Women's basketball: USF Bulls beat Stetson Hatters 80-42

TAMPA — Playing in her first game since the 2008-09 WNIT final, sixth-year senior Porche Grant had 10 points and 10 rebounds in 23 minutes and keyed a first-half run that lifted USF to an 80-42 victory over Stetson on Wednesday night at the Sun Dome.

Grant, who redshirted last season because of her pregnancy, had eight points and three rebounds during a 15-4 run that ended the first half and gave the Bulls (2-1) a 35-23 lead. The power forward led USF in rebounding in the two seasons before she took last year off.

USF continued to pile on, outscoring the Hatters (1-1) 44-19 in the second half.

Andrea Smith and Kaneisha Saunders had 13 points each, Leondra Doomes-Stephens 12 and Jasmine Wynne 10 for the Bulls. Smith added three steals and three assists.

Sasha Sims and Tierra Brown had 11 points each for Stetson.

NO. 7 OHIO ST. 59, LSU 55: Tayler Hill had 15 points, including a tiebreaking basket in the final minute, and the visiting Buckeyes (3-0) used a fake timeout to steal a three-point play.

With the score tied at 50, Ohio State coach Jim Foster faked calling a timeout. The LSU players began to go to their bench, but the ball was still live. Alison Jackson made an uncontested layup, and the Tigers were whistled for a technical foul for having six players on the floor. Hill hit one of two free throws.

NO. 10 W. VA. 69, DUQUESNE 58: Madina Ali scored a career-high 19, Liz Repella added 18 and the Mountaineers (2-0) beat the Dukes for the 11th straight time and won their school-record 21st consecutive home game.
