OSU tops Iowa State

STILLWATER, Okla. — Liz Donohoe had 18 points and eight rebounds and Oklahoma State rolled past Iowa State.

Iowa State scored the first five points and led for much of the early going, but the Cowgirls (14-2, 3-2 Big 12) went on a 10-0 run sparked by Morgan Toben’s 3-pointer to take a 25-15 lead.

It was 31-21 at halftime and Oklahoma State scored the first 20 points of the second half, holding the Cyclones without a field goal for the first 8 minutes of the half.

Tiffany Bias had 12 points and 11 assists for the Cowgirls, who have won three straight. Kendra Suttles also scored 12 points, and Toni Young and Brittney Martin scored 10 apiece.

Hallie Christofferson led Iowa State (13-3, 4-2) with 14 points and 10 rebounds. The Cyclones’ only other losses were to Iowa and No. 1 Baylor.

No. 2 Notre Dame 74, St. Jon’s 50: SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Skylar Diggins scored 18 points, Natalie Achonwa had 16 points and 12 rebounds for her 10th double-double of the season and No. 2 Notre Dame beat 74-50 St. John’s on Sunday.

The All-American penetrated at will. When she wasn’t scoring on fast breaks, she was hitting pull-up jumpers or feeding forward Achonwa for easy layups.

St. John’s (9-7, 3-1 Big East) was led by Nadirah McKenith with 15 points. The Fighting Irish took a 39-25 halftime lead on a drive through traffic by Diggins as the clock expired.

Notre Dame (16-1, 5-0) outrebounded St. John’s 48-22 and outscored the Red Storm 38-24 in the paint.

No. 6 Stanford 75, USC 66:

STANFORD, Calif. — Chiney Ogwumike scored 23 of her 29 points in the second half and added 16 rebounds to help Stanford beat Southern California.

Joslyn Tinkle had 15 points while Sara James added 13 for the Cardinal (16-2, 5-1 in the Pac-12), who won their second straight since having a long conference streak end against California last Sunday. Amber Orrange added 11 points.

Cassie Harberts scored 21 points to lead the Trojans (7-10, 4-2 Pac-12), who lost their 11th straight to Stanford. Ariya Crook added 18 points.
