SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Taylor Ford made three of Syracuse's 14 3-pointers and finished with a career-high 21 points to help the No. 19 Orange beat Coppin State 88-56 on Wednesday night.
Ford, a senior, had the first 20-point game of her career — helped by making her first five shots from the field.
Syracuse closed the first quarter on a 9-2 run, with five points from Maggie Morrison, for a 20-12 lead and Coppin State didn't score its first point of the second quarter until the 6:55 mark. The Orange made seven 3-pointers in the first half to extend its lead to 37-23.
Julia Chandler, Alexis Peterson and Brianna Butler hit three 3-pointers apiece for Syracuse (6-2). Peterson finished with 15 points, and Butler and Chandler had 11 apiece.
It was a season-best total for the freshman Chandler and Peterson reached double figures for the seventh straight game.
Omaah Tayong led Coppin State (2-6) with 14 points and Janelle Lane added 13.
