The Big East is a tough conference; some say the best in the country. But after going nearly 10 minutes without a score and giving up 23 unanswered points, Rutgers would be hard-pressed to win against some of New Jersey's best high school teams. So when the Scarlet Knights pulled the feat against No. 9 Louisville midway through the first half, the game's outcome was determined relatively early.
After beginning 2009 on the road, the Rutgers gymnastics team returns to campus Saturday afternoon for their home opener.
Almost immediately after it was announced that Bob Mulcahy would no longer serve as athletic director, most of the pundits covering the event — whether paid or self-proclaimed — made it sound as if the decision to keep Mulcahy in his post was a simple one. Ironically enough, the polar reaction to the news proved how complex the true answer was.
The Rutgers gymnastics team hit the road after the New Year to begin their 2009 campaign, but the biggest news came away from the gym when the team learned they would be without top gymnast Laura Sevarino for an extended period of time after injuring her foot in practice.
The Rutgers track team resumed its season after about a month of no scheduled meets Saturday, Jan. 10 at the annual Yale Invitational hosted in New Haven, Conn.
There were few surprises Jan. 16 and 17 when the RU Aquatics Center hosted the Swim World Conference Carnival. The No. 6 ranked Florida Gators took the top spot in the competition followed by the No. 14 North Carolina Tar Heels.
The semester break has been more than unkind to the Rutgers women's basketball team. Not only did the Scarlet Knights drop another close game to Tennessee, this time at home, but Rutgers lost three consecutive games for the first time in the last five years and lost their first two Big East games for the first time under head coach C. Vivian Stringer.
