After finally winning their first conference game in double overtime against Northwestern, Maryland returns to College Park to host Rutgers on Saturday afternoon. The Scarlet Knights currently hold a record of 9-6 (3-2), with conference victories over Michigan, Nebraska, and Purdue, and losses to Illinois and Penn State. Before losing to the Nittany Lions on Tuesday night they'd won four games in a row. Steve Pikiell's squad has yet to record a win on the road this season.
While their defense has been decent, Rutgers' biggest problems have been with their offense. They're shooting 43% from the field, 33% from beyond the arc, and 67% at the free throw line. Senior forward Ron Harper, Jr. leads the team with 16 points per game, and also averages 7 rebounds.KenPom Rankings
