Rutgers has won eight of its last nine games. The lone team to beat them? The Maryland Terrapins, who handed the Knights a home loss on January 15. Tuesday night, RU can get revenge and make a push for the number two seed in the Big Ten Tourney (current second-seed Iowa has #22 Nebraska, Ohio State, and Minnesota twice left on the schedule). Stringer's road record looks much better than her home record this year, but the teams played away from the RAC are noticeably easier in difficulty. Can she steal one in College Park?

#18 Rutgers Scarlet Knights (18-5, 9-3) @ #5 Maryland Terrapins (21-2, 12-0)

Rutgers can truly leave it all on the court for this game since the remaining schedule looks very easy down the Big Ten stretch. Of course, you never want to take any opponent too lightly, but a win at the Xfinity Center over the fifth-ranked Terps could be huge going into March.
The Terrapins have won 15 straight since their loss to Notre Dame during the ACC/B1G Challenge, and four Terps are now averaging double digits in scoring. Shatori Walker-Kimbrough leads Maryland with 13.9 points per game. In the last meeting, Rutgers tied the game with 17 minutes remaining, but UMd. proved too tough as the final score ended up at 71-59.
