Rutgers athletics finding success in February

Over the last few weeks, Rutgers sports fans have had plenty to celebrate. The Lacrosse season is in full swing and after a disappointing January, men’s basketball looks like a different team. So far in February, that trio has posted a 6-0 record.

However, they are not the only teams that have had success. Despite dropping their last three matches, wrestling is off to a 10-4 start. They have also been very good on the road, with a 5-1 record compared to a 4-3 mark at home. Despite their struggle at Jersey Mike’s Arena, fans have been out in full force.


However, the fun is far from over. In the second full week of February, wrestling is set to take on the best team in the country in Penn State on February 12. Men’s basketball will put their three-game winning streak on the line on February 15. Those matchups should provide plenty of fireworks for fans in Piscataway.
