McKinney used her 12th different starting line-up combination on Wednesday with three of the five scoring in double figures in the game. In addition to Hardy's 19, Tasha Taylor finished with 15 for her season high and April Parker, who transferred from Western Carolina following the 2005-06 season, added 13 against her former team.
Hardy led the Lady Tigers on the boards as well with 12 rebounds while tallying four assists and three steals. Christy Brown also posted double figures on Wednesday, just the second time this season the junior guard has done so, with 10.

Sours also tied for the team-high with five rebounds in a game where Miami outrebounded its opponent for the first-time in 13 games. The Glendale, Ariz. native also had four blocks. As a team, the Hurricanes swatted away a season-high 10 shots.
Freshman Shenise Johnson began the game on a hot streak, scoring 13 first-half points. The two-time ACC Rookie of the Week was limited to only two-points via free-throws after the break, due to foul trouble. Johnson ended the night with five assists one shy of the team-high, which belonged to Charmaine Clark, who had six.
Four different Hurricanes scored in double-figure, joining Sours and Johnson was Clark with 10 points and senior LaToya Cunningham with 11.
