StatSheet is now projecting Rutgers will get to the NIT as a six seed, provided they finish with a winning record. The Scarlet Knights are ranked #119 in the StatSheet StatRank, and their NIT bid will hang on their 15-15 overall record and 5-13 record in the Big East.
During the last four games, Rutgers chalked up wins against DePaul and Seton Hall but also took on losses against AP #12 Marquette and AP #5 Georgetown.
Rutgers struggles against strong competition, with a 3-13 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes a 1-10 record against the RPI Top 50 and a 1-6 record against AP ranked teams. While the Scarlet Knights have a single quality win against AP #17 Pittsburgh, they're also weighed down by two bad losses including RPI #194 DePaul and RPI #288 St. Peter's.
