Jim Boeheim will attempt to win his 903rd game as head coach of the Syracuse Orange tonight against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. That would move him past Bobby Knight into second place all-time. Let's check out the particulars about the game and how he can get there.

Rutgers Last Year: Rutgers finished 14-18 last season and 6-12 in the Big East. It's Rutgers, this is about right.

Rutgers Coach: Mike Rice (3rd season, 38-37). Like all Rutgers basketball coaches before him, Mike Rice is a lunatic. He's currently on an apology tour for his suspension over abusive behavior within the program. He'll be fired soon enough for one reason or another.

"Fear Me, I've Killed Hundreds Of Timelords": Eli Carter and Myles Mack are two guards who do almost all the score for Rutgers. They average a combined 31 PPG, which is roughly 40% of the overall scoring.

Fun Fact: Rutgers' golden era of dominance in this series was between 1974 and 1978 when they won four of five games against SU, including three in a row. Also, when Rutgers beats Syracuse, they do it in bunches. Anytime they've beaten SU in the last 20 years, they've done it two-times in a row.

Unexciting Reason To Watch: Rutgers basketball!

Exciting Reason To Watch: Jim Boeheim > Bobby Knight
