STORY LINES
ONE-SIDED:
At one time this was the marquee match-up in the Big East. The Scarlet Knights actually won four of six from Feb. 7, 2006 through Feb. 5, 2008. However, the Huskies have won nine straight games and Rutgers has averaged 46.2 points in this span.
CHASING A MILESTONE: Rutgers coach C. Vivian Stringer will be making her second attempt to become the fourth Division I women’s basketball coach to reach 900 wins — Pat Summitt (1,098), Sylvia Hatchell (902) and Jody Conradt (900). Stringer is 899-327 in 42 seasons.
STRUGGLES: The Scarlet Knights are ranked 262nd out of 343 teams nationally in scoring (57.4) and 302nd in turnovers (20.0). Meanwhile, the Huskies are ranked No.1 in scoring defense (46.9) and are forcing 20.0 turnovers per game.
