It will be just a short time until the Rutgers Women’s Basketball team hits the floor at the RAC. And, as always, the Cagers will be there to cheer on our favorite team – at home AND on the road. You can sign up now by filling out the new Cagers Club Membership Application. Don't forget to mark your calendar for Saturday, October 28, when season ticket holders are invited to an open practice from 10 AM - 11:30 at the RAC.
Good news for all fans is that for the 2017-18 season, Rutgers has lowered its ticket prices for the best seats in the house. In addition, all season ticket holders will park for FREE this year. Some pretty exciting basketball is available for a better price, so take advantage and order your tickets!
The schedule is available on the Scarlet Knights website. After three games on the road, RU will return home for its first game at the RAC on Sunday, November 19, against Wake Forest. If you can't wait that long, come and join us on "The Rolling RAC" on November 13 when RU travels to Philsadelphia to play Temple. Fill out the form and sign up today. Remember, Cagers members get a discount on this trip!
The team travels to Fort Myers, Florida for Thanksgiving and the Gulf Coast Showcase, where the first match-up pits RU against the defending National Champions, the University of South Carolina. A familiar face will be on the sidelines, as former RUWBB Associate Head Coach Jolette Law joins Dawn Staley’s staff. Several of the Cagers have already made their plans to travel to Florida and cheer on our Scarlet Knights. Check our News Section for more details.
While you are checking out the schedule, notice a few things:
1. There is a stretch of 8 home games in a row, from Thursday, November 30, through Thursday, December 28th. The team should be well rested, sleeping in their own beds and going home for Christmas.
2. There are a few "revenge" games on the schedule, with Rutgers looking to avenge losses last year to Wake Forest, Princeton and Houston -- all with home court advantage this time around!
3. RU has home and away match-ups with Penn State and perennial power Maryland on the Big 10 schedule.
4. There are a total of 9, count 'em, 9, weekend home games this season.
Check the full roster for this year’s squad. We are excited to see “Los Rojos,” the transfers (plus medical redshirt senior guard Tyler Scaife) hit the floor after sitting out a season and watching from the bench. With 14 active players, there is plenty of depth this season.
The Cagers will be announcing plans for our pre-game “Huddles” as well as trips on the “Rolling RAC,” so check back here and look for more information from Cagers President Kathy Duff as things are firmed up. And we promise shots of the players in action as the season progresses.
The team reminds us how much they appreciate their fans and feel energized by our support. So let’s get behind them again this year, which begins with much promise and hope. Let’s go, RU!
We also want to point out two important notes for Cagers. One is the importance of adherence to all NCAA rules related to Compliance. To learn more, please visit this link on the Rutgers site. The Cagers have also instituted a Code of Ethics to make sure our fans behave appropriately at all times and do not interfere with the team, the staff or the compliance rules.
The Cagers Club officers for this season continue. They are President Kathy Duff, Vice President Bob Manfre, Corresponding Secretary Nancy Foulks, Recording Secretary Janice Cancro and Treasurer Sharon Kosmo. Terms for officers run for two years, from July 1 to June 30.
