CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Senior Morgan Stroman was dominant with a double-double as Miami cruised to a 67-35 win over the visiting Davidson Wildcats, Saturday afternoon at the BankUnited Center.

No. 23 Miami (7-1) used a 10-0 run to open each half, 42 points in the paint and scored 21 points on second chance opportunities to put away the Wildcats.

"This team is one of the better half-court teams that I have coached," head coach Katie Meier said. However, "... transition points are usually what breaks someone's spirit."

The Hurricanes didn't allow Davidson (3-5) to score until the 14:35 mark of the first half, and only allowed the Wildcats to 18 total first half points. Davidson's 35 point total was their lowest scoring output through eight games this season.

Stroman, who finished with 17 points and 13 rebounds, achieved her double-double just a little over three minutes into the second half.

"It's all her energy and all her will," Meier said. "She is just one of the most fun players I have ever coached."

Stroman is now tied for second in the ACC amongst active players for career double-doubles (19). It was also her second of the year.

"As we evolve as a team, there are certain things on a coaches checklist to make sure that you know about your team and one of them is can they take care of business," added Meier.

Junior Krystal Saunders played a pivotal role in the win as she matched a season-high 13 points to go along with a season-best six rebounds.

"I'm very confident, I'm always in the gym, my teammates are always pushing me to shoot and whatever it takes to make Miami better is what I am going to do," Saunders said.

"Krys getting hot was fun, it was really fun," said Meier.

The Hurricanes will hit the court next on Dec. 16 when they travel to New Jersey to face Rutgers.
