This was a great bounce back win for Rutgers. They held Eastern Michigan to only 4 points in the first half to tie an NCAA record. They really came out fast and played a solid game on both ends. Geo Baker looked great! He lead Rutgers with 20 pts, but was 6-8 from three point range - that is an excellent showing from him. As a whole, turnovers and FTs were lacking, but EMU was never a threat, so those will be covered up in the overall game highlights.

Only 62% from FT line. They only had 11 offensive rebounds too to go with 20 turnovers. So, a big win masks some important deficiencies. Also, too much of scoring was from Baker. In a game like this, would be good to see others step up.

Got a chance to mix in a lot of new players. Only 2 players played over 30 minutes
