Duke clinches ACC with win



Villanova led 42-40 when Slaughter hit a go-ahead 3 with 6:15 left to spark a 7-1 clinching run.

No. 19 Georgia 73, Mississippi 54: Jasmine Hassell had 23 points and 10 rebounds to help coach Andy Landers earn his 900th coaching victory with a win over Mississippi.

Landers has 818 wins with Georgia (23-4, 11-3) and had 82 at Roane State prior to taking over at Georgia. The NCAA does not recognize his 82 wins at Roane State, a junior college in Tennessee.

Hassell hit 10 of 15 from the field as the Lady Bulldogs shot 50 percent (31 of 62), outscoring Ole Miss 48-20 in the paint. Shacobla Barbee added 13 points on 6-of-7 shooting and Tiaria Griffin scored 12, hitting 2 of 3 from 3-point range.

Gracie Frizzell, Valencia McFarland and Diara Moore scored nine apiece for Ole Miss (9-18, 2-12).

No. 14 Dayton 67, Temple 47: Andrea Hoover led five players in double-figure scoring with 14 points and Dayton won its 12th straight game with a rout of Temple.

Ally Malott and Olivia Applewhite scored 12 apiece, Amber Dean added 11 and Samantha Mackay chipped in 10 points and seven assists for Dayton (24-1, 12-0 Atlantic 10).

In the first half, Dayton shot 38.7 percent (12 of 31), but held Temple to just 33.3 percent (8 of 24) to take a 34-22 lead at the break.

Dayton led by as many as 22 in the second half.

Tyonna Williams led Temple (12-15, 5-7) with 13 points — the only Owl in double figures.

No. 15 South Carolina 58, Mississippi St. 43: Aleighsa Welch had a career-high 20 points with 11 rebounds to power South Carolina past Mississippi State.

Khadijah Sessions and Elem Ibiam added 11 points apiece for South Carolina (22-5, 10-4 Southeastern Conference), which tied a program record with its 10th conference victory.

The Gamecocks, who scored the first 12 points of the game and led 36-20 at halftime, got 17 points off 24 turnovers.

Martha Alwal had 13 points for the Bulldogs (12-15, 4-10), who opened with second half with a 9-2 run before the Gamecocks regained control with an 18-10 burst that pushed the lead to 56-39.
