(8:22 gone in the second half) The Lady Tigers outscored the Gamecocks
20-5 in the first 12:26 to take a 44-32 advantage with 7:34 remaining in
the game. Forns had seven points in this Lady Tiger rally and Floyd hit two
three point field goals.


"I am very pleased with the effort of our basketball team," said Clemson
Head Coach Jim Davis. It is always good to come from behind in the second
half and win. We did a better job taking care of the basketball in the
second half. The tempo of the game was in our favor. We play a lot of
players and I was pleased with the way we ran them down. Erin did a great
job with her great post defense. Nuria played one of her best defensive
games. I am very proud of our team--with the desire and with the way we
played. Erin is a veteran player and with her steal and layup right
before the half, we built on this momentum at the start of the second
half."
