Freshman Jamee Crockett scored 17 of his career-high 20 points in the second half to help DePaul rally for a 69-64 victory over Rutgers on Wednesday night.

Cleveland Melvin had 14 points and hit a late go-ahead layup for the Blue Demons (11-9, 2-6 Big East), who snapped a five-game-losing streak overall and a four-game skid to Rutgers.

Tied at 62-62, Brandon Young drove and dished to Melvin, who converted with 1:46 remaining to start DePaul on a 7-0 run. Young had 11 points and seven assists.

The Scarlet Knights (11-10, 3-5), who have dropped three of their last four, got 22 points from Myles Mack and 14 from Jerome Seagears.

Rutgers took the game’s biggest lead at 50-39 with 10:21 remaining before Crockett hit the first of four straight 3-point attempts to start the comeback. He was 5 of 5 on 3-pointers in the second half.
