    Rutgers lost a March Madness classic. What's next?

    Rutgers' wild season came to an abrupt end with its double-overtime loss to Notre Dame in the First Four. And so did this era of Scarlet Knights basketball, with Geo Baker out of eligibility and Caleb McConnell and Ron Harper Jr. expected to move on. How will this group be remembered? And what does the future look like for Steve Pikiell's program? We also discuss last weekend's NCAA wrestling championships, spring football, Saint Peter's and more.

    Rutgers is dancing in Dayton. Can Scarlet Knights make March run now?

    Rutgers did not have to sweat out the NCAA selection show much -- the Scarlet Knights were one of the first names called -- but they will have to work overtime in their second straight trip to the Big Dance. We break down Rutgers' First Four game against Notre Dame in Dayton, examine what the team could do if it gets past the Fighting Irish and much more. We also talk a little football, a little wrestling and a little lacrosse. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
