It had all the makings of an upset victory.
With their leaders stepping up, shots pouring in, and a boisterous crowd to support them, the Scarlet Knights men's basketball team put it all together and overpowered the No. 9 Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 95-82, Saturday at the Louis Brown Athletic Center. The win helped Rutgers (12-14, 4-10) stay afloat in the race to make the Big East tournament, but also marked the first time RU defeated a top ten team in 21 years.

Former Rutgers All-American Bobby Brownlie is headed for the Chicago Cubs' spring training camp today in Mesa, Ariz., after agreeing to a minor-league contract that will pay him $850 a month but which adds a signing bonus of $2.5 million.
Cubs convince Brownlie with $2.5 million bonus
The Chicago Cubs agreed to contract terms Sunday with pitcher Bobby Brownlie, their first-round pick in last year's draft.
The Cubs selected the 22-year-old right-hander out of Rutgers with the 21st overall pick, but contract negotiations were slow.
Brownlie could have returned for his senior year at Rutgers, but in January he announced he would pass up the college season.

Around Big East
St. John's won on the game's last shot yesterday, but the celebration was on before it went in. Bizarre, but fitting for a day when the long-struggling Red Storm upset sixth-ranked Duke.
After a miracle steal and furious drive to the basket, St. John's Marcus Hatten was fouled on his layup attempt at the buzzer and awarded two free throws with no time on the clock and the game tied.
