Everyone has to be excited about the SHU vs RU match-up this week. If people are smart they will order tickets today before the scalpers get them in their hands. This game could be huge in the state of NJ. Like NC vs Duke although those teams are really more talented. But this could be the start. Over the coffee dispenser and water faucet at companies all over NJ, the talk will be SHU vs RU.
Not only are these two teams competing for a "w", they are also competing for recruits. They are competing for the right to say who beat who this season. They are competing about basketball atmosphere. RU Fans need to do all they can to fill the RAC. SHU Fans need to do all that is possible to obtain tickets and prove SHU fans support their team.
Yes this is bigger than many realize. A RU Victory makes this season a special one for another day. A SHU Victory solidifies the Pirates as the best D1 Team in the tri-state area.
Maybe I better get to the phone to order my ticket right now. It could be a special day to say the least!!!
