Florida State women down Georgia Tech

TALLAHASSEE — Chelsea Davis made 10 of 13 shots and had 23 points Friday to lead No. 22 Florida State to a 76-71 victory over Georgia Tech.

The Seminoles (16-3, 6-2 ACC) secured their fourth straight win with a 15-3 run after trailing 65-60 with 7:35 left. Alexa Deluzio's three-point play gave them a 69-68 lead at the 4:12 mark before two baskets by Davis and one by Deluzio put FSU ahead 75-68. "In the last five minutes, they didn't score," FSU coach Sue Semrau said. "Part of that was our rebounding and our focus."

The Seminoles, who were averaging 48.3 percent from the field, third nationally, shot 52.7 percent (29-of-55) against the Yellow Jackets.

NO. 19 UCLA 73, ARIZONA 57: Atonye Nyingifa had a season-high 20 points and Kari Korver scored a career-high 14 for the host Bruins (14-4, 5-2 Pac-12), who snapped a two-game skid.

NO. 6 STANFORD 65, UTAH 44: Chiney Ogwumike scored 23 to lead the host Cardinal (18-2, 7-1 Pac-12).

MEN: UCLA is looking into a Gucci backpack that freshman Shabazz Muhammad was seen carrying Thursday, USA Today and Yahoo Sports reported. The backpack is worth at least $900. The swingman and Bruins' top scorer missed three games this season because of an NCAA investigation into illegal benefits.

FOOTBALL: New data on academic fraud at North Carolina showed athletes made up nearly half of the enrollments in 172 bogus classes in the African studies department and accounted for nearly half of 512 suspect grade changes in that period, the News & Observer in Raleigh, N.C., reported.

WOMEN'S HOCKEY: Host Minnesota beat Wisconsin 2-0 for its NCAA-record 33rd consecutive game unbeaten, all victories. The Golden Gophers are 25-0 this season. Wisconsin had two 32-game unbeaten streaks.
