Basketball Begins: Jordan on First Practice

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Instead of the flashes and bangs of a "midnight madness" Rutgers coach Eddie Jordan made his players run, and run some more. At the end of a demanding three-and-a-half hour practice, Jordan spoke about what he saw in his first practice of the year and the emphasis early in camp.

The first Big Ten season for Rutgers basketball will be about tough defense and hustle. Those were Eddie Jordan's focuses in the first official practice of the semester Sunday at the RAC.

Jordan returns impact seniors Myles Mack and Kadeem Jack. He relied on both to help a large group of new additions get used to the action in practice.

Rutgers opens the season Nov. 16 against George Washington.
