Women's BBall Gets First Conference Win In a Long Time

On Feb. 22, 2014, senior guard Jerica Coley scored 35 points on 12 of 26 shooting from the field and eight of 11 from the free throw line to lead FIU to a 77-66 win against Marshall.

FIU's women's basketball team lost its next 30 regular season Conference USA games. Until Thursday.

Senior guard Taylor Shade went off for an efficient 26 points -- nine of 13 from the field, three of four from three-point range, five of five from the line -- and Destini Feagin dropped in 19 points with seven rebounds and two steals as the Panthers beat UAB 72-61 at FIU Arena. First-year coach Marlin Chinn gets a conference result to go with his upbeat, energetic attitude.

FIU hosts Middle Tennessee State Saturday at 2 p.m.
