What to Know

The New Jersey Tech Highlanders have quite the challenge ahead of them as they're expected to be blown off the court. They are on the road again on Tuesday and play against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at 7 p.m. ET Nov. 16 at Jersey Mike's Arena. Both teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

While not quite a landslide, the game between New Jersey Tech and the Lehigh Mountain Hawks this past Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as the Highlanders wrapped it up with a 73-56 win on the road.

Meanwhile, RU had enough points to win and then some against the Merrimack Warriors this past Saturday, taking their matchup 48-35.

The wins brought New Jersey Tech up to 1-1 and RU to 2-0. Two last-season offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: New Jersey Tech is stumbling into the contest with the 34th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 66.1 on average. The Scarlet Knights have only been able to knock down 37.60% percent of their shots, which is the 22nd lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
