NEW YORK -- Wally Judge hit all nine of his shots and scored a season-high 20 points to go with 10 rebounds, leading Rutgers to a 76-57 victory over DePaul on Tuesday night in the first round of the Big East tournament.
 
Myles Mack added 19 points to help the No. 11-seeded Scarlet Knights (15-15) advance to the second round of the nation's showcase college basketball tournament for only the sixth time in 14 trips to Madison Square Garden.
Rutgers will face sixth-seeded and No. 24 Notre Dame (23-8) in the late game Wednesday night. The Irish beat the Scarlet Knights 69-66 in South Bend, Ind., in a game that came down to the final possession.
Cleveland Melvin had 25 points for DePaul (11-21), which ended the season with only one win in its last 17 games -- and it came against Rutgers.
