No. 16 Stanford women roll to victory

STANFORD — Lili Thompson's 12 points led a balanced attack as No. 16 Stanford coasted to a 90-34 win over UC Santa Barbara on Sunday.

Karlie Samuelson added 11 points and Briana Roberson and Brittany McPhee had 11 and 10, respectively, off the bench for the Cardinal (8-4) in their final tuneup before starting Pac-12 play. Fifteen players saw action and 12 scored for Stanford.

Santa Barbara shot 20 percent in the first half, falling behind 39-13, and 26 percent for the game. The Gauchos (0-11) were outrebounded 50-21 with reserve Erica McCall, who hit all four of her shots for eight points, leading the way for Stanford with 12.

The Gauchos scored the first bucket of the game but Stanford used a 15-0 run that turned into a 26-5 run to close the half. The Cardinal had a 17-0 run in the second half.
