Episode 26: Joel Salvi
EP. 26 The RAC Fan Favorite (Joel Salvi)
For Episode 26, The Scarlet Spotlight welcomes former Rutgers men's basketball sixth man Joel Salvi, from the Class of 2000. The Kevin Bannon era big man discusses his two years at RU, his relationship with Coach Bannon and some memories of his time in New Brunswick and Piscataway. Salvi tells stories of his college days, pro career in Italy and the hair that made him so famous at the Rutgers Athletic Center. Following the interview, Danny and Jon recap a busy start to March in Rutgers Athletics -- including RU women's hoops bowing out in the Big Ten semis, men's hoops' Big Ten Tournament draw, two Big Ten champs for wrestling and results from other Olympic Sports (lacrosse and softball). They also plug the upcoming interview with RU athletic director Pat Hobbs, which will be the first repeat guest in the podcast's one-year history.
