Women’s Basketball

Ivory Latta’s shot was falling and Camille Little took care of the defense. North Carolina needed little else against Miami on Monday.

Latta scored 17 of her 24 points in the first half and Little shut down Miami’s Tamara James to lift the ninth-ranked Tar Heels past the Hurricanes 83-52.

Little finished with 15 points and seven rebounds for the Tar Heels (14-2, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), but her defense against the nation’s leading scorer was the highlight of an easy league win.

James came in averaging 24.5 points per game, but missed her first eight shots and finished with just 12. She didn’t score until early in the second half, when her team was down 28 points.

With James misfiring, Miami (8-8, 0-3) shot just 8-for-32 in the first half. North Carolina shot 59 percent to build a 25-point lead at the break and led by as many as 36 points late.

Little, a 6-foot-1 forward, used her long arms and mobility to give James trouble all day.

James didn’t score her first basket until a transition lay-up that made it 53-27 with 14:48 left. She finished 4-for-15 from the floor, including 0-for-6 from the 3-point arc.

Latta certainly got the Tar Heels rolling on the offensive end, going 10-for-16 from the field and hitting four 3-pointers.

Men’s Tennis

Sophomore Josh Cohen and junior Tim Krebs of the University of Miami men’s tennis team were ranked 26th and 123rd, respectively, in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s first spring rankings of 2005, as released Thursday by the ITA.

Cohen, a native of Weston, Fla., posted an overall record of 8-4 during fall play this season and was ranked eighth individually in the southeast region by the ITA. Cohen also claimed the USTA National Open Indoor Championship in December, taking the title for the second consecutive year.

Last season, as a freshman, Cohen when 21-9 overall in singles play while going 13-4 at the No. 1 position in dual play.

As a team, first-year head coach Mario Rincon and the Hurricanes were ranked 48th nationally.

Entering their first season in the tradition-rich Atlantic Coast Conference, the Hurricanes will face 13 teams ranked in the ITA’s first top-75 spring rankings, including No. 3 Florida and ACC opponents No. 9 Duke and No. 10 Virginia.

UM will open the spring dual season Wednesday, Jan. 26 taking on in-state foe Florida Atlantic at 3 p.m. at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center.
