PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) -- Devine Redding gave Indiana the lead with a 34-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter and caught Richard Lagow's third touchdown pass of the game in the fourth as the error-prone Hoosiers rallied for a 33-27 win over Rutgers Saturday.

Lagow was 28 of 40 for 394 yards. He hit Ricky Jones for a 36-yard score and started the second-half rally for Indiana (5-4, 3-3 Big Ten) with a 40-yard TD toss to Camion Patrick.

Zander Diamont added a 59-yard touchdown run for Indiana, which turned it over four times, missed three field goals and two extra points.

Devonte Green is one of those attractive Class of 2016 players who has yet to pick a school.

The uncommitted 6-foot-2, 175-pound point guard out of Long Island Lutheran remains on the board and is drawing increasing interest from several schools. Indiana head coach Tom Crean and Iona head coach Tim Cluess and associate head coach Jared Grasso watched Green go off for 31 points with seven 3-pointers Thursday night in a 97-58 blowout win of Chaminade.

"Devonte has had a great start to the season," LuHi coach John Buck said. "Coach [Bruce] Weber from Kansas State and Coach Crean from Indiana have been out to see us play. If he continues to work hard and lead our team, I'm confident he will be one of the most sought after guards that has yet to commit."
