The summary on the ladies with Florida State winning at North Carolina on Monday night:
No. 15 Florida State Defeats No. 9 North Carolina, 83-73

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) – Jacinta Monroe scored 16 points and No. 15 Florida State held on to beat No. 9 North Carolina 83-73 on Monday night after nearly blowing a 19-point lead.

Courtney Ward added 13 points for the Seminoles (19-4, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who had their big second-half lead whittled all the way down to a point three times in the final minutes. But Florida State put together an eight-point spurt in the final 3 minutes to finally pull away, sealing their first win in Chapel Hill since the 2000-01 season.

It was quite a way to bounce back from a humbling 30-point loss at Duke on Friday night, a game in which the Seminoles fell way behind in the opening minutes and never mounted a challenge.
