GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Eli Carter scored a season-high 25 points and teammate Myles Mack hit a crucial 3-point basket with less than two minutes remaining as Rutgers fended off UNC Greensboro 87-80 on Sunday afternoon.

Mack's 3 gave the Scarlet Knights an 80-73 edge and he followed that with a steal and driving layup. Mack, a sophomore guard, finished with a career-best 24 points, hitting 9 of 11 shots from the field.
