Welcome to the first ever edition of the Rutgers Roundup, a weekly segment in which we reflect on what happened surrounding Scarlet Knights athletics over the past seven days before acknowledging top performances during the span with our Targum awards.
As everyone flips their calendars to March, sports fans will turn their attention to college basketball for arguably the greatest post-season competition — the NCAA college basketball tournament, a competition so unpredictable that it’s become known as March Madness. So in the spirit of a great American tradition, The Daily Targum is introducing the biggest food contest Rutgers University and its local restaurant scene has ever seen: March Munchies. The tournament's name is a tip of the hat to its basketball doppelgänger and is a 32-restaurant, single-elimination tournament — half the amount of participants as the NCAA tournament but with all of the excitement. The court begins at the border of the Douglass and College Avenue campus and stretches deep into the depths of Easton Avenue.
More than a month has passed since the Rutgers men’s basketball team faced Maryland in College Park. In between that meeting and Tuesday’s contest between the sides held at the Rutgers Athletic Center, the Scarlet Knights continued to struggle, with their first ever Big Ten road win the only victory in the eight games since last facing the Terrapins.As for the visitors, they’ve seen the momentum of a program-record 20-2 start come to a screeching halt, dropping three straight and 5 of their last 7 games. But even despite the change in trajectory for the Terrapins from the two games, it felt like nothing had changed on Tuesday night.The Knights hung on tight in the first half just as they did in College Park, entering the locker room down just four despite shooting 10 percent worse than the Terps and losing the rebounding battle.And just as it went in College Park, Maryland opened a big lead in the second half, bursting out of the gates with a 10-2 run, blowing up its lead to as much as 22 en route to handily defeating Rutgers 79-59 in the penultimate game of the regular season.“We didn’t play the way I wanted to play today,” said head coach Steve Pikiell.
The Scarlet Knight sat on top of its horse at the entrance of the tunnel at the edge of the field at High Point Solutions Stadium, staring at the thousands of fans filing into their seats for a primetime matchup between the Rutgers football team and visiting Penn State.It was "Senior Night," a tradition held in the final home game of the season to honor the players before their last battle on their home turf.

The key to the Rutgers men’s basketball team’s contest against No. 16 Purdue Tuesday night was located precisely where they’ve thrived in for most of the season — inside the paint.But more importantly than scoring in the paint, where they produce a Division I high 62.4 percent of their points, the Scarlet Knights needed to keep the Boilermakers’ towering tandem of Caleb Swanigan and Isaac Haas off the glass on both ends of the floor.And though the Knights are no pushovers on the boards, ranking among the best in the nation in offensive rebounding percentage, they were no match for the top defensive rebounding team in the Big Ten.If Minnesota dominated the Knights inside on Saturday when it outrebounded them by a season-high 6 and outscored them in the paint by 8, Purdue manhandled its visitors.The Boilermakers obliterated Rutgers in the battle of the boards by 17 (45-28) and outscored the Knights by 24 (44-18) inside the painted area, withstanding a blazing first half from deep from Rutgers en route to a comfortable 74-55 win in West Lafayette.“We’ve just going to have to rebound better against a team like that.
