Welcome to episode No. 43 of The Scarlet Faithful podcast. Less than 24 hours removed from the biggest road win in program history, there is plenty more to cover. To help dissect the 65-64 win for Rutgers over No. 1 Purdue, longtime fan, season ticket holder and published author Dave White joins as a guest.

It was an epic performance for Rutgers who led by as many as 13 points early in the second half. The Boilermakers came all the way back before taking the lead by the score of 64-62 with 30 seconds left in the game. Paul Mulcahy kept RU in the game down the stretch. An

Topics include the experience of watching the win, late game decisions, Steve Pikiell’s play calling out of timeouts, Cam Spencer emerging, how far the program has come under Pikiell since the 50 point loss to Purdue seven years ago, the road ahead the rest of this season and more.

Thanks to Dave for joining this episode and giving his insight on the Rutgers men’s basketball program. And thank you for listening or watching.
