Rutgers is going dancing for the second consecutive year.
The Scarlet Knights were selected as a No. 11 seed, where they will play Notre Dame in one of the First Four games. The winner will play No. 6 seed Alabama.
Rutgers had an 18-13 overall record and went 12-8 in the Big Ten, finishing fourth. The Scarlet Knights went 6-6 in Quad 1 games, including a torrid stretch to start February, beating Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Illinois – all ranked at the time they played – consecutively.
Rutgers fell to eventual Big Ten Tourney champion Iowa in the quarterfinals. A senior class that includes Ron Harper Jr., Geo Baker and Caleb McConnell have helped build the program into its current state, capturing the Scarlet Knights’ first NCAA Tournament berth since 1976 last year.
