PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Rutgers put together its most dominating Division 1 win under head coach Steve Pikiell, overwhelming Niagara 86-39 on Sunday.
It was the largest margin of victory for Rutgers since Pikiell took over the program in 2016. The Scarlet Knights (2-0) recorded a 79-37 win in Pikiell's first season, but that occurred against Division 3 Central Connecticut State.
Rutgers was impressive on both ends of the court in Sunday's wire-to-wire win. It shot 59% from the field, distributed 22 assists on 35 baskets and forced 17 turnovers that led to 26 points.
