William and Mary rallies past Seton Hall, VCU rolls over NSU

Wednesday's results:

William and Mary 61, Seton Hall 54: The Pirates have already taken down Florida Gulf Coast and Drexel this season, so the Tribe wouldn't have had much explaining to do had they failed to overcome a 9-point second-half deficit. Instead, the Tribe ripped off 17 straight points and carried through for arguably their most impressive victory of the season. Janine Aldridge, who took just 3 shots and was held scoreless in a 19-minute stint Monday against Long Island, went off on Seton Hall with 6 3-pointers and a game-high 24 points. Emily Correal and Jaclyn McKenna each added 14 points for the Tribe (6-4), which won on the road for the third time this season.

VCU 79, Norfolk State 59: We figured the Spartans would have problems with Courtney Hurt (22 points) and Andrea Barbour (22 points), because most teams do. But the Spartans also struggled mightily with VCU's defensive pressure, particularly in a first half that ended with the Rams ahead 46-19. The victory was the fourth straight for the Rams (7-3) and seventh in their last eight games. Whitney Long got loose for19 points for NSU (5-5).

Florida Gulf Coast 69, Virginia Tech 41: The Eagles attempted 61 field goals, 47 of which were 3-pointers. Seventeen of those threes fell. But that's pretty much business as usual for the nation's top 3-point-shooting team. Aerial Wilson scored 15 points to lead the Hokies (3-8).
