The future of Rutgers basketball will be on display tonight.
Mike Rosario of St. Anthony — Fred Hill’s star recruit — will be showcased in the McDonald’s All-American Game at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee. And C. Vivian Stringer’s dream class of five All-Americans will be on display in the girls game.
The girls game will be shown live on ESPNU at 7 p.m. The boys game will be shown live on ESPN at 9:30 p.m.
“I’m very excited,” Rosario said. “It was just something that I dreamed about since I was a kid. I looked at TV and went, ‘Wow, those guys are going to be labeled as McDonald’s All-Americans.’
