Rutgers men’s basketball will open the 2023-2024 season against a familiar foe on Monday, November 6. After a decade long break, the Scarlet Knights will play Princeton on the hardwood. It will be the 121st meeting in the series history, the most RU has played any opponent. The series began in 1917 and the Tigers hold a 75-45 series lead.
I’m running a promotional giveaway for two tickets to Monday’s game at Cure Arena. Details in this tweet:

Growing up in New Jersey near Princeton and my father working at Rutgers, this game means something special to me. I also know this rivalry is special to many fans on both side for many different reasons. As for the state, this game is great to promote basketball in a positive way.
Hopefully, this game is the start of an annual matchup between Rutgers and Princeton. Regardless, Monday’s game should be a tremendous atmosphere and test for both programs.
Listen and watch below to episode No. 200 of The Scarlet Faithful podcast. I discuss some personal memories, discuss the importance of this game for both teams, a shift in the Steve Pikiell era and more. Thank you to all who have followed the podcast over the past year plus.
