DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- It didn't matter who Rutgers played. Coach C. Vivian Stringer just wanted to see the Scarlet Knights bounce back after an early exit in the Big East tournament, and she got her wish against Robert Morris.Kia Vaughn led four players in double figures with 22 points and second-seeded Rutgers routed 15th-seeded Robert Morris 85-42 on Saturday in the first round of the Greensboro Regional. The Scarlet Knights will play seventh-seeded Iowa State in the second round Monday night. The Cyclones held off Georgia Tech, 58-55, in Saturday's opener in Des Moines.
Robert Morris, which owned a 17-game win streak before running into Rutgers, had one of the worst shooting games in the history of the women's NCAA tournament against the Scarlet Knights.
