Rutgers and Notre Dame last met in the opening round of the 2005 Big East tournament where the Scarlet Knights posted a 72-65 upset victory.
Rutgers will be without freshman forward JR Inman, the top shot-blocker among BIG EAST freshmen who was injured in a 6-point loss at Seton Hall this past weekend. The Scarlet Knights will also be without the services of junior forward jumping-jack Adrian Hill who is expected to miss the remainder of the season.
Rutgers leads the all-time series versus Notre Dame by a 22-19 margin.
Below are the pre-game notes as released by the Rutgers University Sports Information Department.
