Giulina Mendiola scored 13 of her 20 points in the second half as Washington routed No. 6 Stanford, 92-68, last night to remain unbeaten at home.
The Huskies (18-6, 10-4 Pacific-10) bounced back against the conference leader after dropping two league games last week in Arizona and reversed a loss at Stanford on Jan. 18 in the teams' first game this season.
Washington improved to 12-0 at home.
Mendiola, Washington's skilled 5-foot-6 junior point guard, made 8 of 11 shots, including 4 for 5 from three-point range. She added seven assists and five rebounds.
Andrea Lalum had 16 points and Loree Payne 13 for the Huskies, who beat Stanford for the third time in their last four games in Seattle.
The Cardinal (19-3, 11-2) were led by Nicole Powell with 20 points. Chelsea Trotter and Kelley Sujminski each had 14 for Stanford, which had a four-game winning streak broken.
* GEORGIA 97, SOUTH CAROLINA 91: The No. 14 Lady Bulldogs overcame a 19-point deficit in regulation, then shook off the No. 15 Lady Gamecocks' three-pointer at the buzzer in regulation in Athens, Ga.
Mary Beth Lycett and Kara Braxton scored 19 points apiece to lead the Lady Bulldogs (17-5, 8-1 Southeastern Conference), who completed a season sweep of the Gamecocks (17-6, 5-5).
South Carolina's Petra Ujhelyi hit a three-pointer as the horn sounded to send the game to overtime tied at 72. The officials went to instant replay twice at the end: first to put four-tenths of a second back on the clock for an inbounds pass, then to determine whether Ujhelyi got the shot off in time.
The Gamecocks tied it again at 82 on Cristina Ciocan's runner in the lane with 2.7 seconds left in the first overtime. Lycett threw away the ensuing inbounds pass, giving South Carolina a chance to win, but Cristina Ciocan shot an air ball from outside the arc to force another overtime.
