TV: Rice Looks to USF

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers has one more home game before a tough slate of Big East travel. Hosting South Florida at 9 p.m. Thursday, head coach Mike Rice discussed the successes and failures experienced against Cincinnati and changes that need to take place in practice this week.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- A 10-point loss to Cincinnati Saturday night had nothing to do with effort, said Rutgers head coach Mike Rice.

A new-look Cincinnati game plan, an off shooting night for Rutgers and a lack of toughness inside all contributed to the loss.

Looking ahead to South Florida, Rutgers has its sights set on a 3-2 Big East record with a victory. A favorite over the Bulls, Rutgers seeks momentum heading into a tough road stretch.

Following Tuesday's practice, Rice spoke with the media about the matchup and the need to get Elijah Carter going after two poor offensive performances.
