ASU Can't Match Rutgers, 64-45, Fall Short Of Final Four
March 26, 2007
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Good Knight, Rutgers! C. Vivian Stringer and her scrappy Scarlet Knights are headed to a most unlikely Final Four.
Kia Vaughn had 17 points and 10 rebounds while dominating the paint to power Rutgers to a 64-45 victory over Arizona State on Monday night in the Greensboro Regional finals, clinching the Scarlet Knights' second trip to the national semifinals.
Matee Ajavon had 20 points, Essence Carson added 11 and Epiphanny Prince had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Scarlet Knights (26-8), who led by 24 and held a 48-26 rebounding advantage in winning their seventh straight.
Now it's on to Cleveland, where they will face either LSU or Connecticut from the Fresno Regional on Sunday in the Final Four.
