Rutgers hoops has their new man

Rutgers has chosen Steve Pikiell as their new head coach. Pikiell has roots in the famed UConn program, serving as an assistant to Jim Calhoun after playing point guard for the Huskies. Pikiell most recently took Stony Brook to their first NCAA Tournament appearance in school history and were rewarded with Kentucky. So after one game Pikiell was free to tell Rutgers yes. Johnny thinks this is a smart hire. Pikiell will come in already knowing how to do more with less at a small school like Stony Brook and he has a history as head man of turning programs around. Can he recruit and lift RU up in the B1G standings?

That's why they play the games.
