Women’s Basketball

George Mason limited the University of Miami women’s basketball team to a season-low 25 percent shooting to hand the Hurricanes a 60-35 loss Tuesday night at the Patriot Center.

Junior Tamara James led UM with 16 points while adding eight rebounds, but as a team, the Hurricanes managed only 13-of-52 on field goals on the night to fall to the Patriots (1-2).

GMU had three players to score double figures, led by Tracy Ann Holness, who also posted seven rebounds in the win.

The Patriots held UM, who would miss their first 11 shots, scoreless through the first 11 minutes of the first half, opening the game on a 17-0 run.

James scored the Hurricanes’ first bucket at the 10:39 mark, but GMU capitalized on a 3-of-26 shooting performance from the field paired with 10 turnovers by Miami to take a 27-8 lead into the half.

Miami scored the first five points to start second half, but managed just six more in the half’s first 14 minutes to trail 44-19 with just over five minutes remaining. The Patriots would hang on to the win, downing UM, 60-35.

The loss marks the first time in 26 seasons, the Hurricanes have scored 35 or fewer points. The last time UM scored 35 or less was during the 1978-79 season when Miami fell at South Florida 72-33.

The Hurricanes return to action Saturday, heading cross-town to take on inner-city rival Florida International at Golden Panther arena at 7 p.m.
