Rutgers suffered a bad shooting night and it resulted in a 70-57 loss on the road at Michigan State. It was a terrible shooting night in which RU shot just 34% from the field and only 2 of 17 from three-point range (12%). On the flip side, Michigan State made 12 of 22 from behind the arc for 55%. The 30 point differential from the three-point line was the difference in the game.
“The ball went in, it’s a game of runs, we expect them to run, they really got us in transition, and to tie the game back up,” head coach Steve Pikiell said after the game. “That’s how these games go. We had a run to begin the game. They had the next run. I really liked the fact we got into halftime, within a couple of possessions, but just we’re never able to get over the hill here and you know, it’s good team.”
Here are game highlights, Pikiell’s postgame presser, my rapid reaction video and the box score.
