  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Junior guard Cappie Pondexter (Chicago, IL) scored 22 of her 27 points in the second half as the Rutgers women’s basketball team cruised to a 77-57 victory over the NWBL Elite in an exhibition game on Sunday, Nov. 9, at the Louis Brown Athletic Center.

    RU took a 36-30 halftime lead behind nine points apiece from sophomores Courtney Locke (San Marcos, TX) and Michelle Campbell (Princeton, NJ). Pondexter ignited a 12-2 run with a three-pointer at the 13:15 mark of the second half, as Rutgers built a 53-37 lead and was never seriously threatened the rest of the way. Leading 58-48 with 5:43 to play, the Scarlet Knights scored 10 consecutive points, seven of which came from Pondexter, as Rutgers ended the game on a 19-9 run.

    Aside from Pondexter’s 27 points, two other Scarlet Knights scored in double figures – senior Dawn McCullouch (Long Beach, CA) with 17 points and Locke with 13 points. Sophomore Aquisha Cahoe (Philadelphia, PA) had six points and a game-high 10 rebounds, as RU outrebounded the NWBL Elite 52-31. Rutgers shot 39-for-48 (.813) from the free-throw line and forced 24 turnovers by the NWBL Elite.

    Rochelle Luckett (18 points, five rebounds) was the only player to score in double figures for the NWBL Elite.

    Rutgers’ 2003-2004 season officially gets underway on Friday, Nov. 14, when RU hosts St. Peter’s in the first round of the Preseason WNIT at 7:30 p.m.
