The Knights need to get back in the win column on Wednesday to avoid falling into a 1-3 conference hole. Despite being ranked in the AP poll, Rutgers currently sits at tenth in the Big Ten standings. After losing a close one to the Hawkeyes, RU hosts a Michigan team fresh off an upset versus then-24th ranked Michigan State. UM guard Katelynn Flaherty posted 21 points off the bench in the upset, including an impressive 5-9 from three point range. Three other Wolverine players scored in double figures. Michigan as a team is shooting very well from beyond the arc, ranking seventh in the country in three-point field goal percentage (38.8%).

For Rutgers, Kahleah Copper and Tyler Scaife boost an offense that comes in 31st overall in the country, while F Betnijah Laney looks to limit possessions for Michigan with her rebounding. Laney ranks fifth nationally in rebounds per game with 12.5, and added 13 in the loss to the Hawkeyes.
