Hatchell Gets Win No. 900 at BC

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. (AP) - North Carolina coach Sylvia Hatchell earned her 900th career victory when the No. 16 Tar Heels beat Boston College 80-52 on Thursday night.

Xylina McDaniel had 15 points and seven rebounds for North Carolina (21-3, 9-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). The Tar Heels lost to No. 5 Duke on Sunday - their first home loss of the season - spoiling Hatchell's first chance to become the third women's coach in NCAA history to reach the milestone.

Hatchell joins Pat Summitt and Jody Conradt in the women's 900-win club. Hatchell is tops among active coaches, with Rutgers' C. Vivian Stringer two wins behind.

Megan Stroman Dominant in Miami Win Over Clemson

CLEMSON, S.C. - Miami senior and South Carolina native Morgan Stroman wanted to play well in front of her family and friends in her homecoming.

The All-ACC candidate didn't disappoint as she led all players with 24 points and a career-high tying 16 rebounds, good for her team leading seventh double-double of the season. The Hurricanes pulled away late, moving to 16-7 and 7-5 in ACC play, on their way to the 62-46 win.

The Canes never trailed in the game, but Clemson (6-16, 2-9 ACC) closed the gap to two points early in the second half and then to within two possessions on Nyilah Jamison-Myers' jumper with 7:56 to play.
