Harper, Young and Mathis lead No. 24 Rutgers past Hofstra

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Rutgers has picked up where it left off before the coronavirus ended its season last spring - pushing hard for a long-elusive NCAA Tournament bid.

Ron Harper Jr. had 15 points and nine rebounds, Jacob Young had 17 points and No. 24 Rutgers beat Hofstra 70-56 on Sunday. It's the first time the Scarlet Knights (3-0) have won three games by 10 or more points to start a season since 1980-1981.

Rutgers was poised to make the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1990-91 last year before March Madness was canceled due to the coronavirus.
