Johnson powers Rutgers past Stony Brook

(TSX / STATS) -- Nigel Johnson scored 21 points and visiting Rutgers went on a 15-0 second-half run before holding off Stony Brook 71-66 and giving coach Steve Pikiell a victory in his return to the Long Island campus on Saturday night.

Pikiell took Stony Brook to the postseason six times in the last seven seasons, the Seawolves going 119-48 in the last five. His final game was against Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament and he left 11 days later to try to rebuild the Scarlet Knights.

Rutgers won its first six games under Pikiell before losing at Miami. The Knights throttled Central Connecticut 79-37 Tuesday night, giving Pikiell his 200th win as a head coach.
