EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Geo Baker considers a home loss to Northwestern last month one of the low points of Rutgers' season.
The sophomore guard was determined to make the rematch on Wednesday night a highlight.
Baker and Montez Mathis each had 12 points, Eugene Omoruyi added 11 and Rutgers rallied in the second half and then hung on for a 59-56 victory over Northwestern.
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Tim Miles didn't divulge his game plan for defending Montez Mathis. Asked what the game plan was, and how Mathis handled it, the Nebraska coach didn't feel the need to share his faulty formula.
"He did just fine," Miles said. "So apparently my game plan didn't matter."
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Carsen Edwards continues to cause fits for opponents and few have found a way to contain him.
The junior guard scored 13 of his 19 points in the first half, and finished with six assists and five rebounds to lead Purdue to an 89-54 win over Rutgers on Tuesday night.
"He's a tough stop," Rutgers coach Steve Pikiell said. "I actually watched all the tapes and no one has been able to stop him. He plays with tremendous confidence and can make tough shots."
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Rutgers may not be the doormat of the Big Ten Conference anymore.
Montez Mathis hit two contested layups and Geo Baker nailed a jumper with 10.3 seconds to play as the scrappy Scarlet Knights posted their biggest conference win under coach Steve Pikiell, a 64-61 decision over No. 16 Ohio State on Wednesday.
