As Rutgers comes upon the rugged Big East Basketball schedule, they would like to invite you to join the Scarlet R in the Coaches' Huddle - a pre-game meal featuring Rutgers Athletics. The Huddle gives you an opportunity to gain an inside look at the opponent Rutgers will be facing that night with a brief scouting report by a member of the basketball coaching staff. Each Huddle will also showcase the coach of one of our 30 intercollegiate athletic programs. In addition, the event will provide a full buffet-style meal prepared by Rutgers Catering. The cost for each person is $10 - with and additional $5 for those who would like to have beer or wine with their meal.
To reserve your spot or to ask questions, please reply back to Keith Norton at Norton@winants.rutgers.edu

Just how good is this year's Rutgers women's basketball team?
No one knows for sure, but after Saturday, it appears they are 41 points better than the middle-of-the-pack teams in their conference and good enough to draw favorable comparisons to the 1999-2000 team that reached the Final Four from someone who would know best.
RU Cap-tures ninth win in row
Herve Lamizana is fluent in two languages, but he was still at a loss to verbalize his feelings after Rutgers' latest defeat and latest meek effort on the road.
A game after being accused by Connecticut's Mike Hayes of essentially being a heartless road team, the Knights did little to refute the notion in an 86-65 loss Saturday night to Pittsburgh at the Peterson Events Center. By scoring a season-low 14 first-half points -- none the result of an assist -- and then falling behind by 31 points in the second half, Rutgers put its postseason hopes on life support.
Words can't explain Rutgers' road woes

NCAA Tournament coverage on MTV instead of CBS? It could happen, CBS Sports President Sean McManus said.
If the United States goes to war with Iraq and major developments occur during the tourney, CBS might pre-empt its basketball telecasts. If that happens, McManus said CBS probably would shift the games to MTV, VH1 or TNN.
