No Geo Baker for Rutgers tonight at No. 16 Ohio State. Did not make the trip due to flu-like symptoms.— Jerry Carino (@NJHoopsHaven) February 20, 2018
The task for the Rutgers men's basketball team was steep enough entering tonight's road tilt against the Buckeyes. Being without Baker completely changes things for the Rutgers offense, as the freshman guard is one of the top two ball handlers and shooters on the team. Defense, rebounding, as well as scoring off of turnovers and second chance points are even more important now.
