Duke rolls rival UNC

(Continued)

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. —

Kamiko Williams scored 14 points to lead the Lady Vols (17-5, 8-1) before leaving with 16:59 left with an apparent leg injury. Tennessee has lost two of three and had its 12-game winning streak in the conference snapped.

The Tigers’ last victory over a ranked team came March 5, 2011, against then-No. 23 Iowa State.

No. 10 Maryland 85, Boston College 62: COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Tianna Hawkins scored 26 points and Alyssa Thomas added 24 to lead Maryland past Boston College.

Thomas added 12 rebounds for her 13th double-double of the season as the Terrapins (18-3, 9-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) moved to 12-0 at home with their eighth straight win overall.

Kristen Doherty led Boston College (9-12, 3-7) with 18 points before fouling out with 5:43 to play. Kerri Shields added 14 for the Eagles.

Thomas became the 16th player in the program’s history to score 1,400 points. The junior now has 1,405 points in her career.

No. 15 S. Carolina 59, Auburn 51: COLUMBIA, S.C. — Reserve Khadijah Sessions had a career-high 19 points and South Carolina won its fifth straight game with a win over Auburn.

Sessions was 5 of 9 from the field and 8 of 9 at the foul line for the Gamecocks (19-3, 7-2 Southeastern Conference). Tiffany Mitchell and Aleighsa Welch each added 10 points.

Reigning SEC Player of the Week Ieasia Walker pitched in eight points on just 2-of-7 shooting for South Carolina, though she did dish out five assists and record four steals.

No. 17 Dayton 72, Richmond 64: RICHMOND, Va. — Olivia Applewhite came off the bench to score 18 points and grab 11 rebounds as Dayton remained unbeaten in the Atlantic 10 with a win over Richmond.

Andrea Hoover scored 16 points and Ally Mallot had 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Flyers (19-1, 7-0), whose first six conference opponents had averaged just 46.5 points.

The Spiders (12-11, 2-5) battled evenly for most of the first half and led 17-16 after Becka Wann’s layup 12:28 before halftime.

Applewhite responded with a 3-pointer, however, to put Dayton ahead to stay.
