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.
Both of these men's basketball teams enter this Big Ten matchup on the heels of blowout losses, but the overall state of each program remains worlds apart.After suffering its worst home loss since 1961, Rutgers heads to Ohio State seeking improvement in Wednesday evening's conference road game at Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio.In the 6:30 p.m.
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.

But in the 15 minutes he had with his team in the locker room before it returned to finish its meeting with the No. 3 team in the country, head coach Eddie Jordan made sure the score was the last thing on his players’ minds.“At halftime, I mentioned to our team, ‘We’re not concerned about the score, we’re not concerned about individual stats.
