It was the second consecutive season that Stanford lost to an unranked team as No. 1,

No. 2 LOUISVILLE 84, FLORIDA STATE 56
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kianna Smith scored 16 points to lead Louisville to a victory over Florida State.
The win by the Cardinals (12-0, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) coupled by an overtime loss by top-ranked Stanford at Colorado may likely give Louisville its first No. 1 ranking in program history when the new poll comes out Monday.
Louisville was originally slated to play N.C. State on Sunday, but the Wolfpack are on pause right now because of the coronavirus. The ACC reworked the schedule to setup the game against the Seminoles (4-2, 3-2), who played for the first time since New Year’s Eve due to COVID-19 issues. They dressed and played just eight of their 13 players Sunday.
Bionca Jackson scored a career-high 21 to lead Florida State.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (AP) — Veronica Burton scored 19 points and had five steals as Northwestern beat Penn State, picking up a third-straight win.

Jekot, a senior guard, suffered an injury in practice during the week and is out for the season, according to the school.

It was the first game in 28 days for the Orange because of coronavirus issues and the first of four in eight days, but the layoff didn’t hurt as they shot 17 of 30 behind the 3-point arc and 63% overall, their best shooting day ever in the Carrier Dome.
