Tigers erase deficit, defeat Canes 74-68

The University of Miami women’s basketball team’s 13-point lead vanished in the second half as Clemson rallied for a 74-68 victory Monday afternoon at the BankUnited Center.

It was the first Atlantic Coast Conference game of the season for both teams.

Midway through the second half, the Tigers (10-4, 1-0) went on a 22-2 run over the course of six minutes and 10 seconds to take a seven-point lead.

Only two Canes scored in double digits as freshman guard Riquna Williams notched a career-high 23 points and freshman forward Shenise Johnson, who was named ACC Rookie of the Week, finished with 16 points and seven rebounds.

Three Tigers scored in double figures, led by freshman center Shaniqua Pauldo’s 15 off the bench.

Miami (10-5, 0-1) heads on the road to take on fifth-ranked Duke at 7 p.m. Friday.
