ACC Women: Cards crush Clemson in second round

clemwhoops-0Fifth-seeded Louisville eliminated Clemson in Thursday’s second round of the ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament 68-46 at the HTC Center in Conway.

Louisville stormed to a 22-2 lead in the first 5:23 of the game and remained ahead by double-digits the rest of the way.

All-ACC first-teamer Myisha Hines-Allen already had a double-figure scoring game by the halftime break with 11 points, leading the Cardinals to a 16-point lead at intermission. She and fellow All-ACC selection Asia Durr led Louisville’s scoring with 17 points apiece.

Hines-Allen connected on 7-of-10 shots from the floor as Louisville shot 49 percent as a team. Freshman Jazmine Jones added 12 points.

* #8 Virginia 61, #9 Wake Forest 44: The Cavaliers built an 11-point halftime lead, then opened the third quarter by scoring six unanswered points to take full control.

UVA’s Jocelyn Willoughby led all scorers with 17 points and went 7-for-11 from the floor.

Virginia earned a trip to the ACC Tournament quarterfinals after falling in the second round each of the previous three years.

* #7 Miami 87, #10 Georgia Tech 71: Miami shot 65 percent in the first half while building a 22-point lead and wound up shooting 64 percent of the game

Keyona Hayes led the Hurricanes with 16 points, while Adrienne Motley added 15 and Emese Hof had 14.

Georgia Tech’s Kaylan Pugh led all scorers with 19 points.

* #6 Syracuse 83, #14 North Carolina 64: The teams combined to connect on a tournament single-game record 22 shots from 3-point range.

ACC Player of the Year Alexis Peterson led all scorers with 29 points and went 5-for-9 from beyond the arc. Peterson went 4-for-5 from 3-point range and scored 20 points in the first half, leading the Orange to a 45-34 lead at the break.
