Rice held a walk-through session with his team Saturday. He was suspended without pay and fined $50,000 on Dec. 13 for a violation of athletic department policy.

Rice says: “I may not be perfect, but I know I’m going to change and improve.”

Rutgers (9-2) went 3-0 under associate head coach David Cox, capped by a 68-56 win over Rider on Friday. Rice will be back on the bench Wednesday when Rutgers opens Big East Conference play at No. 9 Syracuse.

Rice is in his third season at Rutgers after coming over from Robert Morris, where he led the school to two straight NCAA tournaments in 2009 and 2010.
