Scarlet Report Preview: Rutgers Basketball Tips Off 2015-16 Season

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Finally, Rutgers basketball has returned to the RAC. The Scarlet Knights and coach Eddie Jordan are back and hungry to return to the court after 15 straight losses to end last season. What are the stories of the 2015-16 season? Scarlet Report discusses prior to Friday's tip-off against Rutgers-Newark.

The Big Ten was a wake-up call for Rutgers basketball, and year two presents a different challenge with significant roster turnover. Head coach Eddie Jordan has six new players ready for action this season with Corey Sanders and DeShawn Freeman as instant impact contenders.

Jordan shook up his offensive game plan with a move away from the Princeton-style offense, and leads a banged up roster into tonight's tip-off against Rutgers-Newark. Will this season showcase improvement from last year's 10-22 campaign? When will the growing postseason drought end?

Scarlet Report's Sam Hellman and Scout's Brian Dohn discuss and preview the season.
