Herve Lamizana had a career-high 22 points and 11 rebounds and Rutgers held off a strong challenge from Prairie View to win 66-57 last night.
Prairie View (1-7), which lost its seventh straight game, gave Rutgers all it could handle before the Scarlet Knights (8-3) prevailed. Rutgers has won five of its last six games.
Jerome Coleman scored 23 points for Rutgers despite shooting 8-for-25 from the floor. Coleman had two key baskets in the final three minutes after Prairie View had cut an 11-point lead to five with 2:29 left.

No, Herve Lamizana said, he's not being more assertive. That, he explained, would be cocky.
"My teammates are being smarter about getting me the ball. They know I'm hot," said Rutgers junior forward, the one whose tongue perpetually camps in his cheek.
Lamizana was as hot as he's been in two-plus years at Rutgers, knocking in 22 points, grabbing 11 rebounds, and keeping the Scarlet Knights in an electrifying - and anxious - 66-57 win over Prairie View A&M.
Rutgers struggles to top Prairie View

Rutgers coach Gary Waters went out of his way to say that Prairie View A&M was not to be judged by its record.
The Panthers, he said, have played a tough schedule and have battled hard in close losses to Oklahoma and Texas A&M. They will have a chance to win their league -- the Southwestern Athletic Conference -- he said, and therefore could be an NCAA Tournament team. According to Waters, no one should have expected Rutgers to coast last night at the Rutgers Athletic Center in Piscataway.
Appreciates small victory

After the game, Rutgers coach Gary Waters announced he had suspended Adrian Hill and Harry Good indefinitely after the two got into an altercation during practice Friday that spilled out into a fight off the court.
"We have a no-fight rule, so they're suspended," Waters said of the two.
To add injury to insult, Hill, a 6-8, 225-pound freshman from Canton, Ohio, suffered a hairline fracture in his left (nonshooting) hand, that will keep him out of action for two to three weeks.

When Rutgers' shots wouldn't fall Monday night against a feisty Prairie View A & M team, Rutgers relied on what has carried it to an 8-3 record this season - its defense.
Outshot and outrebounded by the 1-7 Panthers, Rutgers made up for its lackluster offensive performance with another defensive gem in a 66-57 win last night. Rutgers forced 25 turnovers and held Prairie View scoreless for seven minutes early in the second half to turn the momentum.

Rutgers holds off pesky Prairie View

A Prairie View A&M team short on scholarship players but long on swagger and athleticism, took over the Louis Brown Athletic Center on Monday night.
Before every first-half defensive possession, the Panthers, entrenched in a 2-3 zone, crouched and swatted the floor with their palms. The collective thud they made was eerily similar to the sound of Rutgers' shots clanging off the rim.

Around the Big East

As a kid growing up in the late 1950s in Okemah, Okla., where his father was a pump man in the oil fields, Larry Coker revered Oklahoma coach Bud Wilkinson. He would watch Sooners football games on TV on Saturday and then watch Wilkinson's TV show on Sunday. As a high school coach in Oklahoma in the 1970s, he met Wilkinson twice at coaching clinics.
Even-keel Coker keeps Miami on course for second title in row

This is a story about a streak, as in winning, and a streaker, as in au naturel. It's a buddy story, too, about two unlikely roommates who played college football, had the best years of their lives and, get this, even graduated. It's a story about a quarterback, Ken Dorsey, and his center, Brett Romberg, who have started the last 36 games together at the University of Miami and will play their final game together Friday night for college football's national championship against Ohio State in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in Tempe.

Around the Nation

Maurice Clarett always wondered if football had an inflated sense of importance at Ohio State.
The Buckeyes' freshman tailback found out the hard way yesterday it can sometimes reach the level of life or death.
Clarett grew up in one of the worst neighborhoods of Youngstown, Ohio, where gang activity and drive-by shootings are commonplace. When he was a child, he was playing football in the street when a boy sitting nearby was killed in a drive-by shooting. He was sitting on his front porch when a neighbor's friend was shot and bled to death on his front lawn. He has attended funerals of 10 friends who never made it out of their teens.
Buckeyes sack Clarett's wish
