Mike Williams still remembers the feeling.(Williams quote)Then a freshman, Williams jumped out to one of his finer performances of the 2014-15 season with his tie for a team-high 15 points to go with his four steals, two assists and two rebounds. But the end result of an 81-54 blowout for the Rutgers men's basketball team in last year's Garden State Hardwood Classic against Seton Hall at the Prudential Center was hardly anything to be happy about. (Jordan quote on last year's game)Jordan has a right to believe that, despite his team falling below .500 for the first time in 2015-16, the Knights (3-4) should be better off in their rematch with the Pirates (5-2). Pointing to the youth and inexperience of Rutgers as a reason for expected growth rather than an excuse for the mishaps to the start of his third season at the helm in Piscataway, Jordan has been preaching the need for the Knights to close out winnable games. In Rutgers' last time out, Jordan watched as the Knights blew a 12-point lead with less than 10 minutes to play in a 69-68 loss to Wake Forest — the third straight.

In both halves of the Rutgers men's basketball team's 69-68 loss to Wake Forest on Monday night, the Scarlet Knights (3-4) were led by a freshman from Florida.But while the big story was Corey Sanders’ red hot start to the second half, he wouldn’t have been able to give the Knights the lead after nearly 17 minutes of action if it wasn’t for Jonathan Laurent’s performance in the first half.The forward from Orlando led Rutgers in the opening 20 minutes with eight points and six rebounds, playing a big part in why the Knights trailed by just four at the half despite the team collectively going 10-for-38 (26 percent) from the field.“Coach always wants me to come off the bench and be aggressive,” Laurent said.

In what has seem to become a common trend for the Rutgers women’s basketball team, the offense appeared as if it was stuck in the mud to open Sunday's game against Temple.

JAMAICA, N.Y. — As much as Eddie Jordan expressed the disappointment in his team's late meltdown, the Rutgers head men's basketball coach gave credit where it was due to the opponent.The Scarlet Knights (2-1) had their obvious flaws in a 61-59 collapse on the road at Carnesecca Arena in Queens, but St.

Everybody knows Chris Mullin.Whether it was from his time on the 1992 United States men's basketball "Dream Team" or from his recent time spent as an analyst on ESPN, he's a well-known presence in the basketball world.

When Eddie Jordan and his coaching staff first set eyes on Deshawn Freeman, they knew."I just saw a First Team All-American Junior College at 6-foot-7 and a half," Jordan said. "We wanted him."Soon enough, they got him.Earlier in the year on April 27, Freeman took to Twitter to announce his commitment to the Rutgers men's basketball team. In a 2015 recruiting class featuring an ESPN Top 100 recruit in four-star point guard Corey Sanders, Freeman's name tends to get lost in the mix. Despite the low-key presence bestowed in his cool, calm and collected attitude, Freeman could end up as a key piece in the Scarlet Knights' progression from the 10-22 season just a year ago that featured a 15-game losing streak — the second-longest in program history.
