Dec. 7, 2008
DURHAM, N.C. -- The Duke Blue Devils used a 15-4 run at the start of the second of half to pull away from the Michigan Wolverines Saturday afternoon for a 60-45 non-conference win. Joy Cheek ignited the second half run for Duke knocking down three-pointers on back-to-back possessions.
Chante Black, who led the Blue Devils with 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting, pulling down seven rebounds and blocking six shots, was one of four Blue Devils to score in double figures. Carrem Gay had a season high 12 points on 6-of-11 shooting pulling down a team high nine rebounds.
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Highlighted by a record-setting performance by Tanae Davis-Cain, the Florida State women's basketball team defeated Temple 86-67 in Philadelphia, Pa. Sunday afternoon.
FSU’s (7-2) triumph over the Owls (4-3) certainly wasn't short on a storyline.
Davis-Cain will remember Sunday not just for the victory but also as the day in which she made history in front of a very special audience and busted out of an uncharacteristic slump.
RALEIGH, N.C. – Shayla Fields did about everything she could to snap NC State’s current slide, including a game-high 25 points, but in the end Florida made just enough plays Sunday afternoon for a 66-61 victory at Reynolds Coliseum.
It what can only be labeled a pattern at this point, the Wolfpack fell behind early by double digits and it was too much to overcome for a fourth-straight outing. On the bright side, however, the Pack did outscore its opponent in the second half for the second straight game.
PITTSBURGH - Kristi Toliver scored 12 points and Lynetta Kizer had 10 for Maryland, but the Terrapins fell, 86-57, at Pittsburgh on Sunday.
Shavonte Zellous scored 20 of her 26 points in the second half to lead Pittsburgh (No. 24 AP) to the upset of Maryland (No. 11 ESPN/USA Today, No. 8 AP).
Maryland (7-2) committed 22 turnovers in losing for the first time since a season-opening defeat at Texas Christian.
