Rutgers hoops is off to a roaring 6-0 start with the latest win coming in an upset of Illinois over the weekend.

The win pushed the Scarlet Knights to 2-0 in the conference, already one of the best starts ever for Rutgers in basketball. Ron Harper Jr. continues to be a star for the team as Rutgers climbed eight spots to No. 11 on the latest AP Top 25.

Here is where B1G teams landed on the latest poll:

  • No. 4 – Iowa
  • No. 9 – Wisconsin
  • No. 11 – Rutgers
  • No. 12 – Michigan State
  • No. 18 – Illinois
  • No. 19 – Michigan
  • No. 23 – Ohio State

Michigan State slid down following a surprising and disastrous upset loss to Northwestern over the weekend. In that game, the Spartans looked completely out of sorts with a poor shooting night and equally poor defense against Boo Buie and the Wildcats.

Illinois continued its slide with a third loss on the season in the loss to Rutgers. The only saving grace at this point is that all three losses came to teams currently ranked inside the top 14. Hopefully the Illini can turn it around under Brad Underwood in conference play.
