Scarlet Knights Go For Second Win over Badgers

About two weeks ago, the Badgers were unable to avoid a 73-65 loss to the Scarlet Knights, which is why Rutgers is now welcoming Wisconsin with open arms as they seek their second consecutive win over the Badgers. 

However, this time Rutgers has a home-court advantage. Ron Harper Jr. continues to lead the team with 15.7 points per contest for the Scarlet Knights, while Clifford Omoruyi has added 7.8 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game.
