Piscataway, N.J. - Rutgers Men’s Basketball hosts Caldwell College in an exhibition game this Friday (Nov. 1) at 7:30 p.m. at the RAC. Admission and parking is free for the contest, which provides fans their initial opportunity to see first-year head coach Eddie Jordan and the 2013-14 Scarlet Knights in action.
Jordan enters the season with seven returning letterwinners and five scholarship newcomers on the roster. Returning starters Myles Mack (Paterson, N.J.) and Jerome Seagears (Silver Spring, Md.), along with junior college transfer D’Von Campbell (Arlington, Texas) will play prominent roles at the guard positions.
On the wing, Rutgers returns junior Malick Kone (Conakry, Guinea) and welcomes junior college transfer Craig Brown (Miami, Fla.), Iowa State sophomore transfer Kerwin Okoro (Bronx, N.Y.) and Pittsburgh senior transfer J.J. Moore (Brentwood, N.Y.).
The Rutgers frontcourt features returning letterwinners Kadeem Jack (Queens, N.Y.), Wally Judge (Washington, D.C.) and Greg Lewis (Randallstown, Md.).
A 2012-13 All-Metropolitan selection, Mack led the Big East in free throw percentage (.882) and 3-point field goal percentage (.462), while placing seventh in steals (1.81) and 10th in field goal percentage (.480).
Jack and Seagears return after earning Big East All-Academic honors last season. Jack concluded the year by shooting 70 percent in the Big East Championship, while Seagears ranked fifth in the BIG EAST in 3-point FG percentage (.417) in conference games.
Judge is the lone returning senior on the roster. A strong, physical presence, he played in all 31 games (30 starts) last season and shot a team-best 52.6 (91-173) percent.
