George Washington men's basketball will face its second Big East opponent of the 2012-13 non-conference schedule when it visits Rutgers at the RAC in Piscataway, N.J., on Tuesday, Dec. 11.
The Colonials will also travel to Big East foe Notre Dame during the 2012-13 out-of-conference slate on Wednesday, Nov. 21. Along with the Dec. 8 home game against Big 12 Conference member Kansas State, three of GW's four power conference opponents have been revealed.
Mike Rice has coached Rutgers to a 29-35 overall record the past two seasons after winning 73 games in three seasons at Robert Morris from 2007-10. The Scarlet Knights went 14-18, including 6-12 in Big East play, in 2011-12, but won 11 of their games at home inside the Louis Brown Athletic Center, also known as the RAC.
Rice returns four starters from last year's team, led by rising sophomore guard and returning leading scorer Eli Carter (13.8 ppg), and adds Kansas State transfer and Washington, D.C., native Wally Judge. Judge, who sat out the 2011-12 campaign at RU, was an honorable mention Washington Post All-Met selection at Bladensburg High School in 2007 before playing his final two scholastic seasons in Florida.
