It was an hour and a half before tip-off and the Rutgers women's basketball team huddled at center court for stretching exercises. Shalicia Hurns stood over the players while they prepared.
It was a hard scene for her to watch.
It seems a lifetime since Hurns, a junior transfer from Purdue, has played in a game. And last night's game -- Rutgers' first exhibition of the season -- was tougher than most to sit through.

Knights in the Pros
The kid from Rutgers is well known in the Jets' locker room. To be sure, his former teammates have firsthand insight into the competitor that is Miami Dolphins quarterback Ray Lucas.
So, they have no doubt that a bruised throwing shoulder is not about to keep him from starting Sunday night against the Jets at Giants Stadium, only a few miles from where he grew up in Harrison.
Jets, Lucas excited to meet

Winning can be boring.
At least it seems to be at a place like Miami, which has become almost lethargic these past three weeks. Subpar performances against Florida State, West Virginia and Rutgers finally were too much for the AP pollsters, who dropped Miami to second this week.

The Heisman Trophy usually goes to a quarterback or a running back on a highly ranked, highly televised team located anywhere other than the West Coast. But this season, the race is as fuzzy as anyone can remember. So, could a quarterback who plays on an unranked team in a "minor" conference such as the Mid-American lose two games, miss a game or two because of injury and still win the award?
Leftwich has Heisman moment
After last weekend's upheaval, it might appear on the surface that this Saturday will allow most of the remaining contenders to catch their breath. Washington State is the only top team to face another ranked opponent when it hosts No. 15 Oregon. Miami and Oklahoma, however, travel to two of the most difficult environments in college football.
Top teams better be on their guard this week
