Junior point guard Tyler Scaife takes flight to finish a beautiful finger roll for two of her 27 points in Rutgers 67-54 win over Illinois at the Louis Brown Athletic Center Wednesday night. Scaife is averaging 23.7 points per contest over her last three games.
Sitting in his seat on the podium in the interview room of the Rutgers Athletic Center, head coach Eddie Jordan pointed out the lack of effort that led to the Rutgers men’s basketball team's worst home loss since 1961.Jordan had planned a day off for his team following its matchup with Nebraska, but after the 90-56 drubbing, the third-year head coach made his players report to practice to “reiterate to them what effort and harmony is.”The message appeared to be heard loud and clear in the early going of the Scarlet Knights’ meeting with Ohio State on Wednesday evening.

After losing by 25 points to No. 3 Maryland on Wednesday, the Rutgers men’s basketball team’s Saturday evening meeting with Nebraska was a chance to recover from the blowout by earning its first Big Ten conference win of the season.Things didn’t exactly go according to plan.On an otherwise positive day for the Scarlet Knights — the 1976 team that reached the Final Four with head coach Eddie Jordan as its start was honored and, according to Rivals.com’s Stacey Davis, the Knights reportedly secured their first commit from the class of 2016, which Jordan confirmed in his post-game press conference — a 90-56 loss to a Nebraska team that shared an 0-3 start to conference play with its hosts put a dark cloud over the team.A 25-point loss to a Final Four candidate after being down by as much as 42 isn’t exactly a positive, but it was understandable given the talent at the disposal of Mark Turgeon and the Terrapins.There’s not as much room for explanation for a 34-point loss at home to a .500 team with a winless conference record.The conference contest against the Cornhuskers (9-8, 1-3) was the most-winnable game in the foreseeable future for Rutgers (6-11, 0-4).The Knights’ next four games include a trip to Columbus to face Ohio State, a pair of home contests with No. 19 Iowa and No. 20 Purdue and finally, a meeting with Michigan in Ann Arbor.The daunting schedule ahead does not instill fear in Jordan.

An 11-0 run to start the third quarter led to 36-point second half points, ultimately fueling a 20-point win.Senior wing Kahleah Copper had a complete game, leading all scorers with 19 points and a game-high 13 rebounds to give Rutgers its seventh consecutive win at the RAC.Copper scored 12 points in the second half in part because of the energy she was gaining from pulling down rebounds, she said.“Getting rebounds and just putbacks, that just gives me easy points,” she said.

As winnable as the game was in the early going against a beatable opponent in Wisconsin, the Rutgers men’s basketball team was unable to keep up over the span of its Big Ten road opener.Despite climbing back into the contest with a 10-3 run to open the first seven minutes of the second half, the Scarlet Knights couldn’t convert as the Badgers ran away down the stretch to avenge last year’s upset in Piscataway, 79-57.Rutgers (6-9, 0-2) dropped its second straight conference matchup, with a Big Ten losing streak dating all the way back to last year increasing to 17 games in a row after the latest casualty.Sophomore guard Mike Williams responded from a woeful 0-for-6 shooting performance earlier in the week where he was scoreless in the Knights’ loss to Indiana, rebounding for a team-high 20 points on a 7-for-11 mark from the field Saturday at the Kohl Center in Madison.But Rutgers had no answer for Wisconsin (9-6, 1-1) and its red-hot shooting.
