Not delude anything from the 1976 team, but going undefeated in the B1G would be nice and the best red team. A true upstream program.

It is going to be much harder to go undefeated this day and age compared to 1975-76, they scheduled 25 reg. games(25-0, mostly Ind. and ECC), a conference tournament? 2 games(2-0), and won 4 to get to 31-0 and Final Four. 2020-21, they would have 30-31 reg. games(20 B1G games), double bye B1G tourny(3-0), and 4 more to go undefeated final four(37-0 or 38-0). Much harder road but I could definitely see this team near or over the 30 win total at the end of the year with 2 seniors(Geo, JY) and 5 juniors(RHJ, MM, CM, MJ, Doucoure) leading this very deep team. The top 3 win totals in Rutgers history is 31(75-76), 24(77-78), and 23(82-83). So the last 37 years, RU MBB have won 20 games twice, 2003-04(20-13) and 19-20(20-11). Expect most if not all the records to fall with next year's team.
