Mike Rice Eager to Return as Rutgers Faces Syracuse
By MATT SUGAMPISCATAWAY – When Rutgers tips off against Syracuse on Wednesday night, Mike Rice is going to be pacing the sidelines for the first time in three weeks after serving his three game suspension.
“It’s going to be fun,” Rice said. “It will be interesting to see what’s taking place with Jim Boeheim’s chase for 903, it’s going to be interesting because I miss it so much and so I’m not going to take it for granted.”
