Jackets overpower Seminoles

Published Sep. 28, 2005

Florida State, playing without two starters, had three players foul out in a 92-70 loss to Georgia Tech Saturday.

A power surge knocked out the lights in the arena, delaying the start of the game. The problem recurred with 13:55 remaining in the second half and FSU trailing 49-42. After a 23-minute delay, the Yellow Jackets (9-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) went on a 14-4 run, all but ending the contest.

FSU, which led 16-6 in the first half, shot only 28 percent from the field in the second half and made only 21 of 31 free throws for the game.

Brooke Wycoff, who fouled out, finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds for FSU. Tamara Gracey added 12 points.

The Seminoles (5-7) are winless in three ACC contests.

TAMPA 96, MERRIMACK 72: Missy Mack scored 31 points and Trysta Morenz a career-high 30. The Spartans coasted at home thanks to 11 three-pointers. Mack hit seven _ one shy of the school record _ and added 10 rebounds.

ECKERD 57, WILLIAM JEWELL 52: Katie Moor scored 10 of her game-high 17 points in the second half as the Tritons rallied at home. Reserve Felicia Felton scored 12 points for Eckerd.
