What to Know

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights are 0-5 against the #9 Maryland Terrapins since January of 2016, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit tonight. The Scarlet Knights and the Terrapins will face off in a Big Ten battle at 7 p.m. ET at Xfinity Center. RU’s scoring has been on the decline the past three games, which is obviously a trend Maryland hopes will continue.

RU was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Saturday as they fell 69-63 to the Michigan Wolverines. The over/under? 132. So nice work, oddsmakers; you hit the bull’s eye here. Guard Caleb McConnell had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with ten points on 5-for-14 shooting in his 30 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, Maryland was able to grind out a solid victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes last week, winning 82-72. Maryland got double-digit scores from four players: guard Anthony Cowan Jr. (31), forward Jalen Smith (18), guard Aaron Wiggins (14), and guard Darryl Morsell (10). That’s four consecutive double-doubles for Smith.

RU is now 16-6 while Maryland sits at 17-4. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: The Scarlet Knights come into the contest boasting the 16th most blocked shots per game in college basketball at 4.7. But Maryland is even better: they enter the matchup with 4.8 blocked shots per game on average, good for 15th best in college basketball. Points in the paint might be hard to come by.
