Rutgers coach Steve Pikiell shows off ball-handling skills

  Steve Pikiell left Stony Brook to accept Rutgers' head coaching position this March.

It’s been a while since Steve Pikiell ran the floor as a two-year captain and point guard for UConn from 1987-1991.

But it appears the 48-year-old coach still has handles.

Pikiell, who led Stony Brook to the program’s first-ever NCAA tournament berth last year, was named head coach of Rutgers this past March. He’s used this summer to get familiarized with the Scarlet Knights community by holding a series of basketball camps, including one this past week.

In this most recent session, Pikiell shows campers the variety of moves one can make when dribbling, as he skillfully bounces a ball in each hand and goes behind the back and through his legs with ease.

As for the Twitter video’s caption, putting NBA star point guards and top ball handlers Stephen Curry and Kyrie Irving on watch, let’s check the tape:

Hopefully the campers paid attention.
