CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - The first few games of the season for No. 20 North Carolina seem to be a clear chance for coach Sylvia Hatchell to test her team's depth. And that continued in the Tar Heels' second game of the season on Sunday.
Freshman Brittany Rountree, who made her first start, had 15 points including a trio of 3-pointers while senior forward Laura Broomfield added 13 with 10 rebounds in a 91-34 romp over brand new Division I member South Carolina Upstate.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - A three-point basket by Arkansas forward Sarah Watkins with 23 seconds left gave Arkansas a 55-52 lead and handed the No. 13/14-ranked Florida State women's basketball team its first loss of the season on Sunday during final day action at the WBI Classic.
The Seminoles finished 2-1 at the preseason event held at the Ocean Center. Junior forward Chasity Clayton led FSU with 15 points, while senior post Cierra Bravard scored 12 points on 6-of-7 shooting.
