It’s a Big Ten match up on Tuesday night in New Jersey.
The Maryland Terrapins travel to take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.
This is the second match up of the year between the two teams. Maryland won the first match up 67-55.
If you look at the Maryland Terrapins right now they look like they have been having a good season. They come into this game with a record of 22-7 and sit in 3rd place in the Big Ten Conference, but those numbers don’t tell the whole story.
The Terrapins have lost three games in a row and have lost five of their last seven. The problems for the Terrapins on this three game losing streak has been on the defensive side of the ball. In two of the three games they have given up more then 83 points. In the other game they only scored 60 points.
The Terrapins need to win this game against Rutgers. If they don’t it will really be panic mode in College Park Maryland.
This game is also important for the Big Ten Standings. There are four teams tied for third place in the Big Ten right now. The top four teams get a first round bye in the Big Ten Tournament so the Terrapins really need to pull out a win in this game, because their next game against the Spartans is going to be really tough.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The Rutgers Scarlet Knights are still probably still a few years away from really competing in the Big Ten, but they made some big strides this year.
The Scarlet Knights come into this game with a record of 13-16 and sit in 14th place in the Big Ten. They come into this game having lost five games in a row. Their last win was February 4th against the Penn State Nittany Lions.
The Scarlet Knights have two problems this year that have kept them from taking the next step forward. They have problem scoring on the offensive end and they really struggle at the free throw line.
Rutgers only averages 65.3 points per game, which is not a number that will win many games in the Big Ten conference. From the free throw line they only 61.8 percent from the line. If they would have made a few more free throws some of those close games might have been won and we could be talking about a Rutgers team with a few more wins in conference play.
