They are second in the conference, as they only trail Ramapo College, who is 9-1. They are 13-4 overall — and the Lions defeated Ramapo earlier this month.

The Scarlet Raptors fell to 3-13 overall. They are a league-worst 1-9 overall in the conference.

Randall Walko was the Lions leading scorer with 24 points. He also had 11 rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and a steal.

Walko’s 24 points is shy of his season-high when he scored 28 points against Rowan University in December 2017. This is his second straight 20-point performance, as he had 22 points in a big win over Montclair State last Saturday.

TCNJ had five scorers in double-figures. Besides Walko, Eric Murdock Jr. had 17 and Niall Carpenter also had 12 from the starters. Ryan Jensen and Joe Montano combined for 29 off the bench, as Jensen had 16 and Montano added 13 points.

The Lions led by as much as 20 points in the second half. There was also three lead changes. Jensen and Montano had all of their 29 bench points.

Vincent Anfield Jr. led the Scarlet Raptors with a game-high 26 points. He also had four rebounds and an assist.

Rutgers-Camden had five players in double-figures. All five were starters, as Charlie Riccardi also had 22 points, while Marcus Taylor had 15 points. Terrance Harris added 12 and Anthony Harris had 10 points.

Ian McCarthy came off the bench and scored three points.

The Scarlet Raptors had three lead changes. But their largest lead in the game with just three points at 14:21 in the first half.
