Team preview: Rutgers
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Rutgers coach Gary Waters knows that building a successful program can take time. It is something he experienced first hand in his first head-coaching job at Kent State.
Waters was 22-35 in his first two years guiding the Golden Flashes as he slowly put the pieces together. He was 70-25 in his last three years, with two NCAA Tournament appearances and one NIT bid.
