Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Rutgers is in the midst of its third three-game losing streak this season.
The Scarlet Knights have lost at Michigan, versus Nebraska and at Penn State. They also lost twice in a row before snapping that skid and delving right into the current one so they’ve lost five of the last six, overall.
A loss in this game would throw Rutgers into last place in the Big Ten. Right now, it’s half a game ahead of Illinois and tied with Iowa.
Shooting has been a huge problem this season. Rutgers shoots 29 percent from three and just over 40 from the field. A lot of that has to do with lack of ball movement. Just 11 assists per game is a pathetic number.
It’s no surprise the Scarlet Knights are struggling in the Big Ten.
Illinois Fighting Illini
Illinois earned its first win of the conference season last week with a two-point win over Indiana that resulted in a push for those who bet it.
It was a tight, back-and-forth game the entire night and the Illini were down six at halftime but willed to a win in the second half.
Leron Black scored 19 and the Illinois defense held Indiana to five three-pointers and forced 18 turnovers in the win.
Now that Illinois has that first win in the conference, it will either loosen up in a negative or positive way. Because the team’s effort could go in either direction for this game, it’s a risky one to play.
