What to Know

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights are 0-6 against the #9 Maryland Terrapins since January of 2016, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Tuesday. The Scarlet Knights and the Terrapins will face off in a Big Ten battle at 7 p.m. ET at Louis Brown Athletic Center. The matchup is expected to be a close one, with RU going off at just a 1-point favorite.

RU was just a bucket shy of a win last week and fell 65-64 to the Penn State Nittany Lions. Rutgers’ loss came about despite a quality game from guard Jacob Young, who had 13 points and five assists.

Meanwhile, the game between Maryland and the Michigan State Spartans this past Saturday was not a total blowout, but with Maryland falling 78-66 at home, it was darn close to turning into one. That makes it the first time this season Maryland has let down their home crowd. Guard Anthony Cowan Jr. had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with 13 points on 6-for-15 shooting and turning the ball over four times in his 36 minutes on the court.

The losses put RU at 18-11 and Maryland at 23-6. Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Scarlet Knights have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 38.50%, which places them ninth in college basketball. Maryland is not quite as good, but they are no chumps, either: they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 39.40%, which places them 17th in college basketball. We’ll find out if either of these strengths ends up making the difference in the contest.
