NEW YORK - Freshman Raigyne Moncrief scored a season-high 27 points and Theresa Plaisance added 16 to lead No. 15 LSU to a 69-65 win over Rutgers on Friday in the Women's Invitational at Barclays Center.

LSU (5-1) was missing DaShawn Harden and Danielle Ballard, who were suspended for a game after being ejected for fighting in a game against Louisiana Tech last week. The pair were tossed after a video review by officials.

Even without the two, the Lady Tigers were too much for the Scarlet Knights (4-2).

LSU led by four at the half and increased the advantage to 48-41 before Rutgers rallied to within 50-49. That's as close the Scarlet Knights could get.

The Lady Tigers bumped the lead back up to eight before the Scarlet Knights rallied to 68-65 with 21 seconds left. Betnijah Laney missed a 3-pointer with 5.5 seconds left and LSU held on.
