Clayton helps FSU topple BC

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. — Chasity Clayton scored 14 to pace four Florida State players in double figures as the No. 22 Seminoles topped ACC rival Boston College 67-57 Thursday night to sweep the season series.

Leonor Rodriguez scored 13, Alexa Deluzio 12 and Natasha Howard 10 for FSU (14-3, 4-2).

Freshman Nicole Boudreau led Boston College (8-8, 2-3) with 18 points on 4-of-5 from 3-point range. Kristen Doherty added 12 points.

The Eagles went on a 12-2 run to get within 50-47 with 8:06 left. FSU rebounded with a 7-2 run, and with 39 seconds to play, Clayton grabbed an air ball and beat the shot clock with a layup that made it 63-55.

"We lost focus in the second half," FSU coach Sue Semrau said. "We are fortunate Chasity came up with the game she did. That was the difference."

No. 5 UK 100, Miss. State 47: DeNesha Stallworth scored 25 for the Wildcats (17-1, 5-0 SEC), who have the best start in school history. The 1982-83 team was 16-1. Kentucky extended its school-record win streak to 16 and its record home win streak to 32.

NO. 7 CAL 71, USC 63, OT: Gennifer Brandon had 23 points and a career-high 26 rebounds, and the host Golden Bears (14-2, 4-1 Pac-12) outscored the Trojans 9-1 in overtime. Cal trailed by six with 1:42 left in regulation.

No. 8 Penn St. 84, Wis. 40: Nikki Greene scored a season-high 23 and grabbed 14 rebounds for the Nittany Lions (14-2, 4-0 Big Ten), who won their eighth straight overall and third in a row by at least 20. It was Penn State's first conference victory of 40 or more points since the 2000-01 season.

No. 9 Tenn. 75, Auburn 66: Meighan Simmons scored 18 of her 29 after halftime for the visiting Vols (14-3, 5-0 SEC). Tennessee trailed throughout, then took control with a 40-15 run.

No. 10 Maryland 82, N.C. St. 62: Tianna Hawkins had 26 points and a season-high 17 rebounds, her ninth double double, and the host Terps (14-3, 5-1 ACC) never trailed. Maryland has won eight of its past nine vs. the Wolfpack.

No. 11 UNC 71, Virginia 60: Xylina McDaniel had 15 points and nine rebounds as the host Tar Heels (18-1, 6-0 ACC) won their 11th straight. North Carolina, which came in leading the nation in steals (14.9), had 14 and scored 32 points off 24 turnovers.

No. 12 Purdue 75, Minn. 67: Sam Ostarello had 19 points and 14 rebounds for the host Boilermakers (15-2, 4-0 Big Ten), who had gone to overtime to win their previous three games.

No. 13 UGA 57, Arkansas 53: Shacobia Barbee had 15 points and 11 rebounds and visiting Georgia (16-2, 4-1 SEC) overcame an 11-point halftime deficit.

No. 19 S. Carolina 66, LSU 59: Ieasia Walker scored 24, surpassing 1,000 in her career, for the host Gamecocks (15-3, 3-2 SEC).

No. 25 Mich. 67, N'western 53: Kate Thompson scored 23 and the host Wolverines (15-2, 4-0 Big Ten) won their 10th straight, matching the program's longest streak. Michigan never trailed.
