USF women fall to No. 14 Oklahoma State

OKLAHOMA CITY — Liz Donohoe had 18 points and eight rebounds as No. 14 Oklahoma State topped USF 75-56 in the All-College Classic at Chesapeake Energy Arena on Saturday.

Courtney Williams led the Bulls (5-4) with 18 points and Inga Orekhova returned 12 days after knee surgery to score 13.

Oklahoma State, 8-0 for the fourth straight season, shot 46 percent (30-for-64) and forced 21 turnovers, a season high for the Bulls, at Chesapeake Energy Arena, home of the NBA's Thunder.

"We turned it over too many times, and we never gave ourselves a chance," USF coach Jose Fernandez.

Donohoe scored five in an early 9-0 run that gave OSU a 16-7 lead with 13:55 left in the first half. The Bulls never got closer than six again.

Forward Alisa Jenkins had seven rebounds for the Bulls, who outrebounded Oklahoma State 40-39.

No. 3 Tennessee 103, Troy 64: The host Vols (8-0) outrebounded Troy 74-29 for the second-highest rebounding total in school history. Tennessee pulled down 76 rebounds in a 104-51 rout of Tennessee State on Feb. 27, 1988.

No. 4 Notre Dame 86, Mich. 64: Loyd Jewell scored 20 and Natalie Achonwa had 18 points and nine rebounds for the visiting Fighting Irish (9-0), who shot 59 percent.

No. 6 Stanford 73, No. 23 Gonzaga 45: Chiney Ogwumike had 19 points and seven rebounds as the Cardinal (8-1) rolled in its first game at home in Maples Pavilion since coach Tara VanDerveer won her 900th game on Nov. 27 in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, against Florida Gulf Coast. Stanford honored VanDerveer after the Gonzaga game as even the players from the Bulldogs (8-2) applauded.

No. 7 Louisville 108, Austin Peay 53: Shoni Schimmel scored 24 and Cortnee Walton added 13 for the host Cardinals (10-1), who shot 52 percent.

No. 8 Maryland 93, Del. St. 44: Alyssa Thomas shook off early foul trouble to finish with 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Terrapins (10-1) in Towson, Md.

No. 15 UNC 100, Charleston So. 49: Xylina McDaniel scored 15 to lead a balanced attack for the host Tar Heels (8-2), who shot 58 percent.

No. 19 Neb. 63, Creighton 38: Emily Cady scored 14 points and Jordan Hooper added 15 rebounds for the host Cornhuskers (8-2).

Vanderbilt: Freshman guard Rebekah Dahlman is out indefinitely after surgery and a follow­up procedure to remove a blood clot.
