Villanova-Rutgers Preview, Master Meets Apprentice

This is what failure looks like
Ask any Rutgers basketball fan and they'll tell you that the Fred Hill era has been a symphony of high hopes followed by epic failures.  Lauded for his recruiting ability while he was under Jay Wright at Villanova, Hill has brought in some solid recruiting classes but he has nothing to show for it as The Scarlet Knights are still at the bottom of the Big East.  Villanova will head to The RAC to face Rutgers on Wednesday night hoping to stay unbeaten in conference play and keep Rutgers winless.
Here's your rundown:

Villanova Wins If: They play better than awful
Villanova Loses If: They play terrible and Rutgers has some stroke of fabulous luck.  If Rutgers wins, it is nothing that Fred Hill did right.
National Update: With last night's loss by Texas, the only remaining undefeated team in the nation is Kentucky.  Who knows how many of their wins this season will be vacated by the NCAA though.
Scottie Watch: With 27 points against Georgetown, Scottie Reynolds brought his career scoring total to 1,948. That makes him 52 points from 2,000 in his career, 296 points from passing Kerry Kittles' Villanova career men's mark of 2,243 and 461 points away from passing Shelly Pennefather's overall school record of 2,408. Scottie is currently ninth all time in school history in scoring and needs only 19 points (his season average) to pass Randy Foye who is currently eighth with 1,966 career points.
