Second-half rout powers Rutgers

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- No. 7 Rutgers used a pressing defense to force 19 turnovers in the second half as the Scarlet Knights routed St. Joseph's 80-38 Thursday night.

Leading 30-23 at the half, Rutgers went on a 13-0 run during the first six minutes of the second half. St. Joseph's was outscored 50-15 in the second half.

Five players scored in double figures for Rutgers, with Davalyn Cunningham leading the way with 14. Kourtney Walton and Mauri Horton each had 11 and Karlita Washington and Tasha Pointer 10.

Rutgers went on a 9-0 run after St. Joseph's scored the opening basket and built a 23-11 lead as Cunningham made a jump shot from the free-throw line.

NO. 3 NOTRE DAME 75, MARQUETTE 56: Ericka Haney scored 21 points to lead the visiting Irish. She was 7-of-7 from the field in the first half and 10-of-12 for the game.

Ruth Riley had 18 points and 10 rebounds for Notre Dame. She scored the first nine points of the game and led a strong inside effort for the Irish.

Marquette did not score until three minutes into the game, as the Golden Eagles missed their first five shots and ended up shooting 31.7 percent to Notre Dame's 47.5 percent.

Notre Dame led 47-32 at halftime, and Marquette never got closer than 13 the rest of the way.

NO. 8 PURDUE 80, DePAUL 67: Camille Cooper scored a season-high 29 points, and the Boilermakers used a 15-2 game-ending run to win at home.

Purdue watched DePaul rally from a three-point halftime deficit to take a seven-point lead.

Shalicia Hurns' layup with 12:25 left put Purdue ahead for good at 52-51. DePaul committed one of its 25 turnovers on its next possession, and it was converted into a basket by Shereka Wright.

The Boilermakers pushed their lead to 10, only to have DePaul come back again. Molly Watson's three-pointer cut it to 65-63, but the Blue Demons were held to just one field goal in the final 5:04.

NO. 12 PENN ST. 84, LA SALLE 64: Maren Walseth had 27 points and 12 rebounds for the host Nittany Lions. La Salle closed to 41-40 early in the second half, but Lisa Shepherd scored 10 points during a 22-8 run that put Penn State up 63-48 with 10:24 left.
