If Rutgers continues its 2002 trend of playing to the level of the competition, it may have a difficult time figuring out just how well to play this Saturday.
That's because this week's opponent, the Temple Owls, are a deceivingly better team than recent tradition may lead one to think.
"We let a couple opportunities go by or we would be playing for something very big for us right now," Temple coach Bobby Wallace said.
RU looks for win vs. Temple on Senior Day

He had his baptism by fire, now he's working on his confirmation. Rutgers true freshman quarterback Ryan Hart got his first career start against No. 1 Miami two weeks ago, and opened the game with a seven-play, 80-yard touchdown drive. Rutgers went on to lose the game, 42-17, but Hart played well enough to win his second start against Temple on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at Rutgers Stadium.
With the quarterback position still up in the air for the Scarlet Knights, Hart will be looking to build on his 9-for-23 passing performance that went for 110 yards with two interceptions.

Men's Basketball

Marquis Webb, a 6-4, 195-pound guard from Paterson Catholic High School has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball at Rutgers University for head coach Gary Waters, it was announced today.
Webb averaged 16.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 3.2 steals per game while earning All-State (second-team) and All-Passaic County (first-team) honors in 2001-02. He helped lead Paterson Catholic to a 23-3 record, a berth in the NJSIAA North Jersey, Parochial A final and to the Passaic County Tournament championship. Webb, who made 71 three-point shots last season, has 1,240 career points entering his senior season.
Paterson's Webb Commits to Rutgers

Senior guard Jerome Coleman (Brooklyn, NY) scored a game-high 28 points, and junior forward Herve Lamizana (Abidgen, Ivory Coast, Africa) added 16 points and blocked 10 shots, as the Rutgers basketball team defeated the One-World All-Stars 80-76 in a pre-season exhibition game at the Louis Brown Athletic Center.
Coleman, who was the Scarlet Knights’ leading scorer last season at nearly 17 points per outing, hit on 9-of-19 from the field (including three three-pointers) and sank all seven of his free throw attempts. Lamizana gave Rutgers a solid presence in the paint throughout the game, hitting on 5-of-8 from the field. The 6-10 Lamizana nearly recorded a triple-double as he pulled down a team-high nine rebounds.
Rutgers Defeats One World All-Stars 80-76

It was just an exhibition game, but maybe it was also a sign of things to come for Rutgers.
The Scarlet Knights did not shoot well last night. They did not get much interior scoring or production from their bench. But they had Herve Lamizana. And on some nights -- nights when he is playing like he did against the OneWorld All-Stars -- that might be enough.
Lamizana fires up Rutgers

Two Jason McCoy free throws with nine seconds remaining iced the Rutgers men's basketball team's 80-76 win over the One-World All-Stars in an exhibition game last night at the Louis Brown Athletic Center.
After junior forward Herve Lamizana converted 1-of-2 free throw attempts to make the score 78-76 in favor of the Scarlet Knights (1-0), senior guard Jerome Coleman intercepted the All-Stars' inbounds pass and deflected.
Rutgers knocks off All-Stars

Paterson Catholic's Marquis Webb became the first of Rutgers men's basketball's three verbal commitments to sign a national letter of intent to join the team for next season.
A 6-foot 4-inch guard, Webb is a consensus national Top 100 recruit and is the first New Jersey native to be signed by head coach Gary Waters, now in his second season.
