Brittany Boyd prefers to pass in her role as Cal's point guard, but her team needed her to shoot.

Though Boyd scored a career-high 28 points Sunday, the No. 10 Bears lost to No. 4 Duke 77-63 in Durham, N.C.

"It was more of me attacking," Boyd said. "They kind of left me open in the middle, and actually I was looking for my teammates. Usually I don't get that a lot, and it's easy for me to dump it off. I was just taking what they were giving me."

Boyd scored 23 points in the second half to lead Cal (6-1). She made 9 of 12 shots, including both of her 3-point attempts, after shooting 2 for 11 in the first half.

Layshia Clarendon added 13 points for the Bears, who shot a season-worst 36 percent.

Tricia Liston scored 22 points to lead Duke (6-0), which built a big lead early with a 22-2 run in the first half.

The Bears cut Duke's lead to 34-24 early in the second half, but they never got closer. Chelsea Gray hit a tough bank shot and two free throws as the Blue Devils responded with a 9-0 spurt.

Stanford 69, Gonzaga 41: Chiney Ogwumike had 21 points and 11 rebounds, and Taylor Greenfield scored a career-high 18 points, hitting six 3-pointers, to help the No. 1 Cardinal beat the Bulldogs in Spokane, Wash.

Joslyn Tinkle added 16 points for Stanford (8-0).

Greenfield made 6 of 8 from 3-point range as Stanford shot 49 percent from the field.

Taelor Karr and Haiden Palmer led Gonzaga (6-2) with 10 points each.

The game featured a matchup of sisters Joslyn Tinkle, a senior at Stanford, and Elle Tinkle, a freshman at Gonzaga. Their father is Montana coach Wayne Tinkle, who wore a shirt with "Gonzford" written on the front.

"It's a special feeling for them to watch their daughters out there and at this level," said Joslyn, who had eight rebounds. "It was extremely fun."

Stanford 71, Denver 58: Dwight Powell scored a career-high 29 points in helping the Cardinal defeat the Pioneers at Maples Pavilion.

Powell helped Stanford (6-3) dominate in the paint, where the Cardinal outscored Denver 34-14.

Royce O'Neale scored 17 points for the Pioneers (1-5), who lost their fourth straight.

Stanford, which started a 13-day break for finals after the game, never trailed. The Cardinal built an early 21-6 advantage, and Denver, which has not scored more than 68 points in a contest this season, never got closer than 10 the rest of the way.

Powell, who scored 19 in the first half, made his first six shots in helping the Cardinal to a 35-19 halftime lead.
