IOWA CITY, IA - Sophomore Adrienne Motley scored 30 points and 11th-seeded Miami beat No. 6 Washington 86-80 on Friday in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament in Iowa City.
Jessica Thomas had 19 points and Michelle Woods added 17 for the Hurricanes (20-12), who pulled off the upset in part by shooting 7 of 12 from 3-point range.
Motley hit a jumper in the lane to give Miami a 73-71 lead, and four free throws put the Hurricanes up six with a minute left.
Kelsey Plum and Talia Walton each had 17 points to lead Washington (23-10). But Plum and fellow star guard Jazmine Davis combined to shoot just 10 of 30 from the floor.
