Rutgers fans have reason to celebrate. For the first time in 30 years, the men’s basketball team is headed to the NCAA tournament. The Scarlet Knights earned a 10-seed and will play seventh-seeded Clemson this Friday in Indianapolis.
Last year’s tournament was canceled due to COVID-19. Head coach Steve Pikiell says he’s proud of his team for navigating the challenges of COVID-19 and resurrecting the basketball program.
