COLLEGE PARK, Md. — As Maryland went to the line for a pair of free throws midway through the first half, Rasheed Sulaimon jogged back to the Terrapins’ bench on the opposite side of the court.Grinning ear to ear, the graduate transfer from Duke slapped hands with Terps head coach Mark Turgeon before trotting back over to the rest of his team on the second free throw attempt.No. 3 Maryland’s third Big Ten game of the season might as well have been a preseason exhibition with how it strut around on its home floor at the Xfinity Center, handing the visiting Rutgers men’s basketball team an 88-63 drubbing Wednesday night in College Park.“We were depleted because of injuries — undersized, but our spirit was 100 percent and our competitive nature was 100 percent,” said head coach Eddie Jordan.
The past week for the Rutgers men's basketball team has been one big headache.As if entering hostile territory for Wednesday night's 7 p.m.
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.

PISCATAWAY — Trailing by double digits for the second time of the afternoon, the Rutgers men’s basketball team found itself in an identical situation.Earlier in the first half, the Scarlet Knights used a surprising surge in the final two minutes before the half, entering the locker room on a 9-0 run to turn the tides of what was once a 12-point deficit against Indiana into a 34-34 deadlock.
When the Rutgers men’s basketball team gathered with local reporters at Media Day on Oct. 27, optimism was high and goals were ambitious. While head coach Eddie Jordan refused to make any specific predictions beyond what his team would work on at practice that day, some of his players — namely sophomore forward D.J.
PISCATAWAY — Music blared from the speakers at the Rutgers Athletic Center as tip-off between the Rutgers men’s basketball team and UMass-Lowell quickly approached. Trading in the hair tie he’s rocked a few times this season for a white headband, freshman point guard Corey Sanders was upbeat and loose, smiling and dancing in between his shots as he and his team warmed up for its last non-conference game.Sanders had reason to be in a good mood.
PISCATAWAY — Rather than pulling up for the 3-pointer from the wing as he had seemingly done so all night long, Omari Grier decided to float it up to Corey Sanders instead.“I missed Corey.
As much as Eddie Jordan enjoyed returning to the win column with the Rutgers men’s basketball team’s 72-64 come-from-behind victory over Fairleigh Dickinson last Wednesday, the third-year head coach’s postgame assessment of his inexperienced squad’s slow start was blunt.“A young team is gonna drive you nuts,” Jordan said.

When redshirt freshman forward Ibrahima Diallo injured his foot in practice Dec. 17, the Rutgers men’s basketball team’s already thin front court became even thinner. Diallo joined sophomore center Shaquille Doorson (foot) and junior forward Deshawn Freeman (knee) in the list of players head coach Eddie Jordan wouldn’t have at his disposal as the Scarlet Knights approach the end of their out-of-conference schedule.Facing a stretch of games with a depleted bench and limited options, Jordan immediately put freshman forward Jonathan Laurent to work on learning the power forward position and adapting to the college game at his normal position at small forward.“When Deshawn (Freeman) went down and when Ibrahima (Diallo) went down and when Shaq (Doorson) was already down, we put Jonathan (Laurent) at four immediately and maybe that’s why he’s a little bit going around in circles out there — not knowing where to go, how to respond, how to react to certain passes, certain play calls,” Jordan said.
PISCATAWAY — Lounging in the Rutgers men’s basketball team’s locker room in the bowels of the Louis Brown Athletic Center, Corey Sanders posted up in a leather stadium seat of the film room as reporters approached.But before anyone could utter a word, he took the floor.“First, we gotta take a Snapchat,” he said.

"'You gave great effort, we shared the ball, we tried to stay organized.'"For the third-year head coach, the unfavorable end result from his inexperienced team down to eight available scholarship players was a step up from the previous week's 83-49 pounding at George Washington.But now, with two more games remaining on the Scarlet Knights' non-conference slate, Jordan hopes they can end their current 2-game skid before the powers of the Big Ten present a bigger challenge starting with Indiana next Wednesday, Dec.
