Susan Moran’s 25 points against Rutgers may look impressive at first glance, but they were a little like receiving candy-coated coal in her Christmas stocking, coming as they did in St. Joseph’s 80-38 loss to the Scarlet Knights. The bulk of Moran’s points, 13, came from the foul line. The remainder came on 6-for-19 shooting from the floor. The junior from Tullamore, Co. Offaly also had six rebounds. St. Joe’s, now 4-5, was down by only six at the half to seventh-ranked Rutgers, but was plagued by turnovers in the second half. St. Joe’s committed 25 turnovers in the game to Rutgers’ seven.
