CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) Adrienne Motley and Erykah Davenport scored 15 points apiece, and No. 11 Miami outscored Coppin State 16-2 in the fourth quarter for a 75-35 victory on Monday night in the Miami Holiday Tournament.
Jessica Thomas banked in a 3 to give Miami a 12-0 lead and the Hurricanes cruised after making their first seven field-goal attempts. Miami built a 39-23 halftime lead after Motley, Davenport and Emese Hof combined for 30 points on 12-of-15 shooting.
Miami led 59-33 after three quarters and held Coppin State to one free throw at the 6:18 mark of the fourth and another with 34 seconds left.
Davenport, who’s career-high is 16 points, scored her 15th point with 7:46 left in the third and only played 18 minutes for Miami (10-1). She was 6 of 7 from the floor and Motley hit three of Miami’s nine 3-pointers.
