WOMEN'S COLLEGE HOOPS: Wins for OSU, UO; Schimmel makes 9 from 3-point range

SUNDAY SUMMARY

• The Beavers and Ducks posted Pac-12 victories.

Oregon State beat Washington State 72-57 in Corvallis.

In Eugene, Jillian Alleyne's huge double-double enabled Oregon to pull away from Washington in the late going and win its second in a row, 101-85.

• Shoni Schimmel's 29 points — with a school-record nine 3-pointers — led No. 5 Louisville to a 88-61 home victory over Memphis.

  • BEAVERS

    OSU is 8-1 at home, its best start at Gill Coliseum since 1995-96, after the 72-57 win over WSU.

    Ruth Hamblin (13 points, 12 rebounds) and Deven Hunter (16 points, 10 rebounds) paced Oregon State (12-8 overall, 4-4 Pac-12).

    The Cougars fell to 11-9, 5-3.

  • DUCKS

    Jillian Alleyne led Oregon with season highs of 35 points and 25, plus five assists, at Matthew Knight Arena, as UO topped UW 101-85.

    She was 11 of 17 from the field and 12 of 14 at the free-throw line. It was her 15th consecutive double-double.

    Oregon improved to 2-6 in the Pac-12 and 11-8 for the season. Washington fell to 3-5, 10-9.

    Lexi Petersen scored 23 for the Ducks, while Chrishae Rowe had 16 and Katelyn Loper 16.

  • LOUISVILLE CARDINALS

    • Guard Shoni Schimmel and fifth-ranked Louisville are 20-1 after beating Memphis at home on Sunday afternoon.

    Schimmel tossed in 29 points, going 10 of 16 from the field and 9 of 12 on 3-pointers. She topped her previous school record of eight 3s set Jan. 30, 2013 against South Florida.

    The former Franklin High star also had three rebounds, one steal and one assist, with two turnovers versus Memphis.

    Schimmel went to the bench with 11:41 left in the first half, after missing her first four shots.

    "When I sat down on the bench, I kind of evaluated the whole situation and I thought, 'I'm better than that', so I just went back out there," Schimmel said.

    She returned after about three minutes — and wound up outscoring Memphis by herself in the first half, 26-24.

    She made eight 3-pointers in the first half and left the game with 8:55 remaining to an ovation from the crowd of 10,345.

    Jude Schimmel, a junior guard who is Shoni's sister, returned to action for the Cardinals and contributed five points, four assists and two steals off the bench.

    Louisville is 8-0 in the American Athletic Conference. Memphis fell to 3-5 in the AAC and 10-10 overall.
