Rutgers women’s basketball looks to extend winning streak to two games

After ending their season-high 12-game losing streak, Rutgers women’s basketball is back in action on Tuesday night. They will welcome Maryland to Jersey Mike’s Arena as they try to improve to 2-0 in February.

Rutgers is now 7-17 (1-10 Big Ten) this season.

Although this season has not gone as planned, Rutgers is in a good position to add to their win total. Maryland is 1-6 on the road this season and has struggled in conference play. However, there have been a few bright spots, such as Shyanne Sellers.

Through 21 games, the Aurora native is averaging a career-high 15.3 points a game. She has also made an impact on the boards with 5.7 rebounds a game. In order for Rutgers to add another win to their resume, they must limit Sellers impact.


For Maryland, their focus will be on keeping Destiny Adams in check. Adams has scored at least 10 points in her last five games, including 28 against Michigan State last Tuesday. When she is at her best, Rutgers offense is much more challenging to face.

While the Scarlet Knights have already started shifting their focus to next season, this is a winnable game. The Terrapins are 1-4 in their last five games and have yet to prove they can win on the road. Look for Rutgers to take advantage.
