Stanford back in Sweet 16 with 86-76 win over Oklahoma

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Amber Orrange scored 24 points and Lili Thompson added 19 as Stanford's backcourt mates took the game over in the second half Monday to lead the fourth-seeded Cardinal to an 86-76 victory over fifth-seeded Oklahoma in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Bonnie Samuelson scored 19 points and Briana Roberson provided a spark with 13 points and tough defense to help Stanford (26-9) protect its home court and advance to the Sweet 16 for the eighth consecutive season. The Cardinal will play top-seeded Notre Dame (33-2) in the third round on Friday in Oklahoma City.

Kaylon Williams scored 24 points and Gioya Carter added 20 for the Sooners (21-12), who struggled to generate any consistent offense one game after scoring a season-high 111 points in a first-round win over Quinnipiac.

Oklahoma knew this game would be more difficult, especially on Stanford's home court, and that proved correct once Thompson and Orrange took over.
