Coach Steve Pikiell Not Concerned About Rutgers' 4-game Skid
Coach Steve Pikiell isn't worried about the four-game slide that has caused Rutgers to drop out of the AP Top 25. After all, every team goes through a tough stretch.
The Scarlet Knights (7-5, 3-5 Big Ten) have struggled since opening the season with six consecutive wins and then running into a buzz-saw schedule in one of college basketball's toughest leagues.
There are six Big Ten teams currently in the Top 25, and the Rutgers has lost to No. 4 Iowa, No. 10 Wisconsin and No. 15 Ohio State (twice) in dropping five of its last six.
We went through it last year, too, at this time, he said Tuesday in a conference call.
