The game was close at times, but in the end Rutgers was too much for the Lady Lions. After a nice in-conference tune-up, C. Vivian Stringer and the Knights must get ready for another huge B1G match as they host #8 Maryland, while the men's team travels to College Park tonight. It's the first game since Betnijah Laney was nationally recognized for her red-hot play from the last game against Penn State and Michigan. Her average of 19 points, 9.5 rebounds, five assists, and 3.5 steals over two games earned her player of the week honors from the Big Ten and the U.S. Basketball Writer's Association.

#24 Rutgers Scarlet Knights (12-4, 3-2) vs. #8 Maryland Terrapins (13-2, 4-0)

Thursday, January 15 - 9:00 PM

TV: Big Ten Network

Radio: 1450 WCTC

Coach Brenda Frese has a very strong program in College Park, as she won the 2006 National Championship and made a trip to last year's Final Four. The only two losses for Maryland this year are to a decent Washington State team at a neutral site and on the road against #2 Notre Dame. The Terps are in the top three of the B1G in several statistics, and lead the conference outright in scoring offense, scoring margin, rebounding, and field goal percentage. The Knights will need a better performance than their 20-point victory over Penn State to come out with a win tomorrow night.
