CINCINNATI - With another shutdown performance by its defense, No. 22 Rutgers stayed in control of the Big East. Reserve running back Savon Huggins had a career-high 179 yards, and the Scarlet Knights shut down the league's highest-scoring offense for a 10-3 victory over Cincinnati on Saturday that left Rutgers alone in first place. Rutgers (9-1, 5-0) knocked the Bearcats out of the race and maintained its one-game lead over No. 20 Louisville, which was idle. The Scarlet Knights finish with games at Pittsburgh and home against Louisville.

Tuesday dawned bleakly in the central New Jersey town of Piscataway. The temperature was in the teens, and there were several inches of snow and ice on the ground. But at the Louis Brown Athletic Center, the outlook was sunny and the atmosphere was warmer than at a Wildwood beach in July. By 7 a.m. that day, 2,000 students had gathered in line at the building fondly known as "The RAC" to buy precious tickets to see their Rutgers basketball team play in tonight's championship game of the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament.

The Rutgers women's basketball team delivered a message. "Our defense is back," coach C. Vivian stringer said after the No. 15 Scarlet Knights' 72-46 rout of No. 6 UCLA last night. "We demonstrated some stuff to ourselves and sent a message across the country that our defense is going to be as stingy as it was last year. " Rutgers (6-2) was third nationally in scoring defense last year and was ranked sixth this season at 54.6 points per game. The Bruins (5-3), who led the nation by averaging over 80 points per game through the first seven games, had no answers for Rutgers's matchup zone.

Last year, Rutgers nearly upset Syracuse in the Carrier Dome before succumbing to a furious Orange rally that produced two touchdowns in the final three minutes. Yesterday, the Scarlet Knights exacted payback in spades. Corey Barnes returned a blocked punt and a fumble for touchdowns and Mike Teel threw for two scores in leading Rutgers to a 31-9 victory over host Syracuse. Despite perfect playing conditions inside the Carrier Dome, Syracuse (1-5, 0-3 Big East) lost five of nine fumbles and Rutgers (4-2, 2-1)

Tasha Pointer chuckled at the question, perhaps because the answer was so simple. What were her memories of her first game against Tennessee? The game when Rutgers got drilled, 92-60, in a Mideast Regional semifinal of the 1998 NCAA women's tournament, and she fouled out with too much time left on the clock? "I don't think I knew all the plays," said Pointer, now a junior. "That was my freshman year. " Along with a lot of things about the Rutgers women's basketball program since Vivian Stringer took over on July 14, 1995, Pointer has evolved.

A month ago, Rutgers senior guard Lynn Ust was lost for the season in a game at Penn State when she tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee. Since then, the Scarlet Knights' opportunities for postseason success have dimmed; they've lost three games and slipped from No. 9 to No. 18 in the weekly coaches' poll. "It's not so much what she did offensively, but she was the glue to our attack," Rutgers coach Theresa Grentz said last week. "She kept everyone calm, she gave us leadership and she played tough defense.

South Florida insisted it owed Rutgers revenge after three consecutive losses, but the No. 23 Bulls played last night as if they owed the Scarlet Knights a favor instead.

Cappie Pondexter hit two foul shots with 7.8 seconds remaining last night to end years of Rutgers frustration here with a 60-56 win over No. 4 Connecticut. It was only the third victory by the Scarlet Knights in the 22-game series between the two Big East and national powers, but Rutgers (18-3, 10-0 conference) had never beaten the Huskies in Gampel Pavilion or in nearby Hartford. The teams will meet again later this month in Piscataway, N.J., and possibly soon thereafter in the Big East tournament in Hartford.

Former Pennsbury High star Mike Jones didn't expect to be a factor in his first season on Rutgers' basketball team. However, Jones, a 6-foot-4, 175-pound freshman guard, has started for the Scarlet Knights most of the season. "It's been a pretty good year for me," Jones said. "I'm not averaging a lot of points (3.3) and rebounds (1.1) a game. But I've been starting and getting about 16 minutes a game. "I wasn't sure about my playing time. Rutgers had some fine guards coming back from last year's team, which won the Atlantic 10 Conference championship.

Fred Hill Jr. is at the Final Four again this year, rubbing shoulders with colleagues and counterparts from around the country. The 47-year-old Hill just joined the fraternity on Monday. When the Verona, N.J., native arrived in Indianapolis on Tuesday, he was a first-time head coach whose new job at Rutgers satisfied a career goal. An added bonus is that Hill's father, Fred Hill Sr., is in his 23d season as the Scarlet Knights' baseball coach. "Growing up in New Jersey, Rutgers was the state university, and I always thought it could be a good job," said Hill, who attended Verona High and Montclair State.

As Rutgers begins play in the Big Ten this year, the Scarlet Knights have a 26-member recruiting class. But it's a player who won't be able to compete until 2015 who is among the most intriguing prospects. That's because quarterback Philip Nelson is the one player in this recruiting class with actual Big Ten experience. Nelson has transferred to Rutgers after playing two seasons at the University of Minnesota, where he made 16 starts and appeared in 19 games. In the two years he completed 169 of 338 passes for 2,179 yards, 17 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

YOU DIDN'T think Temple was going to go the entire month of January without a win, did you? The Owls' eight-game losing streak - their longest in 38 years - started on New Year's Day at Rutgers. It finally ended last night against those same Scarlet Knights at the Liacouras Center, 88-82. On Sunday they had trailed 19th-ranked Cincinnati in the same building by 19 in the second half and drew even late, but couldn't finish things off. This time they led by 20 after 22 1/2 minutes, but saw the visitors go in front with just under 3 minutes left before closing with a 14-7 run. It's been that kind of season.

Earlier this week during practice, Fran Dunphy pulled Will Cummings aside. The senior guard had been struggling. Cummings missed two games in the middle of January with concussion symptoms and had been inconsistent in his two games back. Dunphy's message at practice: Find ways to get other players the ball. In an 88-82 win against Rutgers at the Liacouras Center on Wednesday night, it seemed Cummings got the point. Cummings had a career- high eight assists and scored 21 points to help Temple (6-13, 1-7 American Athletic Conference)

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Quenton DeCosey knows a thing about winning at the RAC. He grew up in Union, N.J., about 18 miles away from the Rutgers Athletic Center, and he led his St. Joseph's-Metuchen high school team to three conference championships on that court. But despite everything DeCosey did in his homecoming Wednesday night, his Temple Owls still are trying to figure out how to finish games. They let another late lead slip away in a 71-66 loss to Rutgers in the American Athletic Conference debut for both teams.
