It has been a frustrating and painful soccer season at Rutgers for Kori Hunter (Atholton) and Hamisi Amani-Dove (Wilde Lake).Hunter, an Academic All-America and the first-team Mid-Atlantic Region goalie last year, hasn't played this season because of fractured legs. That's plural -- legs.He played all last season with stress fractures in both legs and didn't tell anyone, thinking it was shin splints. Then, in an off-season pickup basketball game, Hunter broke his right leg. A redshirt junior, he hopes to rejoin the team before the season ends.

TAMPA, Fla. - The numbers were downright gaudy. Ike Hilliard - 10 catches for 155 yards, including touchdowns of 46 and 7 yards. Amani Toomer - six catches, 88 yards and another 7-yard score. Giants 41, Vikings 0. And off go the suddenly pass-happy Giants to Super Bowl XXXV. Yes, New York will need to stretch the field Sunday against a defense that hasn't yielded a 100-yard rusher all season. And, yes, Toomer and Hilliard have had success making big plays this postseason. But can they continue the trend against this defense?
