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.

The Blue Demons (15-6, 3-4) couldn't get a shot off at the other end.

Anna Martin scored 26 points to lead DePaul.


STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Tiffany Bias scored 14 points, including a tiebreaking layup with 28 seconds left, and Oklahoma State beat a ranked opponent for the second time this season.

After Bias' layup broke a 53-53 tie, Texas A&M's Sydney Carter missed a 15-foot jumper with 6 seconds left. Lindsey Keller rebounded for the Cowgirls and hit two free throws with 4.3 seconds left.

Tyra White had 15 points for Texas A&M.

Oklahoma State (12-4, 4-3 Big 12) had lost 14 of its last 16 games against Texas A&M (13-5, 4-3), including the last seven at Gallagher-Iba Arena.


MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Ta'Shauna "Sugar" Rodgers and Tia Magee both scored 17 points to lead Georgetown.

Christal Caldwell had 25 points and nine rebounds for West Virginia, one rebound short of extending her double-double streak to eight games.

The Mountaineers (14-6, 4-3 Big East) led by one point at halftime but Georgetown (16-5, 5-3) pulled away with a 16-4 run in middle of the second half.

Magee's layup with 8:52 left gave the Hoyas the lead for good, and Georgetown extended it to as many as 13 points.
