PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Freshman Myles Mack scored a career-high 20 points and Rutgers snapped a two-game losing streak with a 94-56 win over the Maryland-Baltimore County Monday night.

Gilvydas Biruta and Mike Poole had 13 points apiece and Eli Carter 12 for the Scarlet Knights (4-3), who are 4-0 at home.

Chase Plummer and Ryan Cook scored 11 each for the Retrievers (0-6), who lost Chris De La Rosa earlier in the day when the senior guard left the team for personal and family-related matters.

Mack made 7 of 9 shots after going 6 for 23 (26.1 percent) in the last three games, including 0 of 6 in Rutgers’ last game, a 58-53 loss to Richmond in Cancun, Mexico.

Leading by five points, Rutgers scored nine straight to open a 28-14 advantage. The Retrievers got within 28-18 before Rutgers broke it open with an 18-6 run over the final 4:30 of the half.
