He has been a very good rebounder, and we'll need an all hands on deck approach to rebounding against a big physical Rutgers team. Does anybody know what his injury was? Looked like cramping but I haven't heard anything about it.

I think Noah will be good to go. He looked fine in warmups prior to Lowell, and probably didn't play as a precaution.
McCall said it was just cramping and he was pretty confident that TJ would be OK. Noah is more of a question since it was a leg injury. I agree that we need everyone to have a shot at beating Rutgers. Noah is our best guy at breaking the press.
Good news on TJ, thanks. We definitely need Noah, especially if Rutgers is a pressing team. We had a very difficult time breaking Lowell's press on Wednesday.

Since the schedule came out, I thought this would probably be the toughest home game of 2021-22, certainly the toughest OOC. Wish we had someone to match up with Harper. He's so good, and Rutgers has enough other threats that you can't leave them. So far this year, Rutgers has been great on defense but struggling on offense. They started the season 3-0, but lost their last 2, including to Lafayette Monday. That likely led to a tough week of practice and they'll come with attitude. They're big and physical. We need to play very tough and shoot well to win this one.

Game is on SNY Sports! Don’t know if this is only for folks in the NYC area but what a pleasant surprise to see that.

“Rutgers finding their offense.”

Well, that is what we do; help teams find their offense.
