Rodgers scores 27 as No. 17 Hoyas beat Rutgers

Jan 30, 2010 - 11:11 PM WASHINGTON(AP) -- Sugar Rodgers scored 27 points and No. 17 Georgetown rebounded from a loss with a 59-50 victory against Rutgers on Saturday.

Rodgers came within two points of her career best and posted her highest total in Big East play three days after the Hoyas (18-3, 7-1) lost at Marquette to end a school-record 16-game winning streak.

Khadijah Rushdan scored 18 points and Monique Oliver added 12 for the Scarlett Knights (12-9, 4-3), who lost their second straight game and fifth consecutive on the road.

Georgetown led by at least five throughout the second half and stretched its advantage to 43-25 with a 16-3 run. Rodgers scored 10 points in that stretch, the last six on consecutive 3-pointers from the left wing off kickouts from Rubylee Wright.

Rutgers, which was outrebounded 41-30, never came within nine points after that.
