As Rutgers takes on Notre Dame in a First Four NCAA Tournament on Wednesday in Dayton, here are their three keys to victory.

Defend the 3 

Notre Dame shoots a sizzling 38 percent from downtown, which is tied for 15th in the country, and second-leading scorer Dane Goodwin is a 44.8 percent marksman. Rutgers has to run the Irish off the 3-point line. 

Attack the basket 

The Irish lack anything close to a rim protector. They were last in the ACC in blocks per game at 1.88, which should mean a lot of easy baskets for Cliff Omoruyi and Co. in the paint.

Ride your horses 

Make sure Geo Baker and Ron Harper Jr. get their shots. Rutgers has to sink or swim with the two seniors, leading scorers and faces of the revived program.
