TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Alana Beard had 23 points and Iciss Tillis 19 – and
they combined for all but eight of Duke’s second-half points – as the
fifth-ranked Blue Devils beat Florida State 73-60 Monday night.
Beard and Tillis, both freshmen, totaled 36 points in the final 20 minutes
as Duke pulled away in a game that was tied at the half. They also sparked an
8-0 run in the middle of the second half that put Duke ahead 48-39.
The teams were tied 29 at halftime, after Florida State led for most of the
first half. Duke used a 10-1 run late in the half to take a three-point lead
before the Seminoles tied it.
Wyckoff led Florida State with 11 first-half points, while Torres and
Traylor added five apiece. Georgia Schweitzer led Duke with nine first-half
points, and Parent scored eight.
