Jones leads No. 2 Stanford women’s seed past No. 21 Creighton

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer hoped to find some rest for her starters and give the reserves longer minutes before conference play. That looked possible until Creighton got going in the second half.

Haley Jones had 16 points and eight assists in 37 minutes, freshman Talana Lepolo scored a season-best 17 and No. 2 Stanford beat No. 21 Creighton 72-59 on Tuesday night for the his seventh consecutive win.

Cameron Brink had 14 points and 16 rebounds in the last nonconference game for the Cardinal (12-1) ahead of their Pac-12 opener Friday at Maples Pavilion against rival California.

“I was really anxious to try and get some guys that hadn’t played minutes maybe in the Tennessee game to get a chance, and maybe we lost our focus a little bit,” VanDerveer said. “I’ve got to do a better job of making sure we keep our rotation where they don’t make the mistakes we did.”
