Duke clinches ACC with win

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Elizabeth Williams scored 16 points and No. 5 Duke beat No. 8 Maryland 75-59 on Sunday to clinch the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title.

Alexis Jones, Haley Peters and Tricia Liston each added 15 points for the Blue Devils (26-1, 16-0), who won their 10th straight game, improved to 6-1 this season against ranked opponents and completed a season sweep of the Terrapins (22-5, 13-3).

Tianna Hawkins had 16 points and nine rebounds for Maryland, which had won three consecutive games since a 71-56 loss at Duke on Feb. 11. Alyssa Thomas added 14 points.

The Terrapins, who shot 34.8 percent from 3-point range coming in, were just 3 for 18.

Duke won its second straight game without point guard Chelsea Gray, who sustained a season-ending dislocated right kneecap Feb. 17 against Wake Forest. The win gave the Blue devils a 40-39 advantage in the all-time series.

No. 2 Notre Dame 84, DePaul 56: Skylar Diggins finished with 17 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, and Notre Dame won its 20th straight with a victory over DePaul.

Jewell Loyd added 19 points and Kayla McBride scored 16 for the Fighting Irish (25-1, 13-0 Big East), whose only loss came against Baylor in early December.

The Irish forced 21 turnovers and held DePaul (18-9, 7-6) to 33.3-percent shooting.

Notre Dame took control right from the start and never looked back, winning by 20 or more for the fourth straight game while sending the Blue Demons to their second straight blowout loss.

Brittany Hrynko scored 15 points on 4-of-19 shooting for DePaul.

No. 4 Stanford 74, Oregon 50: Chiney Ogwumike scored 27 points, grabbed a school-record 24 rebounds and set a Stanford career mark with her 52nd double-double in a win over Oregon.

Ogwumike, a junior, broke the career double-double record she had briefly shared with her older sister, Nnemkadi Ogwumike.

The Cardinal (26-2, 15-1 Pac-12) won their 12th straight game since suffering a 67-55 loss to Cal on Jan. 13 and remained tied atop the conference standings with the Bears. Stanford beat Oregon (4-24, 2-14) for the 17th consecutive time, improving to 47-8 in the series and 26-1 at home.
