TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Stefanie Yderstrom's 3-pointer from deep in the corner with 17 seconds remaining gave 13th-ranked Miami a 60-57 win Sunday over Florida State and ended a 25-year victory drought for the Hurricanes in Tallahassee.

Chestnut Hill, Mass. - Senior center Sasha Goodlett finished with career-highs of 26 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Georgia Tech women's basketball team (13-5, 3-2 ACC) to a 68-58 win at Boston College (5-12, 0-4 ACC) Sunday afternoon at Conte Forum.

It was the first Yellow Jacket win at Conte Forum in four tries since the Eagles joined the ACC.

"Sasha has been playing consistently well throughout the course of the season," head coach MaChelle Joseph said. "She's really become our focal point on offense, but she does so many things on the defensive end with her rebounding and ability to alter shots. I think she's one of the top five players in the ACC. She's averaging almost 20 points per game in ACC play. She's been a very dominant force for us on the inside."

Goodlett was a one woman show in the first half, tallying her fifth double-double of the season by halftime with 16 points and 10 rebounds.

However, the Yellow Jackets began the game shooting about as cold as the Boston weather Sunday afternoon, making only one of their first seven shots, but good free throw shooting and defense kept Tech close early.

Williams Helps Duke Dominate Virginia Tech 61-34

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP)-Duke coach Joanne P. McCallie isn't big on excuses, and with the No. 7 Blue Devils playing at Virginia Tech on Sunday after playingFlorida State two days earlier, some might have been warranted.

Freshman Elizabeth Williams took care of that. She had 20 points, seven rebounds and four blocks and Duke took command with a 22-2 run in the first 10 minutes and beat Virginia Tech 61-34.

The victory was the 16th in a row in the series for the Blue Devils (14-2, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) and gave McCallie 50 victories in just 61 ACC games, making her the second-fastest to the milestone. Kay Yow of North Carolina State did it in 57 games.
