    PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Tyler Scaife had 21 points and Kahleah Copper had 17 points and 12 rebounds on Wednesday night to lead No. 24 Rutgers past Temple 67-58.

    Copper scored back-to-back baskets and Betnijah Laney added two free throws to cap a 6-0 run that gave Rutgers (21-6, 12-4 American Athletic Conference) a 63-55 lead with 3:37 to go. Laney had 11 points and six rebounds for Rutgers.

    The Scarlet Knights scored only four more points the rest of the game, but the Owls (12-15, 6-10) presented no challenge as they missed their last six field goals.

    The Owls fell behind 8-0 to start the game and trailed the entire way. They closed to within 31-28 at halftime, and Natasha Thames cut the gap to 57-55 on a three-point play with 5:30 left in the game.

    Feyonda Fitzgerald had 17 points and Tyonna Williams had 15 to lead Temple.
