If you're out hunting for a Christmas tree or busy this Saturday afternoon, here's recap of what you've missed:â†µ
-- The Rutgers men's basketball team improved to 6-2 overall with a 63-54 victory over Auburn.â†µ
This was the first time I witnessed the new-look Scarlet Knights under first-year head coach Mike Rice and they played solid despite starting very sluggish.â†µ
However, Rice stole the show with his frantic yelling and pace up-and-down the sidelines. If you haven't seen him before its very entertaining to watch. He reacts to everything on the court and makes the smallest mistake seem life or death.â†µ
If you think Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim is bad. Rice blows him out of the water.â†µ
-- In the FCS playoffs, non-seeded Villanova dominated top-seeded Appalachian State, 42-24, in the quarterfinals.â†µ
The Wildcats (9-4), which are rumored to have a "it's up to you" invitation to join the Big East Conference, will play either Eastern Washington or North Doakota State next weekend in the semis.â†µ
It will be interesting what effect, if any, a FCS Championship will have on 'Nova's decision to move up to FBS status.
