It’s pretty well established that Rutgers basketball isn’t taking too well to the Big Ten, what with the 5-43 record in conference play since joining.
Minnesota forward Jordan Murphy summed up all of that futility into a single play on Saturday when he took flight and inflicted pain upon Rutgers center C.J. Gettys.

That dunk came at the end of the first half. Murphy scored 15 of his team-high 17 points in the first 20 minutes.
Minnesota went on to record a 72-63 victory to improve to 18-7, 6-6 in the Big Ten. The Gophers will put their three-game winning streak on the line when they host Indiana on Wednesday.
Rutgers fell to 13-13, 2-11. The Scarlet Knights converted on just 1o of 22 free throws.
Gettys was at least a good sport after the game, tweeting that stuff like this happens.
lol it's basketball, you're bound to get dunked on. Life goes on ✌?
