Sports briefs: USF squeaks by Utah Valley state

The USF men’s basketball team traded baskets with Utah Valley State in the second half and managed to get by with a 67-64 victory.

No. 6 Stanford dominates USF

Stanford guard Candice Wiggins had just 13 points, but it was because the No. 6 Cardinal (6-1) jumped so far ahead, she got plenty of rest in their victory over Necolia Simmons and USF 96-61 at Maples Pavilion. Freshman Kayla Pedersen led Stanford with 18 points while Shay Rollins led the Dons with 19 points. It was the first meeting between the two schools in nearly three years.
