Carter scores 22, Rutgers beats Princeton 58-52

PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) -- Rutgers enjoyed a rarity in its long
running in-state rivalry when it won at Princeton for just the
16th time in 60 games.

"Wow, that's a lot of history to go against," said coach Mike
Rice after Eli Carter came off the bench for 22 points to lead
Rutgers to a 58-52 win over the Tigers Friday night.

"We're just trying to change things, and this means we're
changing things" Carter said. "Getting wins on the road is nice,
and to get a win here at Princeton, it's a good win."

Austin Johnson, who scored five of his seven points when
Princeton put the game away, feels that the victory can have a
far-reaching effect.

"This was big for this program for years to come," Johnson said.
"I felt like they had our number. Now that we know what works
we'll be able to capitalize and emulate it every year we play

Myles Mack added 16 points for the Scarlet Knights (2-1), who
snapped a two-game losing streak to the Tigers but still trail
the series 74-45.

Princeton (1-2), coming off a loss to Northeastern in which it
blew an 18-point lead, got 13 points from Will Barrett and 10
points and six assists from Ian Hummer.

But Hummer, who had big performances in the Tigers previous wins
over Rutgers, was never really a factor as foul trouble limited

"He's not going to beat me for a third time," Rice said. "He
needs to score for them so we were attacking him on defense.
That made him defend and got him in foul trouble."

The Knights took the lead with under eight minutes remaining in
the first half and never relinquished it. Trailing by six at
halftime, the Tigers got within 37-36 but a Carter jumper
started a 6-0 Rutgers run and Princeton never got closer than
three again.

Led by seven rebounds each from Wally Judge and Kadeem Jack,
Rutgers held a 42-24 advantage on the boards.

Princeton took leads of 12-3 and 18-12 as Rutgers missed nine of
its first 11 shots. Mack's three-point play started a 9-0 run
for a 21-18 Rutgers lead and the Scarlet Knights built a 33-27
halftime advantage.

Carter scored 11 of Rutgers final 12 points in the half, hitting
three 3-pointers in that span. The sophomore guard shot 5-for-6
and had 16 points in 14 minutes.

"He was everything for them, we couldn't stop him," Princeton
coach Mitch Henderson said. "I don't think he had a basket
around the rim."

"He's so quick, you never know what he's going to do," Hummer
said. "He's got a quick jumper, a quick release. He made us pay
when we made mistakes."

It marked the second straight game Carter came off the bench
after a tough shooting night in Rutgers opener. He shot 6-for-9,
4-for-6 from 3-point range and 6-for-6 from the foul line.

"I have the same mindset whether I start or not," Carter said.
"I just try to help out my teammates." Princeton's last chance
came when it pulled within 50-46 with 5:48 remaining. Johnson
then scored five points in a 7-1 run as Princeton opened a 57-49
lead with 1:12 left. Johnson's biggest play came when he put
back a missed shot, got fouled and converted the three-point
play to make it 55-47.

"It was a smaller guy next to me so I knew I had an opportunity
to wedge him in," Johnson said. "I saw the shot go up and I just
wanted to get the best position I could. I just wanted to get
the rebound and make a play for my team."

The Tigers shot just 31.9 percent (15-for-47) while Rutgers was
slightly better at 39.5 percent (17-for-43).
