January 9, 2018
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Tytionia Adderly's sixth career double-double and a stout team defensive effort led the FGCU women's basketball team past Stetson 80-40 in the conference opener at Alico Arena on Saturday.

With the win, FGCU (15-3, 1-0 ASUN) has now won five straight and nine of 10. The Eagles will host NJIT at 4 p.m. Saturday before closing out its seven-game home stand against USC Upstate on Jan. 15 at 7 p.m.

Stetson fell to 9-8 overall and 0-1 in ASUN play.

The 80-point outing represented the most points ever scored against Stetson in series history, and the 40 points allowed was the second fewest given up in series history.

Adderly finished with a game-high 21 points, a game-high 13 rebounds and one assist on 6-for-11 shooting. She also went 2-for-4 from the 3-point line and set new career-highs for free throws made and attempted in a game (7-for-10).

Rosemarie Julien added 12 points, four rebounds and a steal for the Eagles. She finished 4-for-8 from the field (2-for-4 from 3-point range) and made both of her free throw attempts. Chandler Ryan drained a trio of 3-pointers to finish with 11 points in five minutes off the bench late in the second half, while Lisa Zderadicka contributed 10 points, four rebounds, four assists and a steal.

Overall, FGCU shot 47.3 percent (26-for-55) from the field and 41.4 percent (12-for-29) from 3-point range. The Eagles, who never trailed, out-rebounded Stetson 41-22 in large part due to Adderly and also held advantages in points in the paint (28-22), points off turnovers (23-8), second chance points (13-0), fast break points (6-0) and bench points (33-15).

FGCU is now 9-0 at home this year. Stetson, who made the WNIT last year, represented the ninth opponent the Eagles have faced this year who made either the WNIT or NCAA Tournament last year.
