MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Georgia Tech held Laurie Koehn, last season's best 3-point shooter in the nation, to two 3-pointers, but it forgot about Kansas State's other guard.

Megan Mahoney hit 4-of-5 3-pointers for 16 points and had 13 assists to lead No. 5 Kansas State 83-59 Sunday in the second round of the preseason WNIT.

With Mahoney's help, Kansas State made 8-of-12 3-pointers and held the Yellow Jackets to four field goals in the second half. The win sets up a semifinal Wednesday in Manhattan with Southern California.

Nicole Ohlde scored 20, Kendra Wecker added 19 and Koehn 13 for Kansas State. Mahoney shot 6-of-10 from the floor.

"I'm just playing," Mahoney said. "I'm not doing anything spectacular. My teammates are the ones making buckets."

A 7-1 run to start the second half gave Kansas State a 54-44 lead with 16:34 left. Georgia Tech cut the lead to eight, but never got closer. Wecker and Mahoney made back-to-back 3s and ignited a 13-0 run for a 69-48 lead with 10 minutes left. Sonja Mallory led Georgia Tech with 21 points and Fallon Stokes had 15.

Mazzante had three baskets in an 11-0 run at the start of the second half. Siena went 8:59 without a field goal in the second half before Trish Lyons hit 3-pointer with 1:18 left.

SOUTHERN CAL 59, NO. 19 COLO. STATE 58: Rachel Woodward hit a 3-pointer with eight seconds left and had 20 points and eight rebounds to lead the visiting Trojans. USC trailed by as many as 15 in the first half, but Woodward rallied the team by scoring 14 after halftime.

Colorado went ahead 58-56 when Ashley Augspurger, who scored 15, set up Shannon Strecker's layup with 25 seconds left. After a timeout, Cheeks found Woodward unguarded in the right corner for a 3.
