Blue Devils top Red Storm

NEW YORK — It’s tough to tell that Duke star Elizabeth Williams hasn’t been practicing much this season.

Williams, who is still recovering from a stress fracture in her left leg that has bothered her for the last eight months, had 16 points, seven rebounds and five blocks to lead No. 4 Duke to a 60-42 victory over St. John’s on Sunday in the seventh annual Maggie Dixon Classic.

“She’s doing OK,” Duke coach Joanne P. McCallie said. “It’s hard for her and we’re not out of the woods yet. We take it day by day with her. She’s learning how to play with less practice time. She’s not practicing and doing half of what the other kids are. It’s going to take some time.”

The reigning ACC rookie and defensive player of the year is still trying to work her way back. She doesn’t practice every day and even then takes drills off.

“I’m feeling good, just trying to get into a rhythm, get a lot of rebounds early,” the 6-foot-3 post player said.

No. 17 Kansas 97, Newman 64.

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Carolyn Davis scored 24 points and No. 17 Kansas never trailed in a 97-64 victory over Newman on Sunday.

Ten Jayhawks scored in the contest as Kansas (8-1) built a 51-31 lead at halftime. Davis was 11 of 16 from the field — Kansas shot 55 percent — and matched the team high with nine rebounds.

Chelsea Gardner had 17 points and nine rebounds for the Jayhawks. Angel Goodrich added 11 points and Monica Engelman scored 10.

Alexandra Cibattoni led all scorers with 27 points for the Jets (4-7). She was 11 for 20 from the field for Newman, which plays in Division II.

No. 15 Purdue 68,Tenn.-Martin 60

MARTIN, Tenn. — Sam Ostarello scored 14 of her 16 points in the second half and Taylor Manuel also scored 16 as No. 15 Purdue overcame a challenge from Tennessee-Martin to win 68-60 Sunday after trailing at halftime.
