Ray Floriani dropped me a note this morning about the Rutgers-Marist game at the RAC last night. He wrote a few observations about the team and the game:

The Scarlet Knights were effective on defense as they tied the school record with 16 blocks. Hamady Ndaye led with 8 while freshman Greg Echenique was impressive with 6 (and 15 boards). Another frosh Mike Rosario led all scorers with 17 points. A natural scorer, Rosario played very well in the scheme of the Rutgers offense.
