PISCATAWAY, N.J. (November 1, 2013) - Rutgers men’s basketball announced today that redshirt junior forward Kadeem Jack (Queens, N.Y.), redshirt sophomore forward Greg Lewis (Randallstown, Md.) and junior guard Myles Mack (Paterson, N.J.) will serve as team captains for the 2013-14 season.
“We are fortunate to have many good candidates for team captain on this roster,” said Rutgers head coach Eddie Jordan. “Kadeem, Greg and Myles earned these positions due to their positive attitudes and consistent work ethics, both on and off the floor. We know that they will do a tremendous job working with their teammates and coaches to keep moving the program forward.”
A 2012-13 All-Metropolitan selection, the sharp-shooting Mack is the team’s top perimeter scorer and can play both guard positions. He led the Big East in free throw percentage (.882) and 3-point field goal percentage (.462) last season, while placing seventh in steals (1.81) and 10th in field goal percentage (.480).
A cornerstone player with tremendous versatility and athleticism, Jack has worked exceptionally hard to improve his jump shot. A two-time Big East All-Academic selection, he concluded 2012-13 by shooting 70 percent in the Big East Championship.
A tough, physical big man who excels in the weight room and has persevered through injuries, Lewis was redshirted last season and makes his much-anticipated return to the floor in 2013-14.
