Tamoria Holmes (4) scored 13 of her 19 points after intermission to help lead Howard University to a 51-43 win over Florida A&M University in the semifinals of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference women's tournament at the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Winston-Salem, N.C. The game took place on Friday, March 9. The Lady Bison (24-7), the Number 2 seed, advanced to the tournament championship for the second straight year against Hampton, the 2011-12 regular season and 2011 defending tournament champion. That game was televised live on ESPNU at 4 p.m. on Saturday where Hampton nipped Howard 54-53. Holmes scored 20 points in the final, but missed giving Howard the win when she took an inbounds pass and her running jumper hit the rim and failed to drop in the basket. /Courtesy photo by Abdullah Yusuf
