The North Carolina women’s basketball team dropped its ACC opener on the road against No. 11 Florida State (13-1, 1-0 ACC) on Sunday. The Tar Heels (10-4, 0-1 ACC) were never really in the 103-65 blowout.
After a tight first period, Florida State blew open the game with a dominant second quarter. The Seminoles outscored the Tar Heels 35-15 in the deciding frame, establishing a lead that proved to be insurmountable.
Who stood out?
Imani Wright and Shakayla Thomas combined for 55 points to lead Florida State to the big win. Thomas, who was named to the preseason All-ACC team, added 13 rebounds to register a double double. Guards Nausia Woolfolk, A.J. Alix and Nicole Ekhomu also had double-digit scoring games, the 13th time in 14 games at least four Seminoles have scored in double figures.
