OPA LOCKA, Fla.—The Barry Buccaneers ran their women’s basketball win streak to four games with a 78-48 demolition of Florida Memorial at the Robinson Athletic Center on Saturday.
Danielle DeBerry led a balanced Buccaneer attack with 12 points and 12 rebounds, while Yvonne Houston added 11 points, five boards, six assists, three blocks and three steals. Four other Bucs scored at least eight points.
The Bucs (5-3) slowly pulled away from the Lions (4-7) in the first half, building a 20-point lead on a Jen Mitchell fast break layup with 1:38 left. The Bucs carried a 21-point margin into the break after Shanna Suttington’s layup in transition at the buzzer and led by at least 20 the rest of the way.
Barry pushed the lead to 30 points on a layup by Glaucia Lehn with 3:33 left in the game and took its biggest lead at 76-45 a minute later on a jumper by Kaley Howard.
Barry held a 50-36 edge on the board and out-shot the Lions from the floor, making 35 field goals to 17.
The Bucs are off for the NCAA Division II dead period until Dec. 28 when they host the Palm Beach Atlantic Sailfish at 5:30 pm.
