No. 11 Stanford rallies to edge Oregon 64-62
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) Karlie Samuelson scored 18 points and Lili Thompson had 16, including two baskets in the last 35 seconds, to rally No. 11 Stanford to a 64-62 win over Oregon on Friday night.
Thompson scored on a drive to tie the game at 62 with 34.3 seconds left, but failed to convert the 3-point play. Then Stanford's Kailee Johnson blocked Lexi Petersen's shot on the other end with 11 seconds remaining.
Thompson scored on another drive with 2.4 seconds left and again missed the ensuing free throw but after a timeout that allowed Oregon to move the ball to the frontcourt, the Ducks didn't get off a final shot in time.
Kaylee Johnson scored 16 points and had five of 11 blocks for the Cardinals (14-3, 4-1 Pac 12).
Petersen had 17 points and Lexi Bando 15 for the Ducks (11-5, 0-5), who led at the half - 36-32 - for the fourth time in conference play.
Bando had a 3-pointer - Oregon was 12 of 21 behind the arc - for a 61-56 lead with five minutes left. Kailee Johnson and Briana Robertson made baskets in the next minute for Stanford but both teams went cold until a free throw by Jillian Alleyne put the Ducks up 62-60 with free throw at 52.5 seconds.
Oregon shot 27 percent, 1 of 16 inside the arc, in the second half.
