Duke clinches ACC with win

(Continued)

COLLEGE PARK, Md. —

Freshman Jillian Alleyne had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Ducks.

No. 6 California 58, Oregon St. 56: Layshia Clarendon scored 26 points and California rallied from 17 points down in the first half to beat Oregon State and extend the longest winning streak in school history.

Clarendon did most of her work in the second half, including an off-balance 14-foot leaner that gave Cal a 57-51 lead with just under 4 minutes remaining. The Bears (25-2, 15-1 Pac-12) didn’t make another basket after that but held on for the win after being dominated for much of the game.

Jamie Weisner had 20 points and 10 rebounds, while Mollee Schwegler added 15 points for Oregon State (9-19, 3-13). The Beavers have lost seven conference games by five points or fewer.

Cal’s 13th straight win assured it of finishing no worse than second in the Pac-12.

No. 7 Penn St. 68, Michigan 57: Maggie Lucas scored 21 points and Penn State held off a late Michigan charge to clinch at least a share of its second straight Big Ten regular-season title.

Alex Bentley had 11 points and four steals, and set the emotional tone in the final appearance at the Jordan Center for the vocal guard and the other four seniors who helped bring the Lady Lions (23-3, 13-1) back to Big Ten prominence.

Kate Thompson scored 25 points for Michigan (19-8, 8-6), which trailed by 19 early but went on a 12-4 run to claw back to within four with 8 minutes left.

Penn State turned up the defense to hold on and finish unbeaten at home.

LSU 77, No. 8 Kentucky 72: BATON ROUGE, La. — Jeanne Kenney hit all five 3-pointers she attempted and finished with a career-high 22 points to lead LSU past Kentucky.

Kenney was unsure if she would play against the Wildcats because of a sore left foot.

She did not start, but saved the Lady Tigers (17-10, 8-6 Southeastern Conference) in a reserve role, finishing 7 of 8 from the field and 3 of 4 from the foul line.
