Michigan and Rutgers will play a crucial Big Ten game on Thursday night at 8:30 PM EST with both teams competing for a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Michigan currently has an overall record of 15-12 and a conference record of 9-7 and needs to finish the season strong to remain in contention for a tournament bid. If they can beat Rutgers, who are tied with them and two other teams for fourth place in the conference, it would be a significant quadrant one victory. In their last game, Michigan defeated Michigan State 84-72, with Dug McDaniel scoring a career-high 18 points.
Rutgers, on the other hand, has won 17 games this season and is ranked ninth in ESPN’s Bracketology, but their recent three-game losing streak has caused them to slip in the seedings. In their previous game against Wisconsin, Cam Spencer scored 22 points, and their defense limited Wisconsin to just 33% shooting, which ended their losing streak. With only five games left in the season, Rutgers cannot afford another losing streak.
