How did the Rutgers Olympic sports do this past week?

Although February is in the rearview mirror, Rutgers athletics has continued to be a winning machine. Baseball and softball are off to impressive starts due to their potent offenses. So far, they have combined to post a 21-9 record before the start of conference play. However, they are not the only teams adding to the win column.

After a three-game skid, Rutgers men’s basketball ended February with an 82-52 win over Michigan. They ended the month strong due to the play of Clifford Omoruyi, who added 19 points to his resume.
