MSU-Rutgers: R U Ready for the Sweet 16

By Jeff Lippman - March 20, 2007

With 4:00 to play, I think it can almost be made official...Rutgers is going to the Sweet 16.

The score is 59-45 and the last four made field goals by the Knights have been three-pointers.

Michigan State has gotten solid games from Lucas-Perry (12 points), Haynes (14) and Aisha Jefferson (11), but past that threesome, the points have been scarce.

You can't win shooting 29 percent, either. Also, it's never good when your opponent makes over 50 percent of their threes.

Rutgers is winning every single statistical category with the exception of free-throw percentage and surprisingly, rebounding.

MSU's game plan was to outrebound the Knights, which they have done to no positive to the scoreboard whatsoever.

Rutgers is an excellent team and continues to play their best basketball at the right time.
