Rutgers women’s basketball records first win since December

On Saturday, Rutgers women’s basketball had a reason to celebrate for the first time in over a month. The Scarlet Knights ended their 12-game losing streak with a 71-70 over Nebraska in front of 5,831 fans at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

In a game full of fireworks, Kassondra Brown set the tone offensively for Rutgers with 21 points. She got help from Destiny Adams, who put 11 points on the board. The talented duo were the only two Rutgers players who scored more than 10 points.

Rutgers is now 7-17 on the season.

As Rutgers stunned the Cornhuskers, they were hard to stop from beyond the arc. They shot 46.7 percent from beyond three-point range. Nebraska only shot 26.9 percent and missed 19 of their 26 attempts.

 

Although Nebraska was hoping to start February with a win, there were a few positives for them to take from this game. Alexis Markowski continued to be a scoring machine by adding 13 points to her resume. The Lincoln native has scored at least 10 points in every game this season.

For Rutgers, Saturday’s win is significant for a variety of reasons. It marked their first conference and road win of the season. They also showed they could deal with adversity and matched Nebraska basket for basket.

After a brief two-day vacation, Rutgers will be back in action on Tuesday against Maryland.
