Women's basketball: USF Bulls beat Stetson Hatters 80-42

TAMPA — Playing in her first game since the 2008-09 WNIT final, sixth-year senior Porche Grant had 10 points and 10 rebounds in 23 minutes and keyed a first-half run that lifted USF to an 80-42 victory over Stetson on Wednesday night at the Sun Dome.

Grant, who redshirted last season because of her pregnancy, had eight points and three rebounds during a 15-4 run that ended the first half and gave the Bulls (2-1) a 35-23 lead. The power forward led USF in rebounding in the two seasons before she took last year off.

USF continued to pile on, outscoring the Hatters (1-1) 44-19 in the second half.

Andrea Smith and Kaneisha Saunders had 13 points each, Leondra Doomes-Stephens 12 and Jasmine Wynne 10 for the Bulls. Smith added three steals and three assists.

Sasha Sims and Tierra Brown had 11 points each for Stetson.
