NO. 11 OREGON STATE 79, CALIFORNIA 56

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Timea Gardiner scored 16 of her 19 points in a dominating second half, leading scorer Raegan Beers returned to action and Oregon State closed the regular season with a win over California.

Beers had 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting after missing the previous four games for the Beavers (23-6, 12-6 Pac-12). Donovyn Hunter had 13 points and nine assists and AJ Marotte had 12 points. Second-leading scorer Talia von Oelhoffen did not attempt a shot in 25 minutes.

Marta Suarez scored 14 points to lead the Golden Bears (17-13, 7-11). Leilani McIntosh had 13 points and reserves Lulu Laditan-Twidale and McKayla Williams both had 12.

WASHINGTON STATE 72, NO. 13 COLORADO 63

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Eleonora Villa scored 20 points, Astera Tuhina added 14 points and Washington State closed with a 14-0 run to beat Colorado 72-63 in the Pac-12 season finale for both teams.

Bella Murekatete and Tara Wallack each scored 12 points for the Cougars (18-13, 7-11).

Jaylyn Sherrod scored 18 points, shooting 11 for 12 from the foul line but just 3 of 16 from the field for Colorado. Aaronette Vonleh scored 15 points, Frida Formann 10 and Quay Miller grabbed 10 rebounds for the Buffaloes.

It was Colorado’s (21-8, 11-7) first loss to an unranked team this season. The Buffaloes rose to as high as No. 3 in the rankings on three-different occasions but now find themselves limping into post-season play having lost five of their last six games.

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Serena Sundell and Gabby Gregory scored 13 points apiece and Kansas State cruised by Texas Tech in both teams' regular-season finale.

Bailey Maupin scored 17 points and Jasmine Shavers 14 for the Lady Raiders (16-15, 5-13), who lost their ninth straight.

Sundell reached her third straight season with 350-plus points and 150-plus assists. Teammate Lee blocked two shots to reach 300 in her career, a program first.

NO. 24 WEST VIRGINIA 57, TCU 49

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — JJ Quinerly and Jordan Harrison scored 14 points apiece and West Virginia capped the regular season with a win over TCU.

TCU (19-10, 6-12), which had to forfeit two games in the middle of the conference season because of a lack of healthy players, had a four-game winning streak snapped.
