Senior guard Renee Taylor, one of four UM starters to score double figures, led the Hurricanes with 18 points against GSU.
Junior guard Albrey Grimsley followed Taylor with 15 points, her highest scoring outing since back-to-back 15-point games in mid January of her freshman year. Grimsley had arguably the one of the best complete games of any Hurricane against GSU, adding seven rebounds with four assists and no turnovers in the victory.
