No. 10 Stanford rallies past No. 6 Oregon St to win Pac-12
SEATTLE (AP) — Alanna Smith scored 18 points, Karlie Samuelson added 14 and No. 10 Stanford overcame an early 13-point deficit to beat No. 6 Oregon State 48-43 and win the Pac-12 Tournament championship Sunday night.
The Cardinal (28-5) won their 12th tournament title, the most in conference history, and took the Pac-12's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
While Smith was carrying Stanford at the offensive end, the Cardinal shut down Oregon State and star Sydney Wiese, getting a bit of payback for a pair of regular-season losses to the Beavers. Oregon State (29-4) shot just 32 percent, made one shot in the fourth quarter, was held to a season low in points and lost for the first time since Feb. 10.
Wiese led the Beavers with 13 points.
