No. 6 Stanford women hold off No. 3 Tennessee

Posted:

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Amber Orrange scored on a left-handed layin and was fouled with 25.8 seconds left and converted the free throw, helping seal No. 6 Stanford's 76-70 victory against third-ranked Tennessee on Saturday that handed the Lady Vols their first loss.
    
Chiney Ogwumike had 32 points, a season-best 20 rebounds and three blocks as Stanford held off a late Tennessee rally.
    
Andraya Carter's baseline 3-pointer with 1:02 remaining cut the Cardinal's lead to 70-68 but Stanford kept possession with 36 seconds to go on a jump ball in a big break, and Orrange came through.
    
Stanford (10-1) has its first three-game winning streak in the rivalry between perennial national powers.
    
Ariel Massengale scored 17 points and Meighan Simmons 15 to lead the Lady Vols (10-1), who were hurt 35.8 percent shooting.
