While Jordan and Rutgers worked to make him the head of the university’s scandal-marred basketball program, there was more bad news for the Scarlet Knights.
When Rutgers coach Mike Rice was at Robert Morris, he regularly played 10 players and substituted almost every minute of every game — we expect something similar to occur with his team this season.
Mike Rice finally got the wing he’s so badly been craving. He now has the pieces in place for Rutgers to make a leap in the Big East standings next season.
Rutgers hasn’t been to the NCAA tournament since. It has also not had a winning conference record since. And only five winning seasons in the past two decades. Coach Mike Rice expects all that to change this season.
