Asleep at the wheel

DURHAM, N.C. -- This game is lulling everybody to sleep. Essence Vaughn stepped to the line and missed her free throw. Everybody -- the Devils on the blocks, the referees -- stood around and watched the ball bounce off the rim. Heather Zurich, seemingly the only one paying attention, picked up the loose ball and put back a layup. The Rutgers bench all had one finger raised indicating it was a 1-and-1 and even the refs weren't quite sure how to call it. But it was in fact a 1-and-1 and a head's up play by Zurich. In a game where points are at a premium, the Dookies will be kicking themselves if they lose because of a mental lapse like that.
