Whatever hope the Rutgers women’s basketball team had of salvaging a tumultuous regular season with an upset over No. 12 Ohio State was quickly diminished, as the Buckeyes (25-5, 15-1) dominated the Scarlet Knights (6-23, 3-13) in all facets of the game en route to a 73-45 victory at the Rutgers Athletic Center on Sunday.Ohio State used a dominating press to force 21 turnovers and completely erase any offensive tempo Rutgers hoped to gain.“We had about 10 seconds on the shot clock (by the time the offense was set up).

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Asked about what he has learned about his team a third into the Big Ten schedule and midway through his first season with the program, Rutgers head men’s basketball coach Steve Pikiell didn’t beat around the bush.“We’re consistently inconsistent,” he said, referencing the need for his players to play their best on a nightly basis.There is one thing the Scarlet Knights have done on a regular basis even before he arrived in Piscataway, but it's not positive — they haven't won a Big Ten road game since joining the conference three years ago.With former Major League baseball player Cal Ripken Jr., the king of sports consistency himself, watching from the front row of a sold-out Xfinity Center, Rutgers saw that streak extend to 23 games, suffering a 67-55 loss to No. 22 Maryland on Tuesday night.And it was lackluster free throw shooting, an issue the Knights have struggled with all season, that plagued them.

Steve Pikiell is not one to waver and never one to hit the panic button.Even in the midst of a seven-game losing streak, the head coach of the Rutgers men’s basketball team remained optimistic, kept to his belief that the team was getting better and that it was getting closer to where he wanted it to be with each passing day.All the Scarlet Knights needed to get their first Big Ten win of the season, he said, was to play a full 40 minutes.
The last time the Rutgers men’s basketball team faced Nebraska, it saw its both its season and an era come to an end.An 89-72 loss to the Cornhuskers in the first round of last season’s Big Ten Tournament marked the end of Eddie Jordan’s three-year return to Piscataway to serve as the head coach of his alma mater, where he shone as a leader in the Scarlet Knights’ greatest ever season in 1976.Fast forward 325 days, the Knights host Nebraska Saturday at noon in the same venue they suffered a 90-56 blowout to the Huskers a little more than a year ago in what was the fourth loss of a program-record 17 game skid.
