waters pressure (wot'ers presh'er) n. 1. The intense defense opponents of a Gary Waters-coached team face from baseline to baseline (94 feet) for the duration of a college basketball game (40 minutes). By GREG TUFARO
A rabid Rutgers fan and 1977 graduate of the state university, Geza Marx has devised a novel way to support a charity and his alma mater's basketball program.
Marx stood in the pouring rain outside the Louis Brown Athletic Center on Wednesday, hawking his "Waters Pressure" T-shirts prior to a game against Fordham.
A graphic on the front of the red shirt depicts a tidal wave cresting over the numbers 94/40. The words "Waters Pressure" encircle the logo.
Some fans will be wearing Marx's creation to tonight's game against Princeton at Jadwin Gymnasium.
The shirts sell for $10 apiece and all proceeds benefit Coaches vs. Cancer, the charity for which Rutgers coach Gary Waters raised more than $15,000 last year.

Gary Waters settled into his chair at the Rutgers University men's basketball office, still a bit emotionally charged up from the whirlwind courtship that saw him upgrade from mid-major to Big East program in what seemed like the blink of an eye, and tried to gather his thoughts on that spring afternoon back in 2001.
Scanning the Scarlet Knights' roster left behind by Kevin Bannon, not to mention the info on the three recruits signed by the former coach, he could recognize talent, even with the graduation of Jeff Greer and departure of Todd Billet. The team, regardless of its previous affinity for .500 or worse, had promise.
