Jasmine Young scored 23 points and helped bring East Carolina back from a 12-point deficit to defeat Rice 79-70 in the Conference USA women's basketball tournament final.

The game, played Sunday afternoon in Tulsa, OK, was nationally televised on ESPN2.

Sophomore guard Impris Manning added 14 points, tournament MVP LaCoya Terry, also a sophomore guard, had 12 and senior center Cherie Mills added 11 points for the third-seeded Lady Pirates (19-13), whose 10th straight win sends them to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1982.

Terry and Young were named to the All-Tournament Team. Young's conversion of 9 free throws against the Owls tied an all-time record for the championship game.

Krystal Frazier led fourth-seeded Rice (19-13) with 27 points, including a championship game record-tying six 3-pointers.

The Owls led at the half 36-34 and increased the margin to 53-41 with 12:18 remaining.

ECU moved into the semifinals with a 76-72 quarterfinal win over No. 6 seed Southern Methodist and an 85-81 upset victory over second-seeded UAB.

The NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championship bracket will be announced Monday, Mar. 12. While ECU gains C-USA's automatic entry into the field, Tulane (25-6), UAB (18-12) and Texas-El Paso (22-8) will have to wait for selection Monday to learn their postseason fates.

If it does not gain an NCAA bid, regular season champion Tulane is guaranteed a berth in the WNIT.

The 2007 C-USA All-Tournament Team:

Tye Jackson, Houston
Carmen Guzman, UAB
Jasmine Young, East Carolina
Valeriya Berezhynska, Rice
LaCoya Terry, East Carolina - MVP

George Mason maintained at least a double-digit lead for the entire second half and held off second-seeded Old Dominion in the CAA Tournament semifinals on Sunday. The sixth-seeded Patriots advance to Monday's title game by virtue of a 79-63 win over the Monarchs, who had a 12-game winning streak snapped.

Mason was able to build the lead to as many as 22 in the second half. The Patriots will now try to become the first team to win four straight games in the CAA Tournament as they take on Virginia Commonwealth in the championship game at 7 p.m. on Monday (ESPN).

GMU reached the Final Four last year.

Matt Peeler and Brian Walter's 9-8 victory in a No. 2 doubles match earned East Carolina's opening point and later proved to be the difference as the Pirates edged The Citadel 4-3 in non-conference men's tennis action on Saturday afternoon at the ECU Tennis Complex.

The Pirates, who snapped a three-match losing streak with the victory, improved to 5-8 on the season.
