Women’s Top 25 roundup: No. 18 Irish edge No. 20 Lady Vols

Maddy Westbeld scored 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as No. 18 Notre Dame beat No. 20 Tennessee 74-69 on Wednesday evening in Knoxville, Tenn., in the inaugural ACC/SEC Challenge.

Tennessee (4-3) led by as much as 16 points and was on top in the game for more than 36 minutes.

Westbeld was one of five players to score in double figures for Notre Dame (6-1). Natalija Marshall had 15 points and nine rebounds, Hannah Hidalgo tallied 13 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, KK Bransford added 12 points and Anna DeWolfe chipped in 11 points.

The Lady Volunteers were powered by 14 points and seven rebounds from Jasmine Powell, while Destinee Wells had 13 points and five assists.

Tennessee led by five points heading into the final frame, but a 14-7 run gave the Irish their first lead of the second half. Marshall scored six points in that stretch for Notre Dame.

The Lady Volunteers tied the game up with under two minutes to play, but jumpers from Hidalgo and Bransford allowed the Irish to take back the advantage. Two free throws from Westbeld with 10 seconds remaining pushed the Irish’s lead to two possessions.

While Notre Dame played without preseason All-ACC selections Olivia Miles (knee) and Sonia Citron (leg), Tennessee was missing preseason All-SEC forward Rickea Jackson (leg) for the fifth straight game.

No. 5 North Carolina State 70, Vanderbilt 62

Saniya Rivers scored 22 points as the Wolfpack beat the Commodores in a sold-out Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh, N.C., in the ACC/SEC Challenge.

Jordyn Cambridge paced the Commodores (7-1) with 15 points and five steals, and Sacha Washington added 14 points, seven rebounds and five blocks.

NC State led by as much as 26 points after Zoe Brooks and Aziaha James hit back-to-back 3-pointers and Brooks sank two free throws to open the fourth quarter. Vanderbilt clawed back and trimmed the deficit to eight points with a minute to play but never got any closer.

Taylor Jones had 27 points and 16 rebounds — both career highs — as the Longhorns beat the Golden Eagles in Austin, Texas.

Taleyah Jones led Oral Roberts (4-3) with 23 points while Ruthie Udoumoh had 13 points and eight rebounds.

The Tigers led by a point after the first quarter, but the Golden Eagles outscored them 23-6 in the second frame. Marquette led by as much 32 points and shot 62.5 percent (10 of 16) from 3-point range.

No. 25 Princeton 75, Seton Hall 71 (2 OT)

Kaitlyn Chen had 21 points as the Tigers topped the visiting Pirates in double overtime.
