Rutgers defeats Drexel 58-56 on last-second layup

Nov 21, 2009 - 3:17 AM PISCATAWAY, N.J.(AP) -- Gregory Echenique scored the game-wining layup as the clock expired to lift Rutgers to a 58-56 win over Drexel on Friday night.

Drexel finished with 16 points and 14 rebounds, Mike Rosario added 13 points and Mike Coburn had 11 for the Scarlet Knights (2-0).

After Drexel's Yannick Formbor scored on a putback with 12.3 seconds remaining, Rutgers brought the ball up court and called a timeout with 1.9 seconds remaining.

Echenique caught the inbounds pass from Coburn at the foul line and drove to his left side, banking in an off-balance, left-handed layup.

Rutgers held its biggest lead of the second half at 45-38, but missed 15 of 20 foul shots in the final 13 minutes to let the Dragons stay in the game.

Drexel (0-3) was led by Gerald Colds and Jamie Harris with 12 and 10 points, respectively.

Rutgers led 29-28 after a first half that saw 13 combined turnovers.
