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.

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.

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.

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.

Mark Maccarone has many memories of coaching Ronnie James. His most vivid comes from his freshman season.

" By Maccarone's estimation, James, a 6-foot, 180-pound safety bound for Rutgers, played in every quarter of every one of the 45 games that made up his high school career. During that time, James, named to The Inquirer's all-South Jersey second team as a defensive back, split time at safety and running back.
