Nov. 25, 2008
CLEMSON, SC - With Clemson leading by just two points late in the game, senior Tasha Taylor knocked down a three-pointer from the top of the key that effectively clinched a 76-68 Lady Tiger victory over Winthrop on Tuesday night at Littlejohn Coliseum.
"During the last few minutes I felt I had to step up," Taylor said. "I'm a senior and had to be a leader. I took the big shot and it went in."
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida State head coach Sue Semrau juggled the starting line up for Tuesday's 11 a.m. match up with the Southeast Missouri Redhawks and it must have worked.
Solid post play and strong rebounding propelled the Seminoles (4-1) to a 62-31 win over Southeast Missouri (3-1) at the Donald L. Tucker Center. Junior forward Jacinta Monroe and freshman center Cierra Bravard combined for half of the Seminoles' points with 18 and 13 points, respectively.
MIAMI – The University of Miami women’s basketball team (2-2) utilized their depth in a convincing 66-49 win over the FIU Golden Panthers (0-4) at FIU’s U.S. Century Bank Arena Tuesday night.
Three-point shooting doomed Miami in their last game against Houston, but LaToya Cunningham turned the tables on FIU as she hit a career-high five shots from behind the arc. The senior captain scored 16 points to lead all scorers, the most since a 17-point effort a season ago against Milwaukee.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Cetera DeGraffenreid scored 15 points to lead No. 2 North Carolina to a 96-42 rout of Wofford on Tuesday night.
Chay Shegog added 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Tar Heels (6-0), who scored the game's first 14 points and limited Wofford to 20-percent shooting. Iman McFarland and Laura Broomfield also scored 12 points apiece for North Carolina.
