LSU balance, defense too much for Hampton, 73-54
Wednesday, Nov 20, 2013

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP)—Theresa Plaisance scored 14 points and grabbed 12 rebounds and reserves Shanece McKinney and Jasmine Rhodes also scored 14 as No. 15 LSU rolled to a 73-54 win over Hampton Wednesday night.

The victory avenged a 67-58 upset at Hampton last year for the Lady Tigers (3-1). Hampton (2-1) was limited to 30 percent shooting and only made 7 of 18 free throws, making it difficult to take advantage of the 22 LSU turnovers the Tigers forced.

Both teams started cold and Kenia Cole’s 3-pointer allowed Hampton to nurse a 14-10 lead with under 9 minutes left in the first half. Then the Tigers went on a 15-1 run to make it 25-15 and they built that to 34-20 at the half.

Nicole Hamilton scored a career-high 27 points for Hampton and Malia Tate-DeFreitas added 19, but the rest of the team combined for just eight points.
