No. 25 Rutgers and Michigan faced off at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, in what probably felt like a home game for the New Jersey based Scarlet Knights, but that atmosphere wasn't enough, as the Wolverines walked away with a 69-63 win.
Despite it feeling like a home game, Rutgers might be thankful that it actually wasn't one -- considering the outcome. The Scarlet Knights are a perfect 15-0 at the RAC and are hoping to keep that record intact as they push for their first NCAA Tournament bid since 1991.
Saturday night's finish certainly did not help those chances -- Rutgers shot a poor 32.5 percent from the field and an even worse 25 percent from three-point range.
"We didn't play our best game today," head coach Steve Pikiell said. "We obviously have to shoot the ball better in a game like that against a really good team, and we didn't do that."
Rutgers can take some solace in the fact that they outrebounded Michigan 51-37 and had just 10 turnovers to their 16.
