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.

NO. 17 Wis.-GREEN BAY 88, Wis.-MILWAUKEE 53: Julie Wojta had 27 points and a school- and Horizon League-record 12 steals for the visiting Phoenix (13-0, 3-0).

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).

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.
