No. 13 LSU defeats Indiana State 83-66 shooting 72.7 percent from floor
BATON ROUGE, La. -- Raigyne Moncrief scored 22 points on Tuesday and shot 72.7 percent from the floor to lead No. 13 LSU in an 83-66 victory against Indiana State.
Moncrief grabbed nine rebounds and finished with six assists and five steals. She was named the SEC freshman of the week on Monday after averaging 20 points in the last two games, with 11 steals. Jeanne Kenney ended the matchup with a career-high 11 rebounds.
The Lady Tigers (7-1) shot 12.5 percent from behind the arc (1 of 8) but outscored Indiana State 54-24 in the paint. With 9:37 left to play in the first half, 16 of LSU's 20 points had come from layups.
Indiana State outscored the Lady Tigers in the second half (41-38), but could not erase the 20-point deficit that had built up before the break. Anna Munn led the Sycamores (3-2) with a game-high 24 points.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Shoni Schimmel scored 14 points, Bria Smith added 12 and No. 7 Louisville cruised to a 91-49 victory against Missouri State on Tuesday night.
Asia Taylor added 10 points and seven rebounds for the Cardinals (8-1), who played most of the game without senior guard Antonita Slaughter after she collapsed and was taken off the court on a stretcher early in the first half.
Louisville was leading 7-2 with 17:13 to play in the first half when Slaughter, who had started the game and scored the first basket, went to the bench and suddenly collapsed. Coach Jeff Walz and his staff rushed to her aid and EMS was immediately called to the bench.
Slaughter was transported to the hospital by ambulance. A Louisville spokesman said Slaughter was awake and alert and undergoing tests.
''She's coherent, she's responding to questions and talking with her family,'' Walz said. ''We're not sure and they're not sure what took place yet. I would say by tomorrow morning we should know more.''
Louisville used a 15-4 run that included three 3s from Schimmel to boost its lead to 24-8, and the Cardinals continued to bolster their double-digit lead.
WACO, Texas -- Odyssey Sims scored 29 points and had 13 assists to become the Baylor career leader in that category as the Lady Bears beat San Jose State 113-73 on Tuesday night.

Short-handed San Jose State (4-4), with only eight players in uniform, ran out to a 23-18 lead on Rebecca Woodberry's third 3-pointer with 13:40 left in the first half.
The Lady Bears then scored 14 consecutive points in less than three minutes, part of a 31-7 run by Baylor.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Karla Gilbert proved just too much to handle, scoring 16 points and pulling down 11 rebounds to lead No. 23 Texas A&M to an easy win against San Diego State 72-35 on Tuesday night.

Ahjalee Harvey led San Diego State (1-5) with seven points.
The Aggies ran out to a 17-3 lead at 9:46 of the first half and held SDST to just 14 points overall in the first, en route to a 17-point halftime lead. It got worse in the second half for the Aztecs, as A&M was able to put up 41 points after intermission.
