Welcome to episode No. 58 of The Scarlet Faithful podcast. This episode comes the day after Rutgers suffers another disappointing performance on Senior Night against Northwestern. For the first time in four seasons, the Scarlet Knights failed to win a must win game in the final week of the regular season.
“It’s the same thing. I told them that that season’s over,” said Rutgers head coach Steve Pikiell. “We won 18 games. I’m not apologizing. We’re 10-10 in the league. It’s a really good League. It’s a lot of wins. It’s a new season. We’re undefeated, it’s still a new season. You got to go to the tournament and play well and there’s a bit on the line, their automatic bid. So, you have three seasons, you’ve got the regular season just ended, and I’m proud 18 wins, matches last year’s win total for the year. These guys have done a fantastic job and like I said, this guy (Caleb McConnell) didn’t practice yesterday, and he played 38 minutes today. Our seniors really, they’ll play well, and they’ll bounce back. We’ve been here before.”
With its NCAA Tournament hopes on the ropes, I wanted to run through the state of things. Rutgers heads into the postseason after losing six of eight games. In addition, a quick look at the rematch with Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament.
