Rutgers basketball vs. Holy Family: Scarlet Knights open season with lopsided victory

Chris Trotman

The Scarlet Knights earned a 92-52 victory in their preseason opener.

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights men's basketball program opened its 2012-13 season Sunday with a lopsided 92-52 victory over Holy Family at the RAC. Sophomore guard Myles Mack scored a game-high 17 points and collected six rebounds against the Scarlet Knights' Division II opponent.

Sophomores Jerome Seagears scored 16 points while Eli Carter added 14 for Rutgers, which began the game making six of its first seven shots to jump out to a nine-point lead. The Scarlet Knights closed the first half leading 44-21.

Though, the Scarlet Knights cruised to victory, head coach Mike Rice did not seem pleased about one aspect of his team's effort reports Matt Sugam of the Rutgers' SNY.TV blog.

‘The layups and the softness was something that you have to finish. You have to be strong," Rice said. "And I appreciate the Big East referees for not calling a lot of fouls against them. I do. I think it’s good for us. Finish through contact."

Rutgers will have a chance to fix its miscues Friday when it concludes its exhibition schedule with a contest against St. Peter's (7:30 p.m. on SNY). The Scarlet Knights will begin regular-season play Monday against visiting Sacred Heart Pioneers (7:30 p.m. on RVision).
