  • EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- A hot-shooting Seton Hall squad converted 55 percent from the floor (29-of-53) to snap Rutgers’ four-game winning streak, with an 85-58 victory Saturday night at the Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, NJ.

    In a match-up of two New Jersey rivals, Seton Hall (15-5, 5-3 BIG EAST) opened up an early 23-8 lead nine minutes into the contest and never looked back, handing Rutgers (13-7, 5-5 BIG EAST) the loss.

    Rutgers, which ranks fifth in the BIG EAST in field goal percentage defense, allowed an opponent to shoot 50 percent or better from the field for an entire game for only the second time this season.

    Junior guard Ricky Shields (Upper Marlboro, MD) and senior forward Herve Lamizana (Abidjan, Ivory Coast) led Rutgers with 14 points apiece. Lamizana finished with 14 points, seven rebounds and four assists.

    Freshman guard Quincy Douby (Brooklyn, NY), the reigning BIG EAST Rookie of the Week, continued to shine for the Scarlet Knights. For the fifth time in the past six games, Douby registered double-digits in the scoring column with 13 points, including a pair of threes in 23 minutes of action.

    Andre Barrett had a game-high 20 points for a Seton Hall team that saw five Pirates score in double digits.

    As a team, Rutgers was held to 21-54 (.328) for the game, its lowest of the season.

    The Scarlet Knights return to action on Wednesday, Feb. 10, traveling to Syracuse for a BIG EAST tilt with the defending national champion Orangemen at 7 p.m.

    Junior guard Ricky Shields moved up in Rutgers’ career scoring chart tonight into 33rd place, passing Brian Ellerbe (1981-85) and Clarence Tillman (1980-1983) with 985 career points. Shields needs just 15 points to become the 33rd member of the Rutgers 1,000-point club. He also moved into a tie with Todd Billet (1999-2001) for sixth-place on the all-time RU list for three-pointers made with 158.

    LAMIZANA SWATS 199TH CAREER BLOCK
    Senior forward Herve Lamizana rejected his 199th career shot vs. Seton Hall. He needs just one more to become just the fourth Scarlet Knight to reach the 200-block plateau.
