The Rutgers men's basketball team open their season against the City College of New York at the RAC on Friday night.
The visiting CCNY team had a lot happen last season that found them as a Division III team this year. They have been a Division I team, but after a major gambling scandal, the school was forced to make it a Division III team.
Head coach Steve Pikiell and his team took down St. Johns, 80-78, in an exhibition game. It should be an easy start to the season for Rutgers, so don't expect to see stars Corey Sanders, Deshawn Freeman, and Mike Williams much throughout this one.
This is the first game of three in the next five days for the Scarlet Knights. They take on Central Connecticut State on Sunday followed by Cleveland State on Tuesday.
