Herve Lamizana leaned his elbow on a knee, rested his chin on his hand and glanced sideways at the clock ... for almost the whole first half.

Lamizana, Rutgers rally in second half

Since Saturday, misery had been Rutgers' constant companion. Saddled with a crushing loss to Virginia at home, with leading scorer Jerome Coleman struggling with a pesky stomach virus, the Scarlet Knights needed their share of cheering up.
For them, Morris Brown picked a perfect time to drop onto the schedule.
A nice little 68-48 romp over a hopelessly outmanned team worked like medicine with no side effects last night. Rutgers improved to 6-3, shut down Morris Brown at the start of each half, suffered only small lapses and got everyone on the bench a little work.
