Rutgers Junior Aiden Terry celebrated his birthday in grand fashion on Wednesday night.

With Rutgers well on its way to a 90-55 victory over the Minnesota Golden Gophers, Terry nailed the first three-pointer of his career when he took a pass from Derek Simpson, set himself up nicely in the corner and nailed the biggest shot of his Rutgers career — sending all 8,000 in attendance into a frenzy chanting “Ai-den Terry!”

For Terry, the three-pointer was only the second such attempt of his career. He is now 2-for-5 in field goals overall in his career at Rutgers.

When asked about Aiden Terry’s shot, Coach Steve Pikiell said, “Aiden’s birthday is today, so a great birthday present for Aiden. He teed it up. Again, Aiden does a lot of things that you guys don’t see for our program. And he’s a worker, he’s part of our scout team and he has to do a lot of things. One day he’s the point guard, one day he’s a two guard, he has to act in his role as the other guy on the other team does. Happy for Aiden, he got in there on his birthday – his birthday present.”

Terry was a walk-on last season with Rutgers and was awarded a scholarship by Pikeill.
