The Big Ten Tournament gets underway on Wednesday night and the Rutgers Scarlet Knights will look to pull off the first round upset when they meet with the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Rutgers has fallen into the 14th seed and things have not been pretty for them this season.
However, one thing Rutgers does have going for them is a win in their regular season finale. Rutgers came from behind to knock off the Illinois Fighting Illini 62-59 on Senior Day, as the Scarlet Knights finished off Big Ten play 3-15.
Another silver lining this season has been the Scarlet Knights doubling their win total from last season.
Rutgers will look to play the inside game here and utilize Deshawn Freeman. The junior leads the team in rebounds with 7.9 per game and was a main reason for the Scarlet Knights being so high up the leaderboards when it comes to rebounding.
Rutgers led the conference with 40.4 rebounds per game and is third in the nation with 14.6 offensive rebounds per game.
G Corey Sanders leads the team with 13.0 points per game.
Ohio State Buckeyes
The Buckeyes had a chance to avoid playing in this game, but a loss in their final game of the regular season against Indiana at home dropped them into this spot.
Ohio State has had an up and down season, but has endured many more downs as of late. The Buckeyes are certainly in a position where they must win the Big Ten in order to find themselves in the NCAA Tournament.
It’s going to take 5 straight wins to do so and Ohio State will certainly need to start with buckling down defensively. Ohio State allowed Indiana to put up 96 points in the season finale, as they were beat in transition and failed to close out on shooters.
The Buckeyes took down Rutgers back on Feb 8th 70-64 as G Kam Williams finished with 23 points in the win.
Ohio State has to pick up the tempo here in this one, as it will certainly favor them given how slow this Rutgers team likes to play.
