    PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Courtney Williams scored 26 points and grabbed a career-high 13 rebounds, leading South Florida to a 60-51 win over No. 24 Rutgers on Monday, taking over sole possession of third place in the American Athletic Conference.

    After Betnijah Laney's jumper with 4:08 left in the first half pulled Rutgers within four, South Florida (18-11, 13-5) used a 15-3 run that bridged the two halves to open up a 40-24 lead with 16 minutes left.

    Rutgers (21-8, 12-6) made just 9 of 26 field goals and committed nine turnovers in the first half.

    The Scarlet Knights used a 14-4 run to pull within three with 1:27 remaining, but Williams hit a 3-pointer 30 seconds later to make it 57-51 before Rutgers missed its final four shots of the game.

    Syessence Davis led Rutgers with 12 points. Kahleah Copper, who came in averaging a team-high 16.1 points, scored seven on 2-of-11 shooting.
