  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Junior guard Ricky Shields (Upper Marlboro, MD) scored 19 of his team-high 25 points in the first half as Rutgers defeated Coaches vs. Cancer - Team Dasani, 78-68, in exhibition action on Thursday, Nov. 13, at the Louis Brown Athletic Center.

    Shields shot 5-of-7 from three-point territory, as Rutgers used a 8-0 run early in the first half to take a lead it would never relinquish. During the spurt, Shields hit a three-pointer and then converted a lay-up on a fast break to give RU a 19-15 lead. At the 5:59 mark, the Scarlet Knights took their largest lead of the first half, 36-26, following a Shields three-pointer.

    Freshman guard Quincy Douby (Brooklyn, NY) made a three-pointer as time expired in the first half as Rutgers took a 42-31 halftime lead. A slam dunk by forward Adrian Hill (Canton, OH) made the score 53-39 early in the second half, but Team Dasani fought back to score nine consecutive points and cut the lead to 53-48. Team Dasani would get no closer the four points, 55-51, before Rutgers scored 16 of the next 24 points to take a 71-59 lead with three and a half minutes remaining.

    Senior forward Sean Axani (Red Bank, NJ) had 13 points and eight rebounds for the Scarlet Knights, while Douby added 15 points and made 3-of-6 three point attempts. Herve Lamizana (Ivory Coast, Africa) scored eight points, grabbed six rebounds and dished out five assists. Hill chipped in with nine points and seven rebounds. RU shot 48.3 percent from the floor (29-of-60) and 44 percent from the three point line (8-of-18).

    Rutgers suffered early foul trouble with Lamizana and freshman guard Marquis Webb (Paterson, NJ) each saddled with three fouls in the first half.

    “We had some jitters out there and that will happen with a young team in its first game” said Rutgers head coach Gary Waters. “This team will get better each day. I feel it, I see it. The best thing is we haven’t covered over 60 percent of what we have to cover for them to get better and better.”

    For Team Dasani, Mike Campbell had a game-high 28 points on 7-of-21 (.333) shooting.

    Rutgers begins its 2003-2004 season on Saturday, Nov. 22, when it hosts Lafayette at 7:30 at the Louis Brown Athletic Center
