Tournament Central Presented by Buffalo Wild Wings

SPOKANE, Wash. – The third-seeded Hurricanes will face No. 11 seed and host Gonzaga in the second round of the NCAA Tournament Monday at 9:40 p.m. EST. The game will be aired live on ESPN2.

Miami moved on to the second round with a decisive 70-41 victory over No. 14 seed Idaho State.

Shenise Johnson proved why she is the most veratile player in the country with 20 points, six rebounds, four assists and four steals. Pepper Wilson also had a big game, leading all players with 14 rebounds to go with her nine points.

Gonzaga provided the tournament’s first upset, handling the sixth-seeded Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 86-73.

 

The Hurricanes have faced the Bulldogs only once in program history, coming away with a 79-52 win in the Northern Lights Invitational in Anchorage in 1987.

Wilson Knows Washington
As a freshman at Pittsburgh in 2008-09, Pepper Wilson was a member of the Panthers team that went on to the Sweet 16. Pitt was sent to Seattle for the first and second rounds and defeated Wyoming before facing Gonzaga in the second round. That contest came down to the final minute, as the Panters came away with a five-point victory. In the game against the Zags, Wilson scored 10 points to go with seven rebounds and four blocks in only 14 minutes of play.

Obtaining Greatnes
In Miami’s last contest, senior Shenise Johnson became just the second player in NCAA Division I women’s basketball history to score 2,000 points, pull down 1,000 rebounds, dish out 500 assists and have 400 steals in a career.

After a nationwide survey, it was found that Stanford’s only Old Dominion’s Nancy Lieberman (1976-1980) is the only other women to accomplish the feat.
