Rutgers men’s basketball’s out-of-conference schedule is here!

·1 min read

Rutgers men’s basketball announced their out-of-conference schedule for the upcoming season. The take away from the schedule drop? Rutgers will be tested more this year ahead of the Big Ten schedule.

The biggest opponents on the schedule will be Miami (26-11, No. 34 RPI), Seton Hall (20-11, No. 52 RPI) and Wake Forest (25-10, No. 69 RPI). For comparison, Rutgers finished with an 18-14 record last season and a No. 102 RPI.

Even Temple (17-12, No. 113 RPI) represents a true test for the Scarlet Knights this season.

One of the knocks for Rutgers last season and a major reason why they were in the NCAA Tournament play-in game stems from their lackluster out-of-conference slate last season.

Rutgers did not schedule Lafayette this season.

Nine of the 11 games are at Jersey Mike’s Arena.
