Crucial Test for RU

The now very much embattled Rutgers Scarlet Knights Men's basketball (14-11, 4-8 BIG EAST) team faces a crucial test this evening while traveling to South Florida (6-18, 0-11 BIG EAST) to face the Bulls.

The South Florida Bulls are the lone remaining winless team in the Big East Conference. However, tonight they face a very embattled Rutgers squad that has been beleagured with injuries and now, controversy, regarding their Head Coach Gary Waters.

While South Florida has yet to reach the victory mark in conference play, having lost a school-record 13-straight games, they have been very competitive in most of their contests. Tonight, the Bulls look to take their front court advantage and set the tone of play, much as St. John's did this past week at the RAC.

Tonight's game will be produced by ESPN Regional and televised locally on MSG Network. Tipoff is set for 7:00PM.

Below are the pre-game notes as released by the Rutgers University Sports Information Department.
