    On the Banks: OTB Staff Round Table: Rutgers Men's Basketball Season In Review

    It's been less than a week since the season ended for the Rutgers men's basketball team, but it feels longer. The void they left is large, as this group made it a fun winter and despite a rough end to the season, no one wanted it to end. That alone is progress. Some of our staff got together to discuss the season as well as expectations for next year. Let's tip things off here.

    David Anderson: Eugene Omoruyi. Without Gene on the floor, the defense was holier than Swiss cheese against Purdue. Either after that game or the subsequent Northwestern awful final minutes, I texted Aaron that RU might not win another game.

    On the Banks: Five Areas Rutgers Basketball Needs To Develop To Take Next Step

    The 2018-2019 season for the Rutgers basketball team is officially over, ending with a three game losing streak and falling short of the program's first winning season in 13 years. In Steve Pikiell's third year at the helm, the Scarlet Knights won more than double the amount of Big Ten regular season games than ever before. They finished in a three-way tie for 10th place after four consecutive last place finishes. However, there were missed opportunities as well and more progress that could have been made. Looking ahead to next season, here are five areas that Rutgers needs to improve on to continue to make progress and move up the Big Ten ladder.

    On the Banks: Here Are My All-B1G Basketball Selections for 2018-2019 Season

    I was included in SB Nation's All-Big Ten Honors voting this season and decided to publish my own ballot here. I gave my honest take on how I saw things within the conference this season, not from a Scarlet colored glasses view. The official All-Big Ten Honors voted on by the coaches and media will be announced Monday night at 5 p.m. ET on BTN.

    Player of the Year - Cassius Winston, Michigan State

    Carsen Edwards and Ethan Happ are great players in their own right, but Winston is so versatile and led Michigan State to splitting the conference championship with Purdue without it's second and third best players.

    A difficult week for Rutgers basketball didn't get any easier on Sunday, as they walked into the buzzsaw that was Assembly Hall on senior day, as Indiana was fighting for an NCAA Tournament berth.

Rutgers never stopped fighting, but it was clear Indiana had too much in the tank to falter, winning easily 89-73.

    First Half Summary

    It was a brutal start on the road for Rutgers and exactly what they needed to avoid.
