PORTLAND - Alex Montgomery and Jacqua Williams returned to the Pacific Northwest for the first time in a Yellow Jacket uniform and led the Georgia Tech women's basketball team to a 74-59 win over Oregon (3-4) in the 11th Annual Papé Jam at Portland's Rose Garden Saturday afternoon.
Montgomery led all scorers with 18 points and had four steals on her way to winning the Papé Jam's Most Valuable Player award. Williams continued her strong play for Tech (8-2) by adding 16 points and finishing with three steals.
CORAL GABLES - Head coach Katie Meier had her University of Miami women's basketball team (6-3) running on all cylinders in a 72-37 rout of the Binghamton Bearcats (4-6), Saturday afternoon at the BankUnited Center.
Miami's defense swarmed all over Binghamton with their full court press for almost the entire game. The 37 points allowed were the fewest since giving up only 30 to USF on Nov. 23, 1996. The Hurricanes forced 26 turnovers while only committing 13 of its own.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Rashanda McCants was glad to be playing basketball, even if she had to wear a mask to protect her broken nose.
After a 10-day break from competition for exams, McCants and No. 2 North Carolina blew off the rust with a 95-44 victory over Coastal Carolina on Saturday.
