Video: UConn Women Did Just Fine Without Stewie Early Against Rutgers

If you tuned into the UConn women’s basketball game against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights on Monday night, you might have noticed that Breanna Stewart wasn’t on the floor. It wasn’t because she was hurt. Stewie found herself what I’ll say was questionable foul trouble after two calls against her that really should have gone the other way. That withstanding, it was a chance...

Vine: Maryland’s Dez Wells Bites On A Shot Fake, Jumps Over A Rutgers Player, Forces A Travel

We’re not stranger to Maryland star Dez Wells’ freakish athleticism, but he’s really reiterated it tonight against Rutgers…by getting tricked by a shot fake. Rutgers guard Myles Mack faked a shot, got Wells to bite, which resulted in Wells jumping directly over the 5-foot-10 Mack, who then traveled, probably because he couldn’t believe what had just happened.

Notre Dame makes embarrassing mistake

Chris Muller is a rising redshirt junior at Rutgers. He has appeared in 26 games for the Scarlet Knights the past two seasons, making 25 starts at right guard.  One of those starts was actually against Notre Dame in the 2013 Pinstripe Bowl. Apparently, the Fighting Irish staff either didn’t remember Muller from that game, or were so impressed that they are attempting to recruit...

Kyle Flood walking fine line between genius and mad in Rutgers’ recruiting hires

What does a $1 million gift to Rutgers football program get you? The recruiting coordinator position. At least that is the potential message being sent if Rutgers goes ahead with the reported hire of booster Jeff Towers as the recruiting coordinator. It’s also a dangerous, yet potentially game changing hire if it happens. Clearly Towers’ financial obligations and remaining gift...
