TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Coming off two consecutive losses, the No. 21-ranked Florida State women's basketball team needed a spark in their home opener Monday night against Georgia State.
The Seminoles' junior class provided it.
Junior forward Chelsea Davis came off the bench to score a career-high 24 points, while redshirt junior wings Alexa Deluzio (20 points) and Chasity Clayton (18 points) nabbed season highs, as FSU defeated Georgia State, 94-74, in the home opener at the Donald L. Tucker Center.
BLACKSBURG, Va. - Despite a career-high 31-point effort from Monet Tellier, the Virginia Tech women's basketball team dropped a 78-59 decision to the visiting William & Mary Tribe on Monday night in non-conference action at Cassell Coliseum.
Tellier's output came on 13 of 22 shooting from the floor, which included a pair of 3-point baskets, and she was 2 of 4 from the foul line. She also added five rebounds, four assists and three assists to her totals.
With the loss, the Hokies fall to 2-2 overall, and 0-2 at home, while the win improved the Tribe's overall mark to 2-2 as well.
GREENSBORO, N.C. - Clemson pared a 13-point second-half deficit down to three, but couldn't close out the comeback on the road at North Carolina A&T on Monday night. The Aggies (3-2) hit 12-15 from the line in the second half and the Lady Tigers battled foul trouble throughout as A&T held on for the 76-66 win over the Lady Tigers, who fell to 2-2 on the season.
Freshman Nikki Dixon scored 19 points (8-11 FG, 1-3 3FG, 2-8 FT), including three straight Clemson hoops in cutting A&T's lead down to 62-59 with 3:08 to play in the game.
