. 15 Cincinnati (24-5, 13-3). Now the team will honor forward Wally Judge and wing J.J. Moore, who transferred from Kansas State and Pittsburgh, respectively.
In the final 10 minutes last night against Connecticut, the Rutgers men’s basketball team got four field goals and two free throws. Junior forward Kadeem Jack’s insertion into the game against No. 19 UConn was the Scarlet Knights’ chance to finally overcome a one-possession deficit. The Knights trailed, 56-53, with 10:05 left in Storrs, Conn. It was impressive considering Huskies guard Shabazz Napier forgot how to miss 3-pointers.
On rare occasion when junior guard Jerome Seagears jacks up long-range shots for the Rutgers men’s basketball team, they fall. It happened when Seagears last confronted Connecticut guard Shabazz Napier, known for his agility and quick decisions. Seagears is quick enough to control the ball, leading the AAC with a 2.5 assist-to-turnover ratio. He makes decisions as quickly as anyone, but they often lead to poor shot selection.
Eddie Jordan and Mike Rice present a myriad of differences in on-court demeanor. Firstly, when Jordan wears a suit as Rutgers head men’s basketball coach, his jacket doesn’t end up on the floor. Rice was a disciplinarian whose abuse in practices eventually got him fired.
As the Rutgers men’s basketball team led South Florida, 74-73, with five seconds left, junior forward Kadeem Jack gave USF forward Victor Rudd something to laugh about. “I actually told him [during the dead ball on that play], ‘I know it’s coming to you, so I’m going to play up on you hard,’” Jack said postgame.
The Rutgers men’s basketball team’s loss against Central Florida on Wednesday put the Scarlet Knights in a bad spot. Rutgers’ (10-18, 4-11) goal is to finish sixth in the AAC, which gives it a first-round bye in the conference tournament. That is Houston’s (13-14, 5-9) to take with an easier schedule than the Knights for the rest of the regular season. The Knights next host South Florida (12-16, 3-12) tomorrow, but it gets more difficult from there.
A day after Rutgers head men’s basketball coach Eddie Jordan emphasized to media that the Scarlet Knights take too many bad shots, Rutgers had to rely on one last night. Senior forward J.J. Moore’s NBA-range 3-pointer hung in the air as Rutgers trailed Central Florida, 65-63. It bounced off the rim, leaving Rutgers with a 67-65 loss in Orlando. Rutgers (10-18, 4-11) played strong defense overall against UCF, allowing only 38.9 percent field goal shooting.
Head coach Eddie Jordan possibly eliminated the opportunity for some Rutgers men’s basketball veterans to play significantly. Jordan expressed faith in the lineup he used for the entire final 10:19 Thursday against Memphis: junior guard Myles Mack, junior wing Malick Kone, freshman forward Junior Etou and junior forwards Craig Brown and Kadeem Jack.
The goal of the Rutgers men’s basketball team to finish sixth in the AAC is modest, but head coach Eddie Jordan wondered if the Scarlet Knights are truly worthy. “We had to have some type of redemption,” Jordan said after the Scarlet Knights’ 64-59 loss Thursday to Memphis. “The first thing I asked [pregame] was, ‘Do we belong?’”
The Rutgers men’s basketball team played like a completely different team in last night’s 64-59 loss to No. 22 Memphis than in its 48-point loss Sunday to Louisville. That excludes when the Scarlet Knights (10-17, 4-10) possessed the ball. The Knights outscored Memphis, 48-42, after the Tigers (20-6, 9-4) led, 22-11, with 8:19 left in the first half at the Louis Brown Athletic Center. But Memphis still sealed Rutgers’ 10th loss in 12 games.
Ten months and only 10 wins into Eddie Jordan’s Rutgers head men’s basketball coaching career, his players still don’t quite get his message yet.“I haven’t been able to get our guys to make plays,” Jordan said Tuesday post-practice. “We’ve got to make plays against pressure defense against physical play. We have to stay organized and disciplined, and that’s a big theme of ours.”
Sophomore wing Kerwin Okoro campaigned hard for the NCAA to give him a hardship waiver to immediately play for the Rutgers men’s basketball team. But once he received knee surgery right before the regular season, the year Okoro fought for became a year of ineffectiveness and little playing time. That was until Okoro played the defending national champions.
LOUISVILLE, KY. — Only 51 seconds and a 6-0 lead into the Rutgers men’s basketball team’s 102-54 loss last night to defending national champion Louisville, the Cardinals unloaded their full-court press. With the teams’ disparities clear as the surface of Louisville’s championship trophy and scoring so easy for No. 13 Louisville, sacrificing half-court defense wasn’t actually much of a sacrifice.
