Rutgers basketball has updated their upcoming schedule following their recent pause from basketball activities due to COVID-19. After cancelling their home game against Rider and postponing tonight’s game against Central Connecticut, the Scarlet Knights announced a couple changes to the remainder of their non-conference schedule.
The updated schedule now has their upcoming game against Maine pushed back a day to the 30th and a rescheduled home game against Central Connecticut on New Years Day. Rutgers will then start conference play on the fourth against Michigan.
Rutgers recently had an outbreak of COVID-19 in the locker room that forced the cancellation of their game against Rider and the postponement of their game against Central Connecticut. As of now the shuffling of their schedule should allow them to play their last two non-conference games and also be ready for the start of conference play.
The school also announced several changes to anyone attending indoor athletics events at Rutgers:
