Troistorrent, Switzlerland – Seniors Brooke Wyckoff and Levy Torres each
scored a team-high 19 points as four Seminoles tallied double figures in
Florida State’s 108-79 victory over Troistorrents, Thursday night. With
the
victory, the FSU women’s basketball team is a perfect 3-0 on its European
Tour, with one game remaining against Nice University on Saturday.

“It was a good challenge to play a higher level team for our third
straight
game,” Head Coach Sue Semrau said. “Exhaustion had started to set in, our
bodies were sore and the altitude was high. It gave us an even bigger
challenge than just the team itself. I thought we responded pretty well.”

The Seminoles came out running and took a quick 7-2 lead, but behind solid
three-point shooting, Troistorrents came back to take a 10-9 lead.

Despite
seven strong points from both sophomore Lauren Bradley and Torres, the
Seminoles trailed 26-25 at the conclusion of the first quarter. The Tribe
went on a 9-0 run to open the second quarter, which opened up the game and
the Seminoles would not trail again.

FSU built a 12-point lead by halftime, at 58-46, and was led by Bradley
and
Torres, who had 13 points apiece. By the end of the third quarter, all 10
Seminoles had scored, and Florida State had a commanding 84-59 advantage.
Wyckoff also led the team with nine rebounds and added seven assists while
Torres was a perfect 9-for-9 from the field as the Tribe took the 29-point
win.


“We came out and had a big second quarter and some people really stepped
up,” Semrau. “Levys (Torres) went 9-for-9. She’s looking very strong and
agile. Brooke (Wyckoff) took advantage of the fact that this was the game
she was going to get significant minutes and she came out and gave a
stellar
performance, going 8-for-12 from the floor with nine rebounds, in about a
20
minute performance. I thought those two really sparked us. Again, we
carried through to the end of the game. When we were up by as many as 20,
we could have had a let down, but instead we had nearly a 30-point win.”

Also scoring in double figures were Bradley with 15 and sophomore Katelyn
Vujas with 13 points. Junior April Traylor led the team with nine assists
while junior Lakesha Springle recorded four steals. The Seminoles shot 56
percent from the field, 83 percent from the free throw line and 44 percent
from three-point range.
