Rutgers Game Time Change

Moved from 7:30pm to 3pm for Bowl Game

PISCATAWAY--The Rider University men's basketball game at Rutgers Friday, December 28 will now tip-off at 3 p.m. Originally slated for 7:30 p.m., the contest has been moved up to accommodate Rutgers fans' ability to view their football team compete in the 2012 Russell Athletic Bowl.

"We felt it was very important that our fans attending the basketball game also had the opportunity to watch the Russell Athletic Bowl against Virginia Tech," said Rutgers Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Tim Pernetti. "This is a significant day for Rutgers and we want all of our fans to enjoy it. Moving the basketball game involved logistical challenges, but it was the right decision for our fan base."

The 2012 Russell Athletic Bowl will kick-off at 5:30 p.m. on ESPN from the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla.

The match-up between Rutgers and Rider will be the 16th meeting since the series began in 1947.  Three of the games have gone overtime.

Rider defeated Rutgers 61-57 during the 2007-08 season but lost the last two meetings, 66-62 at the Sovereign Bank Arena during the 2008-09 season and in overtime (80-70) at the RAC in 2009-10, the last meeting.
