No. 13/11 Florida State Rolls Past Sacred Heart

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Sacred Heart women's basketball team (2-3) fell to host Florida State (5-0), 101-52, Friday evening inside of the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center.

How it happened…

The backcourt tandem of Erin Storck and Tykera Carter mirrored threes, both from the right wing, on consecutive Pioneers' possessions awarding the visitors a four-point advantage at the 8:50 mark of the first, 6-2. Two Seminoles' free-throws followed before the foe cashed in on two strong takes to the bucket to not only deadlock the score but claim custody of a lead they would not surrender. 

The numbers…

Storck finished with 16 points, just one shy of her personal best. The junior hit 60-percent of her tries from the floor but tied her career-high from distance drilling four triples from beyond the arc.

Adrianne Hagood scored 12 points off the bench draining three shots including one from distance. Of her 11 chances at the charity stripe, the freshman netted five while contributing three boards and one assist in 27 minutes out on the floor.

Carter swished a pair of field goals and performed a perfect trip at the line for her seven points, one rebound, and just one turnover through 24 minutes of action.

Candice Leatherwood, in her return, drilled a shot from the outside, netted three free-throws and pulled down three boards for her six-point finish.

Abigail Kangudie continues to show tenacity inside, crashing the boards eight times to lead the visiting group, splitting her total on each side of the floor.

Up next…

The Pioneers return to their hardwood and host Hofstra, Thursday, November 30 inside of the William H. Pitt Center. The 6:00 pm tip will be the first in a brief two-game home-stand.
