AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas' Jody Conradt became the second women's coach to win 800 games, reaching that milestone Wednesday night when the 17th-ranked Longhorns beat No.7 Texas Tech 69-58.

Stacy Stephens had 16 of her 20 points in the second half, and Heather Schreiber had 15 points and a career-high 15 rebounds as Texas snapped Tech's 15-game winning streak.

Jia Perkins and Plenette Pierson led Texas Tech with 16 points each.

Conradt joined Tennessee's Pat Summitt (802) as the only women's coaches in the 800-victory club. Summitt reached 800 on Jan.14 with a win over DePaul.

The 61-year-old Conradt is 800-262 in 34 seasons, with one national championship. She and Summitt started the season tied at 788 wins.

NO.23 OKLA. 61, KANSAS 49: Maria Villarroel scored 23 to lead the visiting Sooners. Oklahoma has won its past five against Kansas. Stacy Becker hit a 3-pointer to cut the Sooners' lead to 49-44 with 6:43 left. But the Jayhawks' rally stalled, and Oklahoma outscored Kansas 12-5 the rest of the way. Villarroel scored more than 20 for the seventh time this season. She was 7-for-7 from the free-throw line.

VA. TECH 66, NO.23 RUTGERS 64 (OT): Chrystal Starling made two free throws with one second left in overtime, capping a 21-point performance for the host Hokies. Virginia Tech got six points from Starling and four from Ieva Kublina in overtime, but it needed Starling's free throws after Mauri Horton's 3-pointer with 17 seconds left. Horton had 16 of her 23 points after halftime for Rutgers. The Hokies used a 9-0 run to take a 52-44 lead with 3:59 left. But the Scarlet Knights slowly cut the lead and tied it at 55 on Cappie Pondexter's layup with 43 seconds remaining. Neither team scored again in regulation.


ECKERD 60, ROLLINS 56: Andrea Patterson scored a game-high 21 and had four rebounds for the visiting Tritons. Rollins was able to tie the score at 29 at halftime because it did not turn over the ball. Eckerd had 11 turnovers in the first half.

LYNN 63, SAINT LEO 43: The visiting Knights took a 10-0 lead 3:20 into the first half and were never challenged. Lynn held Saint Leo to 7-of-33 in the first half. Lisa Cronauer of Pinellas Park led Saint Leo with 14 points.

FLORIDA: Tipoff has changed to 1 p.m. for Sunday's game against George Washington in Washington.

SOUTH FLORIDA: Freshman guard Valerie de Velasco has been suspended one game for missing practice. She will miss Friday's game against Cincinnati. De Velasco will be gone until Tuesday because of personal reasons.
