Hoosiers let 15-point lead slip away, fall 74-63 to Scarlet Knights
Baker, who shot 7 of 13 from the field, set a program record with six made 3-pointers in a Big Ten conference game and had a season-high 10 assists.
Baker hit four of the Scarlet Knights‘ seven 3s in a 25-6 run over a 7-plus minutes span that made it 33-29 with 55 seconds left in the first half, and Rutgers (13-13, 9-9) led the rest of the way.
Myles Johnson had 10 points, 10 rebounds and a career-high seven blocks for Rutgers.
The Scarlet Knights went into the game on the bubble for the program’s first NCAA tournament berth since 1991. Their last two regular season games are on the road at Nebraska (5-16, 1-13) on Monday and Minnesota (13-10, 6-10) on March 6.
Indiana has lost back-to-back games and three of its last four. The Hoosiers play host to No. 3 Michigan on Saturday before closing out conference play with road games against Michigan State and Purdue.
