OSU tops Iowa State

(Continued)

STILLWATER, Okla. —

Stanford opened a 19-point edge in the first four minutes of the second half and had to stave off a fierce Trojans rally.

Southern California’s only senior and second leading rebounder, Christina Marinacci, missed her fourth straight game because of an injury sustained in the Trojans’ victory over Oregon two weeks ago.

No. 7 Cal 70, No. 14 UCLA 65: BERKELEY, Calif. — Layshia Clarendon scored 22 points to help California beat UCLA.

Talia Caldwell added 14 points and 11 rebounds while Gennifer Brandon also had a double-double with 12 points and 14 rebounds for the Golden Bears (15-2, 5-1). It’s Cal’s third win over a Top 25 team in its last five games.

UCLA was within 54-50 late in the second half when Clarendon made a 3-pointer. She later stole an inbounds pass as part of a 10-2 run then made four free throws in the final 54 seconds left to seal the win.

Thea Lemberger scored 15 points for the Bruins (13-4, 4-2). UCLA has lost two straight after winning its previous six.

No. 9 Tennessee 94, Alabama 62: KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Bashaara Graves had 19 points and eight rebounds to help Tennessee rout Alabama for its 39th consecutive victory over the Crimson Tide.

Alabama hasn’t beaten the Lady Vols since an 85-66 victory in the 1984 Southeastern Conference tournament.

Meighan Simmons had 16 points as the Lady Vols (15-3, 6-0 SEC) earned their eighth straight win. Isabelle Harrison, Jasmine Jones and Taber Spani each added 14 points.

Daisha Simmons scored 19 points, Kaneisha Horn added 14 points and Shafontaye Myers had 12 points for Alabama (11-7, 1-4).

This was the last day of the SEC’s “We Back Pat” week to support former Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt’s foundation and its fight against Alzheimer’s disease.

Tennessee coach Holly Warlick and her assistants wore “We Back Pat” T-shirts under their blazers.

Before the game, Tennessee’s coaches and players hugged Summitt, who sat in the front row at midcourt.
