PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Rutgers coach Eddie Jordan hopes his sophomore guard Mike Williams dedicated this game to his grandmother.
After not being able to come see him play in nearly a year, Eva Johnson made the trip from Brooklyn, New York, Saturday to see her grandson play after having minor surgery. Williams gave her quite the get-well gift, scoring a career-high 25 points, including five 3-pointers to lead Rutgers past Central Arkansas 87-84 Saturday in the second of two opening round games of the Men Who Speak Up Main Event.
"I was just playing basketball to be honest," Williams said. "I was taken what was given to me. I guess I wanted to give her a show because she came all the way out here to see me."
