PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) While the wins keep coming, the shots aren't falling for Rutgers.
Eugene Omoruyi came off the bench to score a career-high 19 points and grab eight rebounds while Corey Sanders added another 13 points off the bench to lead Rutgers past Coppin State 64-39 on Sunday at the RAC despite an afternoon of putrid shooting.
"I just have to keep playing hard and motivating my teammates and everyone will play hard," Omoruyi said of the shooting struggles. "We're always on the nightshift so we're always working on the shots. It just wasn't falling today."
Especially from the free-throw and 3-point line.
Rutgers was just 14 of 28 from the line, down from the 60 percent they were shooting coming in. The 3-point shooting got worse, too, as Rutgers went 2 of 17 after coming in at 23.2 percent. Overall, Rutgers was 24 of 66 from the field. >> Read more
