Lattimore’s Double-Double Propels Miami Past Boston University

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – For the third straight game, the University of Miami women’s basketball team eclipsed the 80-point mark, defeating the Boston University Terriers, 81-46, Sunday afternoon at the Watsco Center.

Sophomore Latasha Lattimore put together a breakout game, tallying a team-leading 25 points (10-of-14) and 10 rebounds for her first double-double in a Miami uniform and the second of her career.

“What a game and what a performance by Latasha Lattimore. I’m very happy for her and her double-double,” associate head coach Fitzroy Anthony said. “We shared the ball really well and had 23 assists as a team. As a coach, that’s really fun to watch and be a part of.”

For the third straight game, graduate student Destiny Harden recorded double-digit points, totaling 14 in the contest to go along with four rebounds and four assists. Freshman Lazaria Spearman finished the afternoon with 10 points and eight rebounds, marking the first double-digit outing of her career.

It was all Hurricanes in the first half as Miami outscored BU, 40-21, with seven Hurricanes accounting for a bucket. The Hurricanes forced 14 turnovers in the first 20 minutes of action, turning defense into offense with 13 points off turnovers.
