EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Aerial Powers scored 18 points and matched a career-high with 18 rebounds for her 20th double-double of the season to help Michigan State upset cold-shooting No. 19 Rutgers 60-50 Sunday.

Powers has now scored 600 points this season, breaking the school's single-season scoring record.

Rutgers (20-7, 11-5 Big Ten) falls into a three-way tie with Minnesota and Ohio State for third place in the conference. Michigan State (13-14, 5-11) is now 2-7 against ranked opponents this season.

Rutgers shot 20 of 64 from the floor (31 percent). Tyler Scaife, who averages 43 percent shooting per game, was held to just two points on 1-of-14 shooting.

Scarlet Knights' center Rachel Hollivay left the game with 3:41 remaining after injuring her left knee.
