    Speedy guards Williams and Shenise Johnson, the top two scorers in the ACC, led the way for Miami. Williams had 21 of her points in the second half and made 6 3-pointers. Johnson had 13 of her 22 points in the second half.

    Miami's defense held BC way under its 84.9 scoring average coming into the game.
