McPhee's career night leads No. 11 Stanford past No. 8 Texas
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Brittany McPhee scored a career-high 28 points, Erica McCall added 17 points and six blocked shots, and No. 11 Stanford avenged a home loss against Texas from two years ago by beating the eighth-ranked Longhorns 71-59 on Monday night.
McPhee shot 11 for 15 and had seven rebounds, while McCall had five boards and blocked five of her shots in the first half as Stanford (2-0) shot 54.9 percent and spoiled Texas' season opener.
Hall of Fame Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer, beginning her 31st season at the school and 38th as a college coach, moved 18 victories away from joining the late Pat Summitt as the only women's coaches to reach 1,000 career wins.
Brooke McCarty, the leading returning scorer for Texas after she averaged 11.8 points last season, had 20 points and Ariel Atkins 14 after she scored 11.2 points per game last season.
Texas is coming off 31 wins for the program's highest win total since 1987-88 and reached its first NCAA Elite Eight since 2002-03.
