JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) -Wesley Jenkins scored 26 points - including six 3-pointers - as St. Peter's surprised Rutgers 65-58 on Sunday.
Todd Sowell added 22 points and 11 rebounds for the Peacocks (2-2), who scored their first win over Rutgers since Dec. 22, 1978. Corey Chandler paced Rutgers (4-2) with 16 points, while JR Inman had 11 points and 13 rebounds and Hamady Ndiaye had 10 points.
St. Peter's was in control early on and led 33-28 at the break. The teams then traded baskets to open the second half until Rutgers went ahead 52-51 on two free throws by Mike Coburn with 5:43 left to play.
After two more lead changes, Jon Hogga hit two free throws with 1:13 remaining to give the Peacocks the lead for good at 60-58. Sowell then made a tough shot off a rebound with 33 seconds left, and Jenkins sealed the win by making two free throws with 20 seconds left.
Rutgers had opportunities to tie or win the game late, but they missed two layups down the stretch and failed to score over the last two minutes.
