  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. (July 29, 2012) – The Rutgers men’s lacrosse team was represented by 23 student-athletes on the BIG EAST All-Academic Team, the conference announced Friday. Head coach Brian Brecht’s squad tied for a school-best total of players with the Scarlet Knight women’s rowing team. A total of 243 Rutgers student-athletes were recognized by the league.
