No. 5 Baylor routs Kent State 84-42 in Gulf Coast Showcase

Ohio State responded with a 9-0 run, starting with back-to-back threes, and ending with a Mavunga layup with 3:42 to go drawing the lead back to seven, only to once against see the Orange tie it in the final minute at 72 on a three from Alexis Peterson with 40 seconds to go. Nina Davis scored 16, Alexis Jones 15, and Beatrice Mompremier added 14 points in the rout. "It's all about us gelling, about team chemistry".

"I was really happy with the game today - it was not easy to have to turnaround after finishing at nearly 10 play at 1:30, but our guys were focused and really hungry", head coach Jennifer Rizzotti said.

The Buckeyes got 12 from Mitchell in the half to lead all scorers, and 11 from Calhoun, shooting 51.4 percent from the floor as a team while holding Syracuse to just 30 percent.

- No. 18 DePaul made 19 3-pointers to roll past No. 11 Syracuse 108-84 in the third-place game.

"I don't like giving up 72 points and I sure don't like giving up 15 3's", Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said.

Peterson finished with a game-high 29 points - including 5-of-10 from three-point range.

The rise was announced by Chancellor Philip Hammond in his Autumn Statement speech today (23 November). The standard rate of insurance premium tax (IPT) is to increase to 12% from 10% from June 2017.

"I thought it was a great challenge for our team", Ohio State coach Kevin McGuff said. "I have the three really big ones and two that are somewhat undersized, but we go to the boards hard".

UVM continued to claw back into the game in the second half and trimmed the deficit to 57-55 at the 10:33 mark.

Gray led the American Athletic Conference in scoring previous year with 16 points per game and looks to repeat it by averaging 22.5 points per game early on in this season. "Today I focused on being aggressive, getting to the rim, and drawing some fouls to help the team".

The rest of the trip for the Lady Bears? The Duke transfer scored 19 in the game to go along with seven rebounds, and seems to have found her niche within the offense. "So now we play for a championship tomorrow and maybe it will be more of a conventional matchup with post players that stay inside more". "We need our backups to come in and keep pushing and let the tempo not drop, and they did an incredible job at scoring, rebounding, and just helping us out really and giving us a rest".

"I feel like that's going to be another tough game for us", Prince said.

The Lady Bears will advance to the Gulf Coast Showcase Championship game tomorrow at 7:30 pm against the victor of tonight's matchup between Ohio State and Syracuse.
