North Carolina's women's basketball team, on the cusp of a second overtime, had the ball in its go-to player's hands against Florida State on Sunday.
Facing a 80-78 deficit in overtime on Senior Day at Carmichael Auditorium, with seconds and her home season dwindling away, senior forward LaQuanda Barksdale had the rock down low.
Posting up on Seminole forward Brooke Wyckoff, Barksdale attempted a fall away shot on the right baseline.
But meeting her was Wyckoff, who timed Barksdale's shot perfectly and came up with a clean block.
"I wanted to have the ball in my hands really bad," Barksdale said. "(Wyckoff) got a good block."
Barksdale finished with 30 points and 15 rebounds on 12-of-24 shooting. She dropped 19 points in the second half and overtime, and her point total for the game was just two off her season high of 32 that was set against Elon on Dec. 28.
Barksdale stepped up her game after the half. She got things going to open the second half, canning a wing 3-pointer on the Tar Heels' first shot attempt to cut the Seminoles' halftime lead to 35-34.
Barksdale displayed all facets of her game to the Seminoles, hitting post-up shots, layups and jumpers when the Tar Heels needed them.
"That is why we were going to her," UNC coach Sylvia Hatchell said of Barksdale's hot hand.
