Of all the numbers that littered the box score following Rutgers' 54-41 victory Saturday night over Delaware State, the one that likely pleased Scarlet Knights coach Gary Waters most was the 21 minutes played by center Kareem Wright.
It marked just the second time all season the 6-9 senior has been on the floor that much. Wright, who managed to stay out of foul trouble for the first time since playing a season-high 24 minutes against Princeton earlier this month, responded with eight points and eight rebounds to match his season high in each category.
Wright stays out of foul trouble
Rutgers has faced its share of patsies this season, but tonight's opponent should not be considered a pushover.
The Scarlet Knights (7-3) meet Prairie View A&M (1-6) in their next-to-last nonconference game before opening Big East play on Jan. 12 against Pittsburgh.
Prairie View A&M opened this season with an upset of Houston, blew a second-half lead in a 12-point loss to No. 5 Oklahoma and fell in double overtime to Texas A&M.

The year 2002 didnt have a lot of great memories for the fortunes of womens basketball at Rutgers University.
The years finale, however, will qualify for the highlight film.
While the Scarlet Knights were making highlights, the "RAC" continues to be a house of horrors for former Mercer County College star Joe McKeown.
The George Washington coach is now 1-8 in trips to Piscataway after his Colonials fell to the Scarlet Knights, 87-72, yesterday at the Louis Brown Athletic Center before a scarlet-clad crowd of 2,579.
Rutgers sends 2002 off on the right note
Cappie Pondexter launched the ball inside to Michelle Campbell, who in full stride and nearly under the basket, hauled it down with one hand, knocked it up off the glass and in, and drew the foul.
That wouldn't have happened last season.
And that's why Rutgers coach C. Vivian Stringer can't stop smiling.
RU hits on all cylinders in win
Dawn McCullouch leaps over a sprawled defender and breaks away down the floor. The wind hits her face as she hits her stride, leaving the competition in her wake.
This is where McCullouch belongs -- on her own, in the open court, waiting for the pass.
The Rutgers junior is, after all, the daughter of a wide receiver. Her father, Earl, was a first-round draft choice out of USC in 1968. He spent seven years with the Detroit Lions and was the NFL's Rookie of the Year in '68.
Rutgers women: McCullouch helps outrun GW
Rutgers women's basketball coach C. Vivian Stringer usually keeps her emotions under control on the sideline, maintaining an even temper regardless of the score.
But as she walked off the floor following the Scarlet Knights' 87-72 win over George Washington on Sunday, Stringer couldn't help but show a bit more emotion.

We had to make some tough, tough choices for TheInsiders.com/CNNSI.com All-America Team, especially on the offensive side of the ball.
Two positions in particular were very difficult to determine, quarterback and wide receiver. This season there are three elite quarterbacks -- Kyle Wright, Chris Leak and JaMarcus Russell.

When word reached the out-of-the-way college football outpost of Pullman, Wash., that Mike Price, the beloved longtime caretaker of its occasionally successful program, was going to be Alabama's next head coach, the disbelief was palpable.
