Seminoles' depth overwhelms Terrapins

TALLAHASSEE — Florida State had too much balance and too deep a bench for Maryland.

Five players scored in double figures and reserves Chelsea Davis and Chasity Clayton combined for 26 points Sunday to spark the 15th-ranked Seminoles to a 72-66 win over the No. 16 Terrapins.

Davis and Clayton outscored Maryland's bench players 26-7.

"I don't think that anybody cares who gets the credit," Seminoles coach Sue Semrau said. "They just go to work and they work together."

FSU (22-5, 10-2) will win at least a share of its third straight ACC title with victories at Miami on Thursday and at home against Clemson on Sunday. FSU is tied for first in the conference with Miami and Duke.

Alyssa Thomas led Maryland (21-6, 7-5 ACC) with a career-high 26 points.

UF 78, MISS. ST. 63: Lanita Bartley had a career-high 23 points and eight rebounds and Jennifer George tied her career best with 21 points as the host Gators (15-13, 5-9 SEC) snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Bulldogs (10-16, 2-12).

NO. 6 XAVIER 77, DUQUESNE 51: Ta'Shia Phillips had 26 points and 11 rebounds for the host Musketeers (23-2, 12-0), who moved back into a tie with Temple for first in the Atlantic 10.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
