Tar Heels complete trio of routs to win Hawaii tournament

Posted by on Mon, Nov 29, 2010 at 9:47 AM

UNC may have begun its women’s basketball season with a homestand against four pretty easy opponents, but if there were any questions about the No. 14 Tar Heels being “for real” they should be gone after their trip to Hawaii.

Jessica Breland led the way with 19 points, followed by Italee Lucas with 15 and Tierra Ruffin-Pratt 14 as the Tar Heels demolished Hawaii 91-57 for the championship of the Rainbow Wahine Showdown.

The 7-0 Tar Heels, who have won so far by an average of 44.6 points, also destroyed Washington State and Illinois in Honolulu.

Shawna-Lei Kuehu led the Rainbow Wahine (4-2) with 16 points.

Lucas was named the tournament’s MVP, while Breland was also on the all-tourney squad.
