Stanford rebounds with decisive victory over Maryland

NASSAU, Bahamas -- After dealing with a sprained left ankle for the past week, Haley Jones seemed to be back to her usual self.

Jones had 15 points and 13 rebounds to lead seventh-ranked Stanford to a 86-67 win over No. 2 Maryland on Saturday at the Baha Mar Hoops Pink Flamingo Championship.

"She has some genes," Stanford Coach Tara VanDerveer said. "For her to be moving the way she was, I didn't think it would happen. I was hoping she might be able to play in this game. Haley did a lot of rehab and she looked great out there."

The win was the second over a top-five team for the Cardinal in three days. Stanford edged No. 4 Indiana 69-66 on Thursday before falling by three points to No. 18 South Florida on Friday.

"This has been a real grind of a week," VanDerveer said. "Playing last Sunday at Gonzaga, 19 hours to get down here, play such great competition, I'm really proud of our team. Thought today I challenged our team to play their best basketball. We rebounded."

Hannah Jump, a last-minute addition to the starting lineup because Cameron Brink was sick just before the game, had 21 points, hitting seven three-pointers.

"Hannah had a breakout game," VanDerveer said.

Stanford (5-2) took command with a 12-2 run late in the first quarter, capped by Jump's third three-pointer of the period. The Cardinal, who lost on a shot in the final few seconds to South Florida 24 hours earlier, kept the run going in the second quarter.

Maryland (6-2) was short-handed to begin with as only seven players were dressed because of illness and injuries. Point guard Ashley Owusu battled through foul trouble to lead the Terrapins with 29 points.

Indiana led 39-38 late in the third quarter before the team scored 13 of the next 15 points to get some breathing room. Five different players, including Patberg, scored during the game-changing spurt. Her layup with 5:02 left made it 52-40.
