PISCATAWAY – The magnitude of Rutgers’ upset over No. 4 Wisconsin Sunday night, a result that shook the college basketball world, could not be measured by point spreads or rankings or even the seismic blast of 6,987 fans erupting as the final seconds ticked off the 67-62 verdict.
Ultimately, it was measured in tears.
Head coach Eddie Jordan broke down four questions into his postgame press conference. Always stoic after both wins and the gut-punch losses his program has endured, the second-year skipper could not hold it together when asked what the victory meant.
B1G HIGHLIGHT – Rutgers celebrates its 67-62 upset victory over No. 4 Wisconsin.
What a fun day of Big Ten basketball! Rutgers stunned No. 4 Wisconsin to card its biggest upset in program history and to highlight Sunday’s three-game slate.
