OSU tops San Diego St.

(Continued)

SAN DIEGO —

Tennessee’s Isabelle Harrison recorded a double-double with a game-high 18 points and 11 rebounds. Meighan Simmons scored 15 points and Bashaara Graves 11.

Kahleah Copper led the Scarlet Knights with 13 points.

No. 4 Duke 73, Monmouth 32

DURHAM, N.C. — Tricia Liston scored 15 points for No. 4 Duke, and Monmouth tied a Division I record with three points in the first half of a 73-32 rout Sunday.

The overmatched Hawks managed just one field goal in the opening 20 minutes against the Blue Devils (11-0).

Monmouth (3-8) matched the NCAA’s halftime scoring mark set in 2003 by Savannah State against Florida State and equaled by Tennessee State two years ago against Georgia Tech.

Chelsea Gray scored 13 points and Haley Peters added 11 points and 10 rebounds for the Blue Devils, who could afford an off day from star sophomore Elizabeth Williams.

She had 11 rebounds but matched a career low with seven points — nine below her average — on 1-of-7 shooting.

No. 7 Kentucky 78, Marist 56

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Jennifer O’Neill scored a career-high 21 points, and Kentucky pulled away to beat Marist for its 11th straight victory.

DeNesha Stallworth also had 21 points for the Wildcats (12-1), who came out sluggish after Friday’s 90-23 rout of Alcorn State in which they set a school record for fewest points allowed. Kentucky trailed just twice early on but didn’t gain its usual comfortable lead until late in the game.

O’Neill’s play on both ends helped wear down Marist. The sophomore guard shot 7 of 11, including 4 of 7 on 3-point attempts, to easily surpass her previous best of 13 points. O’Neill also set career highs with four steals and four 3-pointers.

Kentucky scored 35 points off 27 Marist turnovers.

Elizabeth Beynnon had 15 points for the Red Foxes (5-6), who fell to 1-17 against ranked opponents.
