WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. -- Rutgers begins Big Ten play Tuesday on the heels of two straight non-conference victories. Trailing for most of Sunday's clash with Monmouth, Rutgers hit the one shot it truly needed -- a three-pointer by Myles Mack as time expired -- and escaped the MAC with a 59-58 victory. Head coach Eddie Jordan addressed it all in his post-game press conference.
Rutgers coach Eddie Jordan knew the call before the team huddled. Trailing by one point on the final possession, Jordan put the ball in his best shooter's hands.
And 5.6 seconds later, Myles Mack won it for Rutgers in style with a jumper. As Rutgers (8-5) prepares for its Big Ten opener Tuesday afternoon, the Scarlet Knights found some momentum in a 59-58 road victory.
Jordan broke it all down after the victory, including why he went to Mack with the game on the line.
