Vandy forward has career game vs. UF

NASHVILLE — Forward Hannah Tuomi had 16 of her career-high 26 points in the second half, leading Vanderbilt to a 71-60 victory over Florida on Wednesday night.

Tuomi made all 10 shots and had nine rebounds as the Commodores (20-8, 9-6 SEC) took sole possession of third place with one game left. Last season the forward suffered a season-ending injury before the regular-season finale.

"We were dominated by Hannah Tuomi in the paint," UF coach Amanda Butler said. "I'm really disappointed with our post defense and that we couldn't do a better job on an individual who generally doesn't have a scoring role for their team."

Jennifer George had 13 points for the Gators (14-14, 7-8).

TAMPA 82, FLA. SOUTHERN 65: Taja Green and Gianna Messina had 25 points each for the host Spartans (24-3, 14-2 Sunshine State Conference) in their regular-season finale.

ECKERD 69, SAINT LEO 56: Kati Rausberg had 20 points and tied a school record with her 63rd 3-pointer of the season to lead the host Tritons (10-14, 4-11 SSC) past the Lions (13-13, 6-9).

Top 25

NO. 1 UCONN 87, SYRACUSE 66: Maya Moore had a season-high 38 points and a career-high 20 rebounds as the visiting Huskies (28-0, 14-0 Big East) won their 67th straight game, three shy of tying their NCAA record.

NO. 3 NEBRASKA 80, NO. 11 OKLAHOMA 64: Kelsey Griffin had 30 points and 13 rebounds, Cory Montgomery added a season-high 24 points and the visiting Cornhuskers (26-0, 13-0) clinched their first Big 12 title by pulling away from the Sooners (19-8, 9-4).

NO. 5 XAVIER 81, CHARLOTTE 61: Amber Harris had 14 of her 18 points in the second half to help the host Musketeers (23-3, 13-0 Atlantic 10) rally for their 14th straight win.

NO. 23 OKLA. ST. 73, NO. 14 TEXAS 72, OT: Andrea Riley had the Cowgirls' final 17 points in regulation, and Megan Byford's free throw in overtime helped host Oklahoma State (19-8, 7-6 Big 12) beat the Longhorns (19-8, 8-5).

NO. 18 ST. JOHN'S 60, RUTGERS 52: Kelly McManmon hit consecutive 3-pointers to ignite a late 12-4 spurt, and the host Red Storm (22-5, 10-4 Big East) snapped a 17-game losing streak against the Scarlet Knights.

NO. 24 HARTFORD 63, ALBANY, N.Y. 57: Diana Delva had a season-best 22 points, including a go-ahead three-point play, to help the visiting Hawks (24-3, 15-0) clinch the America East regular-season title.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Saturday's game got away starting with a leadoff walk in the seventh inning by Rays LHP Jose Alvarado, who was brought in exclusively to face Baltimore's lefty-swinging Seth Smith.

    Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz wipes his face as he walks off the mound after the Orioles score four during the seventh inning to give them a 7-3 lead. Diaz was one strike away from working out of the jam before he allowed a two-run double and a two-run homer on back-to-back pitches.
  4. Rookie Jake Faria dissatisfied with performance in Rays' loss to Orioles

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The rookie pitcher walked to his locker Saturday after tossing the fourth quality start in as many tries to begin his career. He held the potent Orioles bats to three runs and for six innings gave his team a chance to win.
