In the next couple of weeks, we will be busy setting you up for the NBA and college basketball seasons (specifically the Big East). The next four days or so are especially packed with events, so there should be even more to come:
Tuesday (slightly unrelated, but local nonetheless)-- Rutgers vs. No. 4 St. John's in Big East men's soccer action at Yurcak Field in Piscataway (it's basically win-out or no conference tournament for Bob Reasso and company).
Wednesday and Thursday-- Rutgers men's and women's basketball Media Days
Friday-- Highland Park (5-1) vs. Middlesex (6-0) @ JP Stevens High School in Edison-- a Central Jersey Group I football tilt with the Gold Division title on the line and state tournament implications.
Owls' coach Rich McGlynn told me last night that Bryant Fitzgerald's performance at Spotswood was dominant and that his squad's intensity level is "exactly where it needs to be for a must-get game."
NOTE: It's pretty exciting to realize that the Scarlet Knights' men's and women's basketball teams open up the 2008-2009 campaign at the RAC in a mere 19 days... a return to the hardwood is near.
