WATCH: The catchy wild beater gives Rutgers men’s basketball a win over Purdue #1

With nearly three seconds left, No. 1 Bordeaux took a 68-67 lead thanks to a Trivion Williams layup. Rutgers guard Ron Harper Jr. was taking the inside pass and quickly past the half-court line before knocking out three loud hits for a 70-68 win.

Harper leads the Crimson Knights with 30 points while shooting 10-15 from the field shooting range and 5-7 from outside the arc. As a team, Rutgers had a field goal percentage of 52.1% (25-48) and 50% of three (7-14).

Purdue’s fatal flaw in this game was poor shooting, being 25-61 from the field. This included going 7-26 from depths. As usual, Boilermakers dominated the coatings past the Rutgers 35-27. Striker Travon Williams leads the team with 11 rebounds and 21 points.

This was Purdue’s first match since it ranked first in the most recent AP poll. The Boilermakers became the fifth team to ever lose their first game as No. 1 in the AP Poll. The last time this happened was when Wisconsin fell to Michigan in 2007.

There was more history in Piscataway. This was Rutgers’ first win over a highly ranked team in the program’s history.

The Scarlett Knights will have a chance to beat their second-seeded team of the week when they face No. 23 Seton Hall on Sunday, December 12 at 7:30 PM ET. Purdue will attempt to get back on track by matching it up with NC State on Sunday, December 12 at 2 p.m. ET.
