Iowa women fall hard in NCAA's to #1 seed Stanford

Posted:

STANFORD, CALIFORNIA (AP) -- Rosalyn Gold-Onwude hit a career-high seven 3-pointers on the way to a career-best 26 points and top-seeded Stanford shot a sizzling 68.8 percent in the first half and rolled into the Sacramento Regional semifinals with a 96-67 victory over eighth-seeded Iowa on Monday night.

Gold-Onwude knew this game was going to be about the guards and 3-point shooting -- and the Cardinal made their first nine shots from long range before JJ Hones' miss 3:21 before halftime.

Nnemkadi Ogwumike added 23 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in Stanford's 24th straight victory since its lone loss at undefeated defending champion Connecticut back on Dec. 23.
