Rutgers sits alone in third place after demolishing Purdue on Saturday. The race for a Big Ten top seed continues Tuesday night as the Illinois Fighting Illini visit Piscataway for a late season conference game. The Illini are wandering aimlessly in the bottom half of the B1G standings, so Coach Stringer has a good opportunity to secure another win in-conference.

#19 Rutgers Scarlet Knights (19-6, 10-4) vs. Illinois Fighting Illini (13-13, 4-10)

Rutgers won 78-49 against the Boilermakers largely due to a strong performance inside the paint - 50 points scored inside the paint to be precise. Four Knights scored in double-digits, and they'll look to have a strong game against another struggling team. Illinois' strength is defending the three-pointer, something that is a non-factor against a Rutgers squad that has attempted the fewest in the conference.
