Posted: Sunday, December 10, 2000

CLEMSON, S.C. -- Chrissy Floyd scored 23 points as Clemson upset No. 3 Duke 93-75 in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams on Saturday.

''Overrated, overrated,'' Clemson fans chanted as the clock wound down.

The Lady Tigers (5-2, 1-0) had six players in double figures in the victory.

No. 4 Notre Dame 72, No. 6 Purdue 61

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Alicia Ratay scored 19 points, including a pair of 3-pointers late in the second half to spark a 14-5 run, as Notre Dame beat Purdue to extend its school-record home winning streak to 27 games.

It was the first win for Notre Dame (8-0) over Purdue (8-2) since 1997, and only its third win against the Boilermakers in 12 tries. The Irish also extended their home non-conference winning streak to 19.

No. 7 Iowa State 93, Liberty 72

AMES, Iowa -- Freshman Erica Junod made seven of eight 3-point shots and finished with a season-high 23 points to lead Iowa State over Liberty.

Angie Welle scored 14 points, Megan Taylor added 13 points and 11 rebounds, and Erica Haugen scored 12 points, all from 3-point range.

No. 21 NC State 59,

No. 8 Texas Tech 51

AUSTIN, Texas -- Carisse Moody scored 14 points and Adeola Olanrewaju had 11 as North Carolina State used a stifling defense to beat Texas Tech.

Daphne Hutcherson's back-to-back layups gave the Wolfpack (7-1) their first lead at 53-49 and NC State held Texas Tech (5-1) without a field goal over the final 7:30 of the game.

No. 25 Texas 82, No. 10 Oregon 58

AUSTIN, Texas -- Tracy Cook scored 23 points as Texas beat Oregon to improve to 9-1.

Cook, Texas' tallest player at 6-foot-2, was 9-of-12 from the floor, often stepping out for short jumpers over the Ducks' larger post players, to pace the Longhorns' 51 percent shooting effort.

No. 15 Oklahoma 101,

Southern Methodist 71

NORMAN, Okla. -- LaNeisha Caufield scored 17 points as Oklahoma defeated Southern Methodist.

Stacey Dales scored 14 points and Sunny Hardeman and Jamie Talbert each added 13 for the Sooners (5-2), who led 51-26 at halftime.

No. 20 Florida 85, Central Florida 44

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Reserve Vanessa Hayden scored 19 points and had 11 rebounds as No. 20 Florida continued its best start in five seasons with a victory over Central Florida.

No. 24 Virginia 77, Wake Forest 61

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Schuye LaRue scored 11 of her 19 points during two key second-half runs as Virginia beat Wake Forest in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams.

LaRue sparked a 14-2 run to give Virginia (7-3) a 49-40 lead with 13:42 left. She had three steals and four points during the run.

Wake Forest (5-2) pulled within five on a basket by Kirkpatrick with just over seven minutes left, but Virginia went on a 17-4 run to take a 77-59 lead with 1:33 left. LaRue had seven points during the run.

Kristen Shaffer led Wake Forest with 16 points.
