Miami never trailed. A 7-2 spurt near the end of the first quarter, including a 3-pointer by Laura Cornelius, gave the Hurricanes a seven-point lead after one. Motley's layup with 4:46 left in the first half completed a 14-5 run and Miami led 44-31 at intermission.
FIU scored the first 10 points of the second half – including Hudson's 3 on the first possession – to trim the deficit to three.
But the Hurricanes scored the next 15 points – punctuated by a Thomas 3-pointer – and FIU didn't threaten again.
