EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Corey Sanders scored eight of his season-high 22 points in a game-ending 17-2 run Saturday, leading Rutgers to its biggest victory since Steve Pikiell became coach last year - a 71-65 win over No. 15 Seton Hall.
Freshman Geo Baker added 17 and Deshawn Freeman added 12 and 16 rebounds as the Scarlet Knights (10-3) beat a ranked team for the first time since defeating No. 4 Wisconsin in January 2015.
Myles Powell had 18 points to lead the Pirates (9-2), who had a five-game winning streak snapped in losing to Rutgers for the first time in five games.
Desi Rodriguez added 15 points and Angel Delgado had 21 rebounds for the Seton Hall, which did not score a field goal after Powell hit a jumper with 6:07 to play for a 63-54 lead.
It was all Scarlet Knights after that and the sellout crowd of 8,315 joined the players on the floor after it was over. << Read more
