While Rutgers defeated Seton Hall in the first meeting, 82-78, on Jan. 7 at the RAC, Rutgers has only swept the Pirates one time (2000-2001) since becoming a BIG EAST member in 1995.
Seton Hall comes into this contest on fire, sporting a four game winning streak including impressive road wins over one of the ACC's marquee squads, NC State, and then No. 25 Syracuse.
Below are the pre-game notes as released by the Rutgers University Sports Information Department.
