COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Chiney Ogwumike had 21 points and 15 rebounds, Mikaela Ruef had a tiebreaking basket with 53 seconds left and No. 1 Stanford held on to beat No. 21 South Carolina 53-49 on Wednesday night.

The Cardinal (10-0) came cross-country to face the rising Gamecocks (10-1) and found themselves in a tough matchup. The game was tied at 45-all with 1:14 to go after Aleighsa Welch's foul shot. That's when Ruef drove left and put up a shot that barely caught the rim and fell in for the lead.

South Carolina had a chance to tie on its next possession, but Ieasia Walker made just 1 of 2 foul shots. Walker's 3-pointer with 3 seconds left drew the Gamecocks within 51-49 but that was as close as 5things got

Tami Kokenis had 15 points for Stanford, including six foul shots in the final minute to keep control.
