Rutgers just wasn’t a good basketball team last season. They lost 15 straight games to close out a horrendous 2014-15 season. The Scarlet Knights lost their top two scorers from a season ago in Myles Mack and Kadeem Jack.

They are led by a trio of seniors, but that’s about all this team has going for them. Rutgers will need to be a strong defensive team in order to compete because they are a very inefficient offensive basketball team.

Projected Record: 10-20 (1-17)
