Florida State women’s basketball coach Brooke Wyckoff called a timeout after Syracuse opened up a seven-point lead midway through the first quarter of Thursday night’s game.
After that timeout, the Orange was outscored 30-9 the rest of the first half. That run proved to be the difference in SU’s 67-52 loss to the Seminoles.
Florida State responded right out of the early timeout. Sayawni Lassiter drained a 3-pointer coming out of the huddle. Then Bianca Jackson sank back-to-back triples to give the Seminoles a quick 9-0 run.
FSU led by as many as 18 points. SU closed the gap to eight midway through the fourth quarter, but those early Seminoles runs proved to be costly.
Florida State (7-5, 6-5 ACC) improved to 5-0 at home — one of three ACC teams unbeaten at home — and Syracuse (11-5, 8-5) dropped to 4-5 when playing on the road.
