Game 14 recap & four thoughts

Game Preview

Rutgers has never won two Big Ten regular season games in a row but that could all change today. It won’t be easy against Minnesota on the road, especially without leading scorer and rebounder Eugene Omoruyi. However, Wednesday’s upset victory over Ohio State showed Rutgers they can win playing a different style than they have most of the season. Attacking the rim and looking to run in transition were led to an improved offense and hopefully they look to do the same in this game.
