ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Blair Watson hit six 3-pointers and scored 20 points and No. 17 Maryland used a strong start to defeat No. 24 Michigan for the second time in 15 days, rolling to a 77-49 win on Sunday.

Ashley Owusu added 18 points and Diamond Miller scored 15 for the Terrapins (12-4, 3-2 Big Ten Conference), who beat the visiting Wolverines (11-5, 2-3) 70-55 on Dec. 28. The freshmen reserves helped the Maryland bench outscore Michigan’s bench 35-11.

Miller had two fastbreak layups to cap an 8-0 run and Maryland was up for good at 12-4. It was 21-12 after one quarter, and with the Terrapins scoring the first nine points of the second quarter, starting and ending with a Watson 3-pointer, it was 30-14.

Maryland turned 14 first-half Michigan turnovers into 10 points and led 37-21.

Naz Hillmon paced Michigan with 15 points and Kayla Robbins scored 11. The Wolverines ended up 2 of 10 from 3-point ranges, shot 34% overall and had 22 turnovers.

Maryland shot better from behind the arc, 10 of 21 (48%), than inside, 19 of 43 (44%).

No. 2 Oregon 71, No. 18 Arizona 64

TUCSON, Ariz. — Sabrina Ionescu had 17 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for her 22nd triple-double, extending her NCAA record and leading No. 2 Oregon to a win over No. 18 Arizona on Sunday.

The Ducks (14-2, 3-1 Pac-12) had a rare lapse in poise during a loss to Arizona State on Friday night, allowing the Sun Devils to charge back from a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter.

Oregon found itself in a similar position at McKale Center, building a 13-point lead midway through the third quarter.

The Ducks kept their composure when Arizona made a run by getting the ball inside or into the hands of Ionescu.

Aari McDonald scored 25 points for Arizona (12-3, 2-3), and Cate Reese had 13.


TEMPE, Ariz. — Ja’Tavia Tapley scored 14 points, Robbi Ryan and Reili Richardson added 10 each, and Arizona State got its second straight upset.

The victory finished a memorable weekend for the Sun Devils (13-4, 3-2 Pac-12), who also beat No. 2 Oregon 72-66 on Friday night. It also capped a tough week for the sport’s elite teams: No. 1 UConn, Oregon and Oregon State all lost and there will almost certainly be a shakeup in the national rankings on Monday.


NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Zia Cooke scored 17 points, and South Carolina got into position for a possible move up to No. 1 for the first time this season.

Top-ranked UConn lost to Baylor on Thursday night. No. 2 Oregon lost to Arizona State on Friday night, and Arizona State upset No. 3 Oregon State 55-47 earlier Sunday.

The Gamecocks (16-1, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) came in and simply dominated from the start on their way to a 10th straight win.

Mikiah Herbert Harrigan added 15 points for South Carolina.

Chelsie Hall scored 15 points for Vanderbilt (12-5, 2-2). Mariella Fasoula added 12.
