Women's basketball: USF Bulls fall to No. 15 Georgetown Hoyas 66-56

TAMPA — USF gave No. 15 Georgetown a scare, trailing by one with 3:30 to play, but the Hoyas scored the next nine points and pulled out a 66-56 win before 743 at the USF Rec Center.

Junior guard Inga Orekhova, making her Bulls debut, scored a game-high 18 on six 3-pointers. Guard Jasmine Wynne had 17 points. Georgetown star Sugar Rodgers hit one of her first 14 shots and finished with 12 points on 4 of 19 shooting.

The Bulls (9-7, 1-1 Big East) led much of the second half but didn't have any outside shooting besides Orekhova; the rest of the team went 1-for-13 beyond the arc. Georgetown (13-3, 1-1) outrebounded the Bulls 50-37, including 15 offensive rebounds.

BARRY 63, TAMPA 40: The host Buccaneers held the Spartans (7-6, 1-3 Sunshine State) to 27.3 percent shooting.

ROLLINS 72, ECKERD 31: Tera McDaniel had 15 points on 6 of 8 shooting as the host Tars rolled over the Tritons (7-4, 2-2 SSC).

FLA. TECH 97, SAINT LEO 62: The host Panthers shot 53.3 percent (32-of-60) and scored 32 off 22 turnovers by the Lions (6-7, 0-3 SSC).

Top 25

NO. 1 BAYLOR 57, IOWA ST. 45: Brittney Griner had 26 points and her teammates contributed just enough for the visiting Bears (15-0, 2-0 Big 12), who continued the best start in school history but had to work to do it against a feisty Cyclones team that milked the shot clock.

NO. 3 NOTRE DAME 74, NO. 2 UCONN 67, OT: Natalie Novosel sank six free throws in overtime and Skylar Diggins scored 22 for the host Irish (15-1, 3-0), who rallied to snap the Huskies' 57-game Big East winning streak. Connecticut (12-2, 2-1) had beaten Notre Dame 12 straight times before losing in the national semifinals in April.

NO. 4 STANFORD 67, OREGON ST. 60: Nnemkadi Ogwumike had 33 points and 16 rebounds to top 2,000 points and 1,000 boards for her career, and the Cardinal (13-1, 4-0 Pac-12) rallied from a rare halftime deficit to preserve a 71-game home winning streak.

MICHIGAN 73, NO. 8 OHIO ST. 62: Courtney Boylan scored 19 for the host Wolverines, who gave the Buckeyes (15-1, 2-1 Big Ten) their first loss.

NO. 10 RUTGERS 58, CINCINNATI 47: April Sykes had 11 points and 11 rebounds for the host Scarlet Knights (13-2, 2-0 Big East), off to their best start since going 17-2 in 2007-08.

NO. 13 TEXAS TECH 69, MISSOURI 63: Chynna Brown scored 17 for the visiting Raiders (14-0, 2-0 Big 12), off to their best start since 2003-04.

PROVIDENCE 60, NO. 20 DEPAUL 52: Teya Wright had 19 points and 12 rebounds as the host Friars upset the Blue Demons (14-3, 2-1 Big East), down to eight players because of injuries.

MICHIGAN ST. 75, NO. 22 PENN ST. 65: Taylor Alton scored a career-high 20, and the visiting Spartans held off a late rally by the Nittany Lions (11-3, 1-1 Big Ten).

OKLA. ST. 70, NO. 23 TEXAS 51: Liz Donohoe had 13 points and 13 rebounds to help the host Cowgirls upset the Longhorns (10-4, 0-2 Big 12).
