PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Khadijah Rushdan’s layup with 1.5 seconds left lifted No. 11 Rutgers to a 65-64 victory over No. 23 DePaul on Tuesday night.
Rushdan’s layup capped a furious second-half rally that saw the Scarlet Knights (17-3, 6-1 Big East) come back from a 16-point deficit with 10 minutes left. She had the final 11 points of the rally and finished the game with 24 points.
Trailing by one point with 8 seconds left after Deanna Ortiz missed the front end of a 1-and-1, Rushdan got the ball at midcourt from Nikki Speed and drove to the basket for the game-winner hitting a tough lay-in over Ortiz.

Anna Martin scored 26 points to lead DePaul.
