Game 23 recap & four thoughts


Rutgers has a tremendous opportunity to win on the road against Northwestern tonight. After losing to the Wildcats by 9 points at the RAC in January, captain Eugene Omoruyi will be playing this time around. Since that first meeting, Rutgers has looked like the better team. A win would put them two games ahead of Northwestern in the win column and show progress after losing a heartbreaker last Saturday at Illinois.
