Rutgers for 2nd straight win over ranked opponent

Rutgers for 2nd straight win over ranked opponent

The Wolverines did a better job distributing the ball, collecting 16 assists on the game to just one for Rutgers. The Huskers (14-6, 5-2 Big Ten) knocked off No. 20 Iowa last week.

Mississippi State (20-0, 6-0 SEC) also got off to a 20-0 start last season and went on to finish 34-5 with a loss to SC in the NCAA Tournament final. Rutgers slipped to 17-5 overall and 5-3 in the Big Ten with its second straight loss since being mentioned as the No. 15 seed in the first NCAA Tournament Seed Selection announcement on Thursday.

Hannah Whitish and Nicea Eliely each added nine points for the Huskers, and Maddie Simon scored seven.

The No. 23 Wolverines were the talk of the Big Ten and possibly the entire nation last Saturday after a brilliant performance at archrival Michigan State.

Against Rutgers, Michigan (17-5, 6-3) was in control throughout and steadily built a sizeable lead, ultimately going up by 15 at 54-39 with 5:41 remaining on a 3-pointer by Wagner and then by 17 with under a minute left. Matthews leads MI in scoring with 14.9 points per game while Wagner leads the team in rebounding with 7.2 rebounds per game and Zavier Simpson leads the team in assists with 3.5 helpers per game this season. Simon added a jumper before Bria Stallworth scored on a strong layup as the shot clock expired with 1:24 left in the quarter. Freeman forced a lot of shots in the paint, true freshman guard Geo Baker didn't look like he was getting his feet set for any of his three-pointers and Corey Sanders found himself in foul trouble and wasn't looking to pass. The Scarlet Knights are averaging 14 offensive rebounds per game and have a turnover margin of 4.6, which is No. 10 in the nation. Abdur-Rahkman, who missed five of six shots in the first half, added nine points. No other Scarlet Knight hit more than two shots.

MI scored 13 consecutive points with 7:13 left in the 1st Half, making the game 18-10 in favor of MI. Miami led the entire second half but struggled to put the Wolfpack away in a game that came down to the final seconds.

The Scarlet Knights (12-9, 2-6 Big Ten) return to action Wednesday, when they host Nebraska for a 7 p.m. tipoff at the Rutgers Athletic Center in Piscataway.
