Last Time Out
A furious comeback fell just short as Miami snuck out of town with a 79-78 victory last Thursday.
Chelsea Douglas' three-pointer with 48 seconds remaining gave the Deacons the lead but after exchanging baskets, Miami's Suriya McGuire scored with five seconds remaining to give the Hurricanes the victory.
Douglas led the Deacs with a game-high 19 points. She made a career-high tying five three-pointers for the second-straight game.
Senior Lakevia Boykin continued to impress as she finished with 16 points on 7-of-13 from the floor.
Fellow senior Mykala Walker scored all of her season-high 15 points in the second half and she also grabbed six rebounds.
