  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) -- Gary Buchanan scored 27 points and Villanova set a scoring record for Rutgers' home court in a 110-89 win over the Scarlet Knights on Saturday night.

    Ricky Wright added 18 points for Villanova (11-5), which improved to 4-0 in the Big East for the first time since the 1997-98 season.

    Calvin Wooten led Rutgers (8-7, 0-3) with a career-high 24 points. The Scarlet Knights lost their fourth straight.

    After falling behind by as many as 21 points in the first half, Rutgers trailed by as many as 32 in the second half before cutting the lead to 12 in the final two minutes.

    Rutgers wilted under the Wildcats' defensive pressure early, committing seven turnovers in the first 4:06 when it fell behind 13-2. The Scarlet Knights also failed to guard the perimeter as Villanova made seven of its first nine 3-point attempts.

    The 110 points was the most ever scored by an opponent at the Louis Brown Athletic Center, surpassing the 105 scored by George Washington in a 105-100 win over Rutgers on Feb. 2, 1993.
