As good as the Boilers have been, they need to stay focused on closing out conference play strong and avoid the distraction of the much-deserved national attention.
They’ve found confidence in the matchup zone, and the seniors will play with a sense of urgency as the end of the road is nearing quickly.
If Murphy and Mason play with great energy and set the tone, that will give them a chance to win games down the stretch.
It’s hard to accept that with a guy like Ethan Happ on the floor, but the rest of the team (forget all of the injuries) is simply at the point of figuring out who they are and what they can do.
Every Big Ten coach I’ve talked to has been impressed with the job Steve Pikiell has done, but I feel like there’s much more to come for Rutgers in the future.
