Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Rutgers lost to Michigan on Saturday, 69–63, at Madison Square Garden.
It shot .325 from the field and .250 from beyond the arc. Michigan’s numbers were much better but fifteen turnovers to Rutgers’ nine kept it close.
That’s this year’s Rutgers team — tough but with limited offensive firepower. It might not sound like a compliment but it is. Illinois’ and Michigan State’s losses mean the Scarlet Knights, which have scrapped the clawed for everything they have earned this season, remain just a loss back behind the Big Ten leaders.
Seven guys average at least 7.5 points per game, though none of them averages as many as a dozen. They all play defense. What else would you expect from a team led by Ron Harper Jr.?
Harper is one of the most unusual leading scorers in the country because he plays defense first. He isn’t a great shooter, either. But he’s unafraid to take open looks, plays hard and, in large part because of that, stays on the floor.
In the Big Ten, a losing streak is ever around the corner but, being cautiously optimistic, this team will make the NCAA Tournament and it won’t be an easy out.
Maryland had the weekend off after beating Iowa by ten points at home on Thursday. So the Terps kicked up their feet and watched Michigan State and Illinois lose.
As a result, they are just a win away from making it a three-way tie at the top, which can’t actually happen on Tuesday because Illinois is off with a game later in the week and Michigan State hosts Penn State.
That’s nothing but posturing now. Maryland has won four in a row, though, and hasn’t lost a game at home all season.
The Terps are, unlike Rutgers, raw power. Their first five guys were all ranked in the top 100 as incoming freshman, whereas none were from Rutgers’ roster.
Their offense has been nothing if not disappointing, though. Maryland is shooting .416 from the field and .393 in conference play. Its defensive numbers aren’t great either.
It’s hard to argue with the results, though, and in that way, Maryland and Rutgers aren’t that different. They are both Big Ten prototypes: physical and gritty.

Free Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs. Maryland Terrapins NCAAB Prediction: Maryland by a couple possessions.
This matchup looks straightforward enough. Neither team is going to light up the other but Maryland’s physical advantages could mean the difference between two teams that can grind it out with the best of them. Good chance this one winds up going Maryland’s way in merciless fashion.
