Feb. 13, 2015
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Lili Thompson and Briana Roberson, removed from starting lineup in a shakeup after two losses last weekend, combined for 27 points to lead No. 19 Stanford to a 79-60 win over Southern California on Friday night.
The lineup change paid off as the Cardinal (18-7, 10-3) shot 55.2 percent with Thompson scoring 14 points and Roberson 13. Amber Orrange also had 13 and Bonnie Samuelson hit four 3-pointers for 12.
After losing two games in Arizona, Stanford dropped to its lowest ranking since Jan. 9, 2001, when the Cardinal were No. 24. To avoid the first three-game losing streak since they were ranked 24th, Erica Payne and Jasmine Camp made their first career starts, both hitting they only shot they took for two points each.
