  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. (November 20, 2012) – The BIG EAST Conference named Rutgers senior linebacker Khaseem Greene (Elizabeth, N.J.) its Defensive Player of the Week on Monday for the second consecutive week, as he recorded 11 tackles and set career highs in tackles-for-loss (3.5) and sacks (2.0) in the 10-3 win at Cincinnati.

    Greene moved into sixth on the school’s career tackles list with 358. He surpassed Aaron Brady (1995-98), who had 354.

    The All-America candidate's outing against the Bearcats followed one of the best performances in league history. Against Army on Nov. 10, Greene recorded 22 tackles - the fifth-best single-game tackle total in BIG EAST history.

    The conference recognition is Greene's third overall for the 2012 season. The Scarlet Knight finished last season with BIG EAST Co-Defensive Player of the Year accolades.
