Glymph's First Start A Memorable One

Camille Glymph

The Auburn women's basketball team defeated South Florida with a big scoring night from sophomore guard Camille Glymph.

Auburn, Ala.--Despite not making a field goal in the final 14 minutes of the game, the Auburn women's basketball team ended a long layoff from action with a 62-45 victory over South Florida on Wednesday night.

Sophomore guard Camille Glymph led the Tigers with 23 points. She hit 4-9 threes and 7-8 free throws as Auburn improved its record to 6-2.

Glymph, who was injured most of last season, bad the big scoring night in her first college start.

"She loves the game," Auburn coach Nell Fortner said of Glymph. "She absolutely loves the game of basketball. It is such an incredibly important part of her life, and she just plays it as much as she possibly can. She wants to play 24/7. It's always nice to see a kid get paid off as far as knocking down shots in a game when they put in that much work."

Sophomore forward Tyrese Tanner added 12 points for the Tigers.

Jasmine Wynn led USF with 17 points and five rebounds as the Bulls fell to 6-5.

Commenting on the field goal drought, Fortner said, "I can't explain it. I felt it. Literally, it was like the clock was going backwards because it couldn't run fast enough for me because I knew we were struggling. I don't know if it's that we got the big lead and teams just tend to kind of let go a little; they kind of loosen up a little bit and South Florida didn't. They kept coming at us pretty hard, and it was just a tough night for us from that point on."

Auburn shot 39.1 percent from the field and held the visitors to 29.3 percent shooting, including just 1-10 treys. Auburn made 7-17 threes and 19-25 free trhows while USF was 10-19 at the foul line.

Both teams struggled with turnovers. Auburn committed 29, USF had 0. Auburn overcame that by dominating the boards with a 48-29 edge in rebounds.

The Tigers return to action on Sunday with a 2 p.m. home game vs. Purdue.
