After losing their season opener to Princeton, Rutgers has now won three straight games. Georgetown drops to 1-2.
Omoruyi finished with eight points and six rebounds in 27 minutes played. He was 4-of-7 on shooting and had four blocks.
This was an important win for Rutgers, albeit against a rebuilding opponent. Georgetown, under head coach Ed Cooley, has pieced together some talented pieces and should be able to contend for the postseason this year. Getting a win against the Hoyas is a good resume builder for Rutgers as well as a confidence booster.
