    PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Jerome Dyson scored 20 points and Connecticut shut down Rutgers in the second half in a 76-58 victory on Saturday, their ninth straight over the Scarlet Knights.

    Kemba Walker tallied 14 of his 16 in the final 20 minutes and the Huskies (16-11, 6-8 Big East) took control by limiting Rutgers to 10 points in the opening 11 minutes to expand a three-point halftime lead to 20.

    Connecticut, which was coming off a win over No. 3 Villanova, forced nine turnovers in the 27-10 run and outrebounded the Scarlet Knights 15-2 at one point.

    Jim Calhoun's team also worked hard inside, getting four follow-up baskets and two points after a player was fouled going up with an offensive board.

    Mike Rosario, who didn't start because he was late to a shootaround Saturday morning, had 14 points and Hamady Ndiaye added 13 for Rutgers (14-13, 4-10), which lost for the second time in seven games.
