Tigers, Heels win debuts at ACC Women’s Tournament

acc-day1Sophomore Danielle Edwards sank the second of two free-throw attempts with 3.9 seconds to play to #13 seeded Clemson to a 67-66 victory over #12 Virginia Tech in the first round of the ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament at the HTC Center in Conway.

Edwards scored the final five points of the game for Clemson, which built an eight-point lead with less than six minutes remaining but had to fend off the Hokies, who tied the game three times in the final 1:36 but could not regain the lead.

Clemson overcame a standout afternoon by Virginia Tech sophomore Regan Magarity, who led all scorers with 24 points and pulled down a game-high 14 rebounds. Chanette Hicks added 20 points for the Hokies, and Samantha Hill finished with 14.

Edwards scored 17 points to lead four Tigers in double figures. Nelly Perry added 16, while freshman Kobi Thornton had 13 and Aliyah Collier 10. Jaia Alexander had a team-high 10 rebounds.

Clemson posted its first ACC Tournament win since 2014.

* #14 North Carolina 72, #11 Pitt 60: Junior Jamie Cherry poured in a career-high 32 points as the Tar Heels avenged an overtime loss to the Panthers in last year’s opening round.

Cherry went 9-for-18 from the floor, knocked down five 3-pointers and went 9-for-12 from the foul line. Paris Kea also stepped up with 21 points and seven assists for UNC.

The Panthers led by four points at intermission, but the Tar Heels opened the third quarter with a 10-0 run to take a 47-41 lead. Then, after Pitt closed to within 51-49, UNC countered with 10 more unanswered points and stayed in control.

* #10 Georgia Tech 71, #15 Boston College 67: Georgia Tech saw a six-point halftime lead slip away midway through the third quarter, but the Yellow Jackets regrouped by the end of the period and kept the Eagles at arm’s length the rest of the way

Sophomore guard Kaylan Pugh led a balanced Georgia Tech scoring effort with 20 points and ACC Freshman of the Year Francesca Pan added 14.

Sophomore center Mariella Fansoula scored a game-high 21 points to lead Boston College, and also led the Eagles on the boards with nine rebounds. Kailey Edwards finished with 13 points.
