Rutgers Vs. Seton Hall Preview

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights look to snap their longest losing skid of the season Saturday evening when they visit the Seton Hall Pirates. (5 p.m., ESPN U)

Rutgers has dropped six straight, including five by double figures, to fall to 4-11 in the Big East. The Scarlet Knights' most recent setback came Wednesday at Marquette. Four Rutgers players managed double figures, led by 14 points from freshman Jerome Seagears, but Marquette cruised to the 82-65 victory thanks largely to 27 points from Jae Crowder.

Seton Hall boosted its NCAA Tournament at-large berth hopes with a crucial 73-55 home win against Georgetown Tuesday. The Pirates have now won four out of five, with their only loss in that span coming by five points at Cincinnati last Saturday, 62-57.
