Led by junior pitcher Andrew Cabezas, UM (12-11, 6-3 ACC) is back over .500 for the first time since starting the season 2-1. Cabezas (2-2), who started the season as a closer and moved into the starting rotation March 18 against Duke, pitched six quality innings.
Sophomore pitcher Evan McKendry led UM with another strong outing, tying a career-high with 10 strikeouts and allowing just one run in six innings. He got plenty of run support from freshman catcher Isaac Quiñones, who had four RBIs on the day.
Evan McKendry (1-1) picked up his first win of the season and the fifth of his career, recovering nicely from the previous weekend when he surrendered four earned runs in a costly fourth inning. He took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, when Jonathan India doubled on a 3-2 count.
Senior forward/center Erykah Davenport finished with 21 points and 13 rebounds – five came on offense – to lead the Canes (13-6, 3-3 ACC). The team captain from Decatur, Georgia, recorded her eighth career double-double. Six of them have come this season.
