Khadijah Rushdan’s layup with 1.5 seconds left lifted No. 11 Rutgers to a 65-64 victory over No. 23 DePaul on Tuesday night.

Rushdan’s layup capped a furious second-half rally that saw the Scarlet Knights (17-3, 6-1 Big East) come back from a 16-point deficit with 10 minutes left. She had the final 11 points of the rally, including her coast-to-coast layup for the final two points, and finished the game with 24 points.

Trailing by one point with 8 seconds left after Deanna Ortiz missed the front end of a 1-and-1, Rushdan got the ball at midcourt from Nikki Speed and drove to the basket for the game-winner.

DePaul (15-6, 3-4) couldn’t get a shot off at the other end.

Anna Martin scored 26 points to lead the Blue Demons.
