Rutgers finally has its first win in the month of January.

It took all 40 minutes and required fending off a late-surging Indiana team, but the Scarlet Knights escaped Assembly Hall with a 74-70 road victory on Sunday afternoon. The win ends a 5-game losing streak for Rutgers.

Geo Baker was the team’s leading scorer, dropping 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting from the floor. He was also responsible for 5 assists in the victory. Ron Harper Jr. had quite the day, too, scoring 15 points and grabbing 12 rebounds to record a double-double against the Hoosiers.

Rutgers owned a 38-33 lead at halftime and led by as much as 14 in the 2nd half before Indiana made a strong push in the final 10 minutes of the game. The Scarlet Knights owned a 73-70 lead with under a minute to play and had an opportunity to ice the game with a bucket.

Indiana got a key stop on that possession, but Myles Johnson grabbed a critical board for Rutgers and got the ball back to Baker, who converted 1-of-2 free throws to make it a two-possession game. Al Durham missed a 3-point attempt in the closing seconds and Harper grabbed the clinching rebound.

Rutgers shot nearly 51% from the floor and outrebounded Indiana 32-29. The Hoosiers were on fire from 3-point land, knocking down 10-of-16 shots from the perimeter, but it wasn’t enough for the win.

This was Rutgers first win inside Assembly Hall.

With the victory, the Scarlet Knights improve to 8-6 on the season while the Hoosiers fell to 9-7.
