The Open Thread: Villanova at Rutgers

Wildcats vs Scarlet Knights coverage

The Villanova Wildcats make their long-anticipated (I kid, I kid) return to The RAC tonight to take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in a BEAST matchup of local rivals. TSN has their preview here.

Rutgers coach Mike Rice tried to add to fuel to the fire when Adam Zagoria quoted him as pretty much saying he should have beaten Villanova in the NCAA Tournament last year. According to Rice, the last 15 whistles of the game went against Robert Morris, allowing Villanova to win.

Earlier this season, Villanova knocked off Rutgers 81-65 at The Pavilion behind Corey Stokes' 23 points. Make sure to check out On the Banks for more coverage on the game!
