PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers
stuck with its big lineup Wednesday despite the return of Jerome Seagears
from ankle injury. Seagears scored 18 points, however, coming off the bench in a role that coach Eddie Jordan
"Jerome was very good in his role," Jordan said. "I like him in that role. I like him being a catalyst and attack mode type of player coming off the bench."
Seagears getting hot led to D'Von Campbell spending the game on the bench. Jordan chalked it up to a coach's decision, but is expected to use Campbell heavily in his trip home to Texas for two games this week.
