KenPom Prediction: Indiana 79 Rutgers 64 ; Rutgers is given a 9% chance to win.

Series History: Indiana leads the all-time series 4-0. This will be their fourth meeting as Big Ten foes, with Rutgers losing by single digits twice.

Don’t let Indiana’s record deceive you. They have top flight talent and even worse, should enter this game out for blood after losing four of their last five games. Rutgers needs to be ready to play from the opening whistle.

Expecting a win today is not realistic. However, if Rutgers can play with great defensive intensity and have a couple shots fall their way, they could absolutely shock the Hoosiers. They could also get run out of the gym and lose by 30 points.

Join us in the comment section during the game, as the quest for the program’s first B1G win of the season, as well as the first road win ever in conference play, continues. Could it end today? Hope for the best and expect the worst, so if they play well but still lose by a close margin it's something to be somewhat positive about. Remember the safe word is PROGRESS! Go RU!
