    The Scarlet Knights open their 2002-03 season at home on Nov. 18, hosting Columbia in the first round of the Pre-Season NIT in game that will be televised regionally (in New Jersey and New York City) on ESPN 2. The Scarlet Knights, under the direction of second-year coach Gary Waters, will now play a minimum of 27 regular season games this season, including 16 challenging BIG EAST Conference contests.
