BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Tyler Scaife scored 16 points and Rachel Hollivay and Briyona Canty added 13 each as No. 22 Rutgers used a 9-3 run late in the game to break away from stubborn LSU 64-57 on Saturday.

Canty scored twice, Hollivay added a three-point play in the flurry and Betnijah Laney also scored. Laney finished with a double-double in the third straight game, also snaring a career-high 16 rebounds.

With the win and UConn’s loss to Stanford, the Scarlet Knights (3-0) own the longest active win streak at nine games.

LSU (2-3) had 10 players score, led by DaShawn Harden’s season-best 15 points and four 3-pointers. The Tigers hit only 20 of 63 field goals (31.7 percent) and turned the ball over 21 times.

Rutgers picked up 12 steals - Canty, Scaife and Kahleah Copper each had three.
