Notable: Buckeyes freshman forward Justin Ahrens (flu) did not make the trip. … Senior guard C.J. Jackson has been receiving treatment for the leg cramping that kept him out of the second half against Michigan State, and coach Chris Holtmann said he hopes the issue is under control. … Rutgers ranks No. 230 nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency and No. 39 in adjusted defensive efficiency. … The Scarlet Knights are 10-66 (.132) all-time in regular-season play since joining the Big Ten in 2014.
