“We understand where we are,” Jordan said after the 84-54 loss to the Hoosiers. “To me, it’s not a streak. I understand that, but every day you get better. … You have to understand how to behave. Work on your game skill wise. … We’re just not a high-powered engine like most of the teams in the league are.”
After Rutgers lost Jack early, lackadaisical defense and another sub-50 percent clip from the free throw line buried any hopes at a comeback.
“They made shots and we didn’t,” Jordan said. “Out there [at Indiana] we made shots and we hung in and we made plays. We didn’t make plays here.”
Junior forward Greg Lewis put up a career game for Rutgers with 13 points and eight boards in 26 minutes.
On the longest losing streak of the 21st century, Rutgers (10-18, 2-13) travels to Purdue Thursday looking to avoid a dozen losses in a row.
