    PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- April Sykes scored 20 points and Khadijah Rushdan notched a double-double to lead Rutgers (No. 20 ESPN/USA Today, No. 24 AP) past Marquette on Monday night in the regular-season finale for both teams, extending the Scarlet Knights' perfect record in the all-time series to 9-0.

    Monique Oliver added 17 points for Rutgers (21-8, 10-6 Big East), while Rushdan had 13 points and 11 rebounds. The Scarlet Knights, who finished in sixth place in the conference, have a first-round bye in this week's Big East tournament.

    The teams were fairly close in the first half, with the Scarlet Knights taking a 35-30 lead into the break. But Oliver and Sykes combined to score the first nine points of the second half as Rutgers opened the period on a 9-0 run that put the game out of reach.

    Arlesia Morse had 19 points to pace the Golden Eagles (13-16, 4-12).
