PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers coach Steve Pikiell had good reason for being unable to answer questions about winning his 200th game.I didnt know about that, said Pikiell after Rutgers beat Central Connecticut 79-37 on Tuesday night. Im just worried about the next one.The next one is at Stony Brook, where Pikiell spent his previous 11 seasons and led the Seawolves to the 2016 NCAA Tournament. Hes not getting nostalgic about it.I dont spend a lot of time thinking about those things, he said. I want to start breaking down tape and get these guys ready to go. Im just proud were getting better and we had good signs moving forward for us today.Nigel Johnson scored 16 points and Corey Sanders had 14 points and five steals for the Scarlet Knights (8-1), who won by their largest margin over a Division I team in 11 seasons. Deshawn Freeman shot 6 for 6 for 12 points and had seven rebounds, while C.J. Gettys added 10 points.Austin Nehls had nine points for the Blue Devils (3-5), who have lost five of their last six.It was tied at 6-6 before the Scarlet Knights scored five straight to take the lead for good. The score was 42-21 at halftime and Rutgers continued to build on its advantage, closing with a 24-4 run over the final nine minutes.This is going to be a tough one to take lessons from, said Blue Devils coach Donyell Marshall, who was a player at UConn when Pikiell was a Huskies assistant. (Rutgers) has learned that they are tired of losing. They are tired of people talking about Rutgers basketball in a negative way and they are doing something about it. Until we learn to do something about it, we are going to continue to be that way.BIG PICTURECentral Connecticut: The Blue Devils had their lowest scoring game of the season along with their lowest scoring first and second halves after shooting 25 percent overall (14 of 56) and committing 22 turnovers.Rutgers: The Knights shot a season-high 64.8 percent (35 of 54) and had a season best 24 assists. It was their highest assist total since getting 27 against UMBC on Nov. 28, 2011. Gettys hit his first five shots before missing, snapping a string of 15 consecutive made baskets. The margin of victory equaled Rutgers largest since beating Maryland Eastern Shore 92-50 on Dec. 7, 2005.DEFENSE DOMINATESIt was the first time Rutgers held a team under 40 points since limiting Pitt to 39 on Jan. 11, 2012. Sanders felt Rutgers early runs started at the defensive end. If we lock up on one end the other end is going to come, he said Coach really stresses defense every day. Coach sets the speed limit (points allowed). The speed limit is 55, today we had them way below that. We shut them down on that end and the offense came.BENCH BUNCHRutgers once again got a big game its bench, which outscored Central Connecticut 33-8. Mike Williams was a key with eight points and seven assists. Im able to see how the pace of the game is going. Im able to read off my teammates, see whos hot, whos in a certain position. I love my role, Williams said.STUFF ITRutgers had eight dunks, many coming off its 28 fast-break points.UP NEXTCentral Connecticut: The Blue Devils visit Duquesne in the second game of a seven-game road trip. CCSU is 1/3 on the road this year.Rutgers: Pikiell will have his homecoming as the Scarlet Knights travel to Stony Brook Saturday. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Legarrette-Blount-Draft-Jersey/ .

He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. Newport Gwent Dragons secured only their third win in all competitions this season as they survived a second-half comeback from PRO12 champions Connacht to claim a 21-16 victory at Rodney Parade.It was a first league win for the Welsh region in six attempts, while Connacht went home with a losing bonus point for their efforts.Wing Ashton Hewitt scored both of the Dragons tries while outside-half Angus OBrien kicked 11 points via a penalty, two drop goals and a conversion.Fly-half Jack Carty booted three Connacht penalties and converted their only try through wing Niyi Adeolokun.The highlight of an average first half was Hewitts electrifying touchdown that has to be in contention for the try of the season.It came 13 minutes into the match when scrum-half Sarel Pretorious found a gap on the right and surged over the halfway line.The ball was spun swiftly across the home back division through centres Jack Dixon and Sam Beard as the Connacht backs spread wide to cover.Hewitt took the pass 30 metres out on the left touchline and raced past the desperate cover to run to the corner, with OBrien converting.OBriens boot increased the Dragons lead to 10 points with a straightforward 25-metre penalty but when they infringed 40 metres from their own line, Carty was on hand to get Connacht off the mark with a booming penalty.The Dragons retaliated as they put pressure inside the Irishmens 22 for Pretorious to send a pass into the pocket for OBrien to land a 30-metre drop--goal that restored the 10-point advantage.ddddddddddddConnacht hardly came close to the home try line in the first half and posed little threat in attack but they managed to pull back the deficit two minutes before the break when the Dragons were penalised 30 metres out and Carty made no mistake.Connacht came out with more purpose in the second half, with scrum-half Caolin Blade like a terrier around the base of the breakdowns.But handling errors were Connachts biggest headache, and, when the league champions tried to get something going, they were reined back.And, when Hewitt beat the covering defence to the ball as Beards long grubber kick down the left touchline drifted into the in-goal area, the Dragons were closing in on revenge after Connacht did the double over them on their way to last years title.OBrien sank his second drop-goal of the night after 52 minutes to put his side 15 points ahead, although Carty kicked his third penalty five minutes later.Centre Bundee Aki was a thorn in the Dragons side most of the night but the home defence looked to be standing up to the visitors pressure until they were caught napping as Adeolokun stormed over on the right for a neat try that Carty converted.That took the Irishmen to within one try of levelling the match during a tense final 10 minutes but the Welshmen held out for victory.
