Women: FSU stuns second ranked opponent
By ZACHARY SPAIN
Published January 21, 2005
TALLAHASSEE - Florida State's improbable rise reached a new high Thursday night as it upset No. 9 North Carolina 79-73 in overtime.
For the second time in four days, the Seminoles knocked out a ranked Atlantic Coast Conference opponent. The Seminoles (17-2, 4-1) upset then-No. 15 Maryland 95-91 Sunday, also in overtime.
"They just continue to come out and meet challenges," FSU coach Sue Semrau said.
FSU's first win over the ACC power since 2001 was made even sweeter by the presence of the family of Ronalda Pierce, who died in June due to complications from the genetic Marfan syndrome. The family joined the team in the locker room after the game.
"It was just so special, for them to come into the locker room with us afterward," Semrau said. "We've got a very special angel up there."
Guard Roneeka Hodges, who scored a school-record 39 against Maryland, converted a three-point play with 1:53 left to tie after splitting defenders on a drive.
FSU then overcame a harried UNC possession in the final minute that included two offensive rebounds and two 3-point attempts, including one by La'Tangela Atkinson that went off the rim as time expired.
Junior Ganiyat Adeduntan scored a career-high 26 on 10-of-16 shooting (3 of 4 3-pointers). UCF 60, MERCER 45: Celeste Hudson had 13 points and eight rebounds as the host Golden Knights won their fifth in a row.
FAU 72, GEORGIA ST. 71: Shontavia Williams had 24 points as the Owls won their third straight home game.
NO. 2 LSU 91, ARKANSAS 45: Seimone Augustus had 16 points and eight rebounds in 19 minutes to lead the host Tigers to their most lopsided conference win.
NO. 3 OHIO ST. 52, INDIANA 30: Jessica Davenport had 12 points and 10 rebounds as the Buckeyes snapped a four-game skid in Bloomington.
NO. 6 RUTGERS 74, PROVIDENCE 40: Host Scarlet Knights coach C. Vivian Stringer tied for third place with her 708th career win.
NO. 7 UT 81, AUBURN 71: Shyra Ely scored 20 and Tye'sha Fluker had 18 points and 11 rebounds as the visiting Vols rode a late surge.
NO. 12 MINNESOTA 73, MICHIGAN 49: Janel McCarville had 25 points and nine rebounds as the host Gophers bounced back from a loss at Michigan State.
NO. 14 BC 76, W. VA. 75: Clare Droesch hit a free throw with .2 seconds left to give the host Eagles their 12th win in 13 games.
NO. 16 MARYLAND 63, UVA 60: Crystal Langhorne had 16 points and 17 rebounds, and an injured Shay Doron sparked a late surge for the host Terrapins.
OLE MISS 66, NO. 17 VANDY 60: Armintie Price scored 18 as the host Rebels snapped an 11-game losing streak to the Commodores.
NO. 23 VA. TECH 81, CLEMSON 66: Kirby Copeland's 15 helped the visiting Hokies ended a two-game skid.
PENN ST. 77, NO. 24 PURDUE 54: Jess Strom scored 23 and Tanisha Wright 22 for the host Nittany Lions.
