STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Stanford coach Tara VanDerver was hoping to give her starters some rest and give her reserves a few minutes before conference play. That seemed possible until Creighton pulled away in the second half.

Haley Jones had 16 points and eight assists in 37 minutes, freshman Talana Lepolo scored a season-best 17 and No. 2 Stanford beat No. 21 Creighton 72-59 on Tuesday night for its seventh straight victory.

Cameron Brink added 14 points and 16 rebounds in the last non-conference game for the Cardinal (12-1) before their Pac-12 opener against rival California on Friday at Maples Pavilion.

“I was really anxious to try to give some guys some minutes that hadn’t played, maybe in the Tennessee game, to give them a chance and maybe we just lost our focus a little bit,” VanDerver said. “I’ve got to do a better job of making sure we keep our rotation where they don’t make the mistakes we did.”
