EL PASO, Texas (AP) FIU's Jerica Coley started Wednesday No. 9 on the NCAA's career Division I women's career scoring list.

She ended it at No. 5.

Coley scored 42 points Wednesday, increasing her career total to 3,054 and lifting the 13th-seeded Panthers past fifth-seeded East Carolina 87-75 in the second round of the Conference USA tournament.

Coley is averaging 29.6 points this season. During Wednesday's game alone, she passed Southern California's Cheryl Miller (3,018), Tennessee's Chamique Holdsclaw (3,025), Connecticut's Maya Moore (3,036) and Delaware's Elena Delle Donne (3,039) on the list.


Drake's Lorri Bauman (3,115) is No. 4 on the list. Coley would likely need at least two more games to have a realistic chance of catching her.
