Rutgers lost its first 23 conference road games as a member of the Big Ten before, finally, the Scarlet Knights won at Penn State on Saturday, 70-68. Tonight Steve Pikiell's men played another close game on the road, only to fall at Ohio State 70-64. No loss is good news, but all in all it's been an encouraging few days for Rutgers.

Maryland, undefeated on the road while relying on a lot of young talent, quietly growing into a team with serious postseason potential.

That's the difference with the stars. Melo Trimble has had one of his worst nights. But he hits a big shot down the stretch. They always think they'll hit the next one.

You have to reassess freshmen each month because so much changes from November to March as they adjust to the collegiate game. Maryland's Justin Jackson is a freshman who has displayed great gains in recent weeks. Could be the star of February/postseason for Maryland if this trajectory continues.

Jared Nickens created that pocket on the last Maryland drive. Buckeyes know he can hit the shot in the corner. Shifted when they saw him open for the 3.
