signs high-scoring guard
The Rutgers men's basketball
team added another player to its 2003-2004 roster yesterday, as it announced
the signing of 6-foot-3, 175-pound guard Quincy Douby.
Scoring over 60 points twice, the Brooklyn native was the top scorer for the
New York City Public School League last season, averaging 35.6 points per
game. Hitting 18 three-pointers in one game, Douby will be a weapon from behind
the arc, as he also recorded 43 trifectas over a three game span.

The oral commitment came,
but so did the stories that New York schoolboy basketball star Quincy Douby
wasn't for real.
First, there was word other schools were laughing off his choice of Rutgers
and still recruiting him. Then his decision to take a second visit to Piscataway
created a mini-uproar and fears that he was having doubts.
But Monday, Rutgers officially announced it had received Douby's national
letter of intent - signed and sealed.
lands N.Y. sensation
The Rutgers women's basketball
team will try to rebound from a disappointing 68-64 road loss to the University
of Virginia last Friday night when it travels to Philadelphia tonight to take
on the Temple Owls in a non-conference matchup in the Liacouras Center.
Despite a strong first half in which they went into the locker room with a
35-27 lead, the Scarlet Knights (3-2), got out-muscled inside in the second
half by the Cavaliers, who cashed in on late free throw opportunities to hold
on for the win. Virginia began the second half with 16-2 run, which served
to blow the Knights out of the gate.
Knights venture to Temple
This is the final week
of classes before Christmas break at Rutgers and the women's basketball team
- like all other students - is exhausted.
"I can see their eyes are red," Rutgers coach C. Vivian Stringer
said Monday at her weekly press conference. "They're exhausted, they're
Not exactly the best frame of mind in which to play a critical early season
basketball game, but the schedule says the Scarlet Knights must. After losing
at Virginia, 68-64, on Friday, Rutgers (3-2) travels to Temple (4-2) for today's

Paulsboro High football
coach Glenn Howard, his team's latest championship a foregone conclusion,
heard a familiar refrain from his assistants yesterday during the second half
of the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 1 final:
"Give it to Isaac, Coach. He only needs one more touchdown."
And so, on a day when four-foot snow banks surrounded the stadium that has
become a house of horrors for Paulsboro opponents, Howard obliged. He called
Isaac Redman's number often, and the fleet and sturdy senior running back
put the finishing touches on a season for the ages.
