NU beat Rutgers 51-47 in an ugly 62 possession game today. The ‘Cats turned the ball over a lot, grabbed just three offensive rebounds, went over 10 minutes without scoring (from 10:45 to 0:30 in the second half NU was stuck on 44), and still won because Rutgers is really bad. The Scarlet Knights took bad shots, missed most of them, and horribly mismanaged the endgame. Take the win, and take a look at the ugly numbers. This does not give me confidence for NU’s chances in the next 5-6 games.
