Oregon takes advantage of miscues

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Angelina Wolvert scored 19 points and No. 24 Oregon took advantage of poor free-throw shooting by No. 16 Wisconsin to defeat the Badgers 71-57 in the season opener for both on Saturday.

The Ducks got 14 points from Jenny Mowe and won easily despite the absence of junior guard Shaquala Williams, the reigning Pac-10 Player of the Year. She is expected to miss the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee in September.

NO. 1 UCONN 89, DYNAMO KIEV 35: Connecticut tuned up for its West Coast swing with a rout of an overmatched Ukraine team.

NO. 3 DUKE 81, WILLIAM AND MARY 46: Rometra Craig scored 19 points for host Duke. Craig hit three three-pointers in a 28-5 run that propelled Duke to a 41-24 halftime lead. William and Mary, playing its opener, never got closer than 15 points after that.

NO. 19 NORTH CAROLINA STATE 84, ELON 40: The Wolfpack overcame the absence of three of its top four scorers because of knee injuries in the first round of the GlaxoWellcome Invitational. Carisse Moody scored 15 points and Tynesha Lewis added 14 points and six steals for North Carolina State, which was without Kaayla Chones, Amy Simpson and Terah James. All will be sidelined four to six weeks.

NO. 9 LSU 92, SAM HOUSTON ST. 52: Guards Marie Ferdinand and Kisha James each scored 24 points for host LSU.

NO. 14 OKLAHOMA 87, ORAL ROBERTS 56: LaNeishea Caufield had 22 points and seven rebounds in the Bertha Teague Classic in Tulsa, Okla.

NO. 2 TENNESSEE 94, DEPAUL 52: Gwen Jackson had 17 points and 11 rebounds and Semeka Randall added 16 points for the host Vols. Tamika Catchings had 14 points and 10 rebounds and freshmen Ashley Robinson and LaToya Davis each added 11 points. All four of Tennessee's freshmen played. DePaul was led by Lenae Williams with 22 points, Molly Watson with 11 and Jamie Smith with 10. The Tennessee offense, spotty in the first half, was more consistent in the second half as the Vols expanded on a 43-31 halftime lead.

NO. 21 SW MISSOURI ST. 97, ARK.-LITTLE ROCK 34: Jackie Stiles, the nation's leading scorer last season, had 33 points. The host Bears scored the first 21 points and had a 32-4 run in the game's final 12 minutes. Muci Harris led the losers with 13 points. The Bears' defensive pressure was too much for the Trojans, who committed 37 turnovers.

NO. 25 ILLINOIS 80, CLEMSON 62: Anne O'Neil scored 18 points, leading five Illini players in double figures. Dawn Vana scored 15 points, Shavonna Hunter 13, Allison Curtin 12 and Iveta Marcauskaite 11 for host Illinois, which took a 21-11 lead in the first six minutes. Erin Batth had 20 points and Chrissy Floyd 15 for Clemson.


DAVIDSON 62, JACKSONVILLE 46: Sophomore post player Kat Sungy had a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds in a losing effort. Sophomore forward Kami Hatcher had nine points and senior forward Angela Walker had eight points.

ASHLAND 65, TAMPA 62: Junior guard Hattie Bagbey scored 13 points to lead Ashland to the championship of the inaugural Tip-Off Tournament in Quincy, Ill. Sophomore center Jessie McDowell scored a game-high 20 for Tampa. Truman State rallied to a 50-48 win over Quincy University in the third-place game.

NOVA SOUTHEASTERN 82, SAINT LEO 62: Freshman center Jessica Pate scored a team-record 29 points in her first collegiate game. Rosetta Little scored 12 for Saint Leo.
