FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Laia Flores scored a career-high 19 points on 7-of-9 shooting, Maria Jespersen had a double-double and No. 22 South Florida rolled to an 82-52 win over Florida International on Sunday.
Jespersen had 16 points and 10 rebounds and Laura Ferreira scored 16 for the Bulls (9-2), who went 15 of 15 from the foul line.
South Florida had no problem despite a subpar performance from Kitija Laska, who missed all seven of her 3-pointers and was 2 of 11 overall for four points. Laksa had made at least a trey in 25 straight games and at least two in her last 18 and was coming off a 40-point performance where she set an NCAA record by making 11-straight 3s. She leads the country with 4.90 treys a game.
Kiandre'a Pound scored 17 points with nine rebounds for the Panthers (2-8).
Due to FIU's on-campus graduation, the game was played at Rick Case Arena on the campus of Nova Southeastern in Fort Lauderdale.
