Duke clinches ACC with win

(Continued)

COLLEGE PARK, Md. —

Virginia Tech 71, No. 19 Florida St. 52: Monet Tellier matched her season high with 24 points and Virginia Tech snapped a four-game losing streak with a win over Florida State.

The Hokies (9-18, 3-13) held the Atlantic Coast Conference’s best offensive team to 32.8-percent shooting (21 of 64). The Seminoles came in leading the ACC with 78.5 points per game, but fell short of that for the second game in a row after scoring a season low in a 61-50 loss to Duke on Friday.

Florida State (20-7, 10-6) is the only Division I team with five players averaging double figures, but Morgan Toles was the only scorer in double digits with 13 points.

Reserve Uju Ugoka added 21 points and 12 rebounds for Virginia Tech.

No. 20 Colorado 68, Washington 61: Arielle Roberson scored 16 points and senior Chucky Jeffery grabbed 13 rebounds in her final regular-season home game, helping Colorado hold off Washington.

The Buffaloes (22-5, 11-5 Pac-12) won their seventh straight game, moving a step closer to securing one of the first-round byes for the conference tournament.

Kristi Kingma scored 19 points for the Huskies (19-8, 11-5). Jazmine Davis was held in check most of the afternoon, scoring just nine points. She entered the game averaging 19.6.

In addition to her big day on the boards, Jeffery finished with 11 points and four assists. But she also had seven turnovers, which she attributed to nerves on senior night.

No. 22 Purdue 75, Minnesota 63: Courtney Moses scored 23 points, and KK Houser and Drey Mingo added 14 apiece to lead Purdue past Minnesota.

Sam Ostarello chipped in with 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Boilermakers (20-7, 9-5 Big Ten), who had lost two in a row. Purdue is tied for third place in the Big Ten.

Rachel Banham led Minnesota (16-12, 5-9) with 21 points. Micaella Riche had 13 points and nine rebounds, Sari Noga added 12 points and Kionna Kellogg scored 10 for the Gophers.

Minnesota trailed 65-63 with 3 1/2 minutes left, but the Gophers didn’t score again. Purdue scored the final 10 points, the last eight from the free throw line.
