A fellow passenger, seemingly uninterested in hearing Rutgers' latest hot shots sing, leaned out the window and yelled, "SHUT UP." Unfortunately for him, the quintet just grew louder, and since that day the youngest Rutgers stars have done nothing but sing on the bus, whether on their way to practice or class, much to the entertainment (and sometimes chagrin) of the other passengers.

GREENSBORO -- Get her now. That's the advice for Rutgers coach Vivian Stringer because Maya Moore will be a freshman only once. Everything in this tournament is new for Moore, though you would not know it based on her comportment (calm) and performance (otherworldly). Stringer's team kept Moore in check for most of its 72-69 win Feb. 5, the only loss UConn has suffered in 36 games. Moore, a 6-foot forward, had two fouls before she scored her first point and was on the bench for much of the first half. She finished with 15 second-half points, including consecutive three-pointers in the final minutes.

For starters, the Scarlet Knights, not known for their three-point shooting (unjustifiably, it turns out) started the game hitting three-pointers like they were channeling the guards of Vanderbilt or Middle Tennessee State. Before the first half was over, three players had connected on eight of 10 three-pointers, with junior guard Matee Ajavon leading the way with a perfect 4-for-4.
