PISCATAWAY, N.J. (October 18, 2013) – Alexi Lalas will join fellow Rutgers soccer great Carli Lloyd on men’s basketball autograph night, to be held Nov. 14 when the Scarlet Knights host Yale at The RAC. The autograph session will take place from 6:15-7:15 p.m., before the game tips-off at 7:30 p.m.
A member of the United States Men's National Team between 1991 and 1998, Lalas was inducted into the Rutgers Athletics Hall of Fame in 1998. He is the only player in the history of the soccer program to earn three All-America honors, and he was the 1991 Consensus National Player of the Year as winner of the Hermann Award and the Missouri Athletic Club Trophy. A three-time captain, he led Rutgers to three NCAA Tournaments and two final four appearances (1989, 1990). After missing 10 games due to a ruptured appendix in 1990, he recovered to lead the Scarlet all the way to the 1990 National Championship game.
An Olympic gold medalist and member of the United States Women's National Team since 2005, Lloyd is the only Scarlet Knight to earn First-Team All-Big East Honors four times (2001-2004). She is Rutgers’ all-time leader in points (117) and goals (50) and was named the 2001 Big East Rookie of the Year, the first Rutgers player to earn that honor, and the 2004 Big East Midfielder of the Year. Lloyd was also a three-time NSCAA All-American and a semifinalist for the Hermann Trophy. She was inducted into the Rutgers University Hall of Distinguished Alumni this past January.
