My Player of the Game Corey Sanders    
Overall Game Analysis This was a great effort from Rutgers. In the first half, it looked like Purdue was on the way to a blowout as they racked up a double digit lead. But the Scarlet Knights came out strong in the second half and gave the Boilermakers a run right until the end. This was a 6-point or less game for much of the second half. Corey Sanders was excellent in this one and kept Rutgers in the game from both ends of the court. This was a gutsy effort all around.

Gio Baker PG  A-  Good poise and some clutch shots!
