From UNCW

WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Junior forward Amy Griffin made 9-of-17 shots from the floor and scored a game-high 22 points as La Salle earned its third win in a row, a 64-48 victory over UNCW to close out the Hampton Inn Thanksgiving Classic at Trask Coliseum on Sunday afternoon.

The Explorers, who also edged Miami (Ohio) in the tournament on Saturday, evened their record at 3-3 while UNCW dropped to 2-3 after suffering its second straight defeat.

Griffin was one of three La Salle players to score in double figures in the victory. Senior guard Jasmine Alston tallied 11 points with eight rebounds and six assists while senior forward Micahya Owens came off the bench to score 13 points.

Junior guard Diamond Willis paced UNCW with 10 points while redshirt senior forward Jordan Henry nearly recorded a double-double with eight points and a season-high 11 rebounds.    

How It Happened: La Salle held UNCW without a field goal for nearly eight minutes to close out the first quarter while building a 15-14 edge the Explorers did not relinquish. Griffin tallied 10 of her 22 points in the first half as the Explorers built a 33-26 advantage at the intermission. UNCW trimmed the deficit to 36-34 before La Salle pulled away in the final 16 minutes for the win.
